Ugh. This guy is still, "Look at me, look at me!"
5 August 2019 | by jcp370See all my reviews

I couldn't get past 23 minutes. Jayson Blair himself dominates the beginning so don't expect anything hard-hitting. He's still making excuses and begging for attention. The initial coverage in this film is almost glowing. He's a complete and total loser. Don't waste your money; no suspense, no tension, just Jason, Jason, Jason.
