Where did they find this reviewer?!
13 April 2021 | by cocobean-30157See all my reviews

Boy, I hope this imdb reviewer has a day job. "Great filmaking" is much more than slick Hollywood effects or great use of light and shadow blah blah. In many cases, a film's innocent and unsophisticated presentation can be the very thing that makes it good, though this film has alot more going for it than just that. Maybe the reviewer would have preferred Denzel as the father, but thought it was quite good as is.
