It's An OK Movie To Watch But Has A Tired Used-To-Many-Times Storyline For It's Foundation
26 September 2020 | by dwp1948See all my reviews

09/25/2020 Just a decent "Daddy Tries To Save Druggie Daughter From Dealer Boyfriend". The acting was A-OK, the storyline fractured and weak. The lack of storyline reality hurt it the most as did the badly directed fight scenes. After it got going, I realized that I've watched it once before but I continued. Now that it's over, I hope to never accidentally watch this movie again. Bon Appetit'
