Canadian Embarrassment ☹
6 May 2019 | by robstephen72See all my reviews

Turned on and first sceen I saw was a helicopter taking off in front of a backdrop of the White House. Story line must have been written by a child. I don't understand why Canada has such terrible movies. Not all are terrible but this one takes the cake.
