Bad script, bad acting, bad paste
22 April 2021 | by imdb-710-940814See all my reviews

The movie is a genuine B movie of the worst kind. The script and the acting is so bad, it is impossible to watch. The slow speaking and slow paste is unbelievable and utterly causing boredom. This has nothing to do with a movie. Even as a todays standard school project it would not be acceptable. It is like there was nobody in the team criticizing during the process. Did investors commit suicide after seeing it?
