Snails pace boring drama with boring actors
21 July 2018 | by PRWizardNYSee all my reviews

Political drama with no new ground covered. Stale dialogue and forced performances relegate this to the level of garbage found within the lowest rated video titles crammed on to sites like netflix. Adrien Grenier and Mimi Rogers careers have gone nowhere lately and this effort most certainly won't help their cause. I can't see any point in making mediocre films like this. Avoid 1/10.
