Trivia

On December 7, 2017, it was announced that due to the clashes between producer Scott Rudin and David Ellison, a financier at Paramount, and the shift in Paramount's leadership, a deal was struck with Netflix handling international distribution rather than releasing the film in theaters. According to this deal, Paramount would handle the U.S. and China release, while Netflix would begin streaming the film in other territories seventeen days later. See more »

Been a while since i was this disappointed
1 March 2018 | by merpman-94402See all my reviews

I was expecting a mind bending, make you ask questions of your own existence kind of movie. Did not get that at all.

What i did get was a slow, huge plot hole, mess of a boring didnt ask any questions at all really kind of movie.

Nearly fell asleep, i would have, except the guy 2 rows behind me was snoring too loudly !
