Shockingly Bad
13 January 2020 | by mckinleybrooksmortonSee all my reviews

This is a bad film. Without comparing it to the original, Jacob's Ladder (2019) is a very poorly made film. Compared to the original film, it is even worse. Looks cheap, bad editing, shakey cam, script is a rag, acting is pretty decent, but that can't save this piece of wreckage.
