Trash at desert
9 May 2019 | by nethy-nhoSee all my reviews

Firstly, I wanted to watch because of the huge ants, but well, it's just one more movie trash, kinda without great ideas, with poor visual effects, and terrible actors, but at lest, it's funny to watch, and you totally will laugh with some moments, the problem it's just the story that is not creative.
