Cacophonous and Clumsy
24 November 2017 | by joeknockaneSee all my reviews

Truly remarkable how mechanically stapling bits of celluloid together until the requisite length is achieved qualifies as a genuine film product. This cacophonous and clumsy vehicle is untenable as a movie experience. Use the time to watch one of the hundreds of decent movies that you'll never see -- instead of this.
