Terrific Movie!!!!
26 January 2013 | by mfama_2081See all my reviews

So I was bored sitting here at home tonight. I love watching movies and couldn't find anything to watch. I stumbled across "Johnny" on netflix. These are my thoughts in regards to the movie "Johnny". I did not know what to expect when I first turned it on. Now after watching, I am proud to say that this movie is such an awesome movie. It is very inspirational. I think it can teach us all some valuable lessons if we pay close enough attention. It is nice to see a clean movie with an outstanding story line. I would highly recommend it for all to see. Keep in mind, it does involve the death of the boy Johnny who had Leukemia. So you might want to view it before allowing younger children to watch.
