Unbelievable!!!
16 October 2016 | by jondoeinfowarsSee all my reviews

After working 15 years in the Television & Film industry as a member of the Screen Actors Guild as an actor, body double, stuntman and stand-in I have never experienced a movie with such grammatical perfection and emotional humanitarian articulation! I have been honored to work with individuals such as Jerry Lewis, Bert Reynolds, Anthony Perkins etc... Mr. Murphy we have all been waiting for a movie such as this to bring cultures, humans and races together. This is Pure humanitarian perfection!!! God bless you. Words cannot express the depth of your contribution. The acting, script, story-line and cinematography is beyond words. I will make sure to support and provide to my personal and knowledge and to fellow actors and friends whom all need too experience this exceptional movie. Well done my friend!
