Dumbest movie ever made
10 April 2021 | by qui_jSee all my reviews

It's impossible to make sense of this movie from the way it's edited. The scenes make no sense as they are stuck together in a random fashion that denies the viewer any form of story continuity. There are a couple of subplots that take place that are totally unrelated to the main story. One has to wonder what the producers and writers were smoking when they put together this "film". Hats worse is that a streaming site like Netflix would even stream it!
