lost message
23 June 2019 | by mtgospillerSee all my reviews

What a failed and disappointing product. Everything in this film is tainted by the wasted focus on 'Weev'. Provocative behaviour does not make anyone listen. He deserves absolutely everything he gets. Trying to defend his rhetoric and behaviour through half-assed arguments ruined the rest the films message. Truly sad.
