Great movie, but lazy!
4 March 2015 | by semperfidniSee all my reviews

This movie was well put together and I enjoyed the scheme of the movie. There was a few things I saw. I could see that in the end playing football they were wearing red matching jerseys, but they replayed the same scenes over from the beginning where the football was on the ground and they were about to start and it showed the beginning scene in the different unmatched jerseys and then all of a sudden they were wearing the red jerseys again. You could see they just replayed scenes over and over and they didn't coordinate it. It was a great movie and I did enjoy it. I just can't get over at how bad it was watching the fact that they couldn't make new scenes and make them match accordingly.
