Crude and disappointing copy
30 October 2018 | by richardscook-642-706516See all my reviews

In 2006, National Geographic produced a fantastic speculative piece called American Blackout. Very insightful, very realistic and it raised a lot of questions most viewers had never thought of. This is almost exactly the same, except the British writers throw in the f bomb every other word. What dies it add to the story, guys? Absolutely nothing. Instead, the constant crudeness detracts from the messages of the film. Very very disappointing.
