Suprising solid..
5 January 2019 | by BatmanFunReviewsSee all my reviews

Jim Button and Luke the Engine Driver is not a movie that i even knew about but since Shirely McClane was in it? i said to myself that i should definitely give it a shot and i'm glad that i did cause this movie actually packed some solid perfomances and story but also some pretty good and suprising good in a whole effects alongside a pretty good entertainment in the end film.
