23 February 2017 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

The movie begins with a what if scenario. A really funny one and it sets the tone really well. The fun really keeps going all the way through. There are moments where the movie seems to kind of stop and it doesn't really feel right what happens. But apart from the fact that the movie tries to keep it as real as possible, there is still a big fantasy part to it all.

Which brings us to the point of the message. Pretty sure some will think it's a wrong one to glorify things, but that would be seeing this the wrong way. It's supposed to be fun and just entertain, not give you a wrong life advice. To be honest, I do think the movie is pretty good at pointing out the wrongness in being criminal. Again, just watch this and be entertained
