Hard to care for any character
3 August 2019 | by mennivetvadjagmenarSee all my reviews

Sometimes the characters have reasonable motivations and valid points - but most of the time all the characters are just unlikeable. Solid acting from the three leads makes the first act enjoyable but after that it's hard to care for any character
