Starts off good but then drifts off
25 April 2019 | by thekingsdomSee all my reviews

This starts out good but then gets a little predictable. Sadly, it ends with a whimper. Shame really, as it could have been very good. The second half drags and becomes a bit dull. Not bad, but not great. It's worth a watch though. 5.5/10
