For Christ's sake, Australia, stop making this crap!!
9 February 2016 | by hoytyhoytySee all my reviews

And here we go again. A completely over-baked, slow production from an over-baked, slow book.

A lead character we are supposed to sympathise with, as he plods around oppressing people's rights and basically being a useless jerk-off.

Side characters we are utterly unable to care about.

A completely inaccurately portrayed police force, with logic-holes all over the place.

Dreadful, idiotic flashbacks.

And then a dreadful, idiotic main arc.

Stop it! Just STOP it! Make something good for once!
