A remake of an old classic movie.
21 August 2017 | by aluvayersSee all my reviews

I found the movie to be refreshing and easy to watch. The acting was done very well. The plot never lost my attention. I will watch it again and I highly recommend this film as a good family watch. It has all the components needed to hold you on the edge of your seat, mixed with a little humor and enough drama to come off cleanly believable. I loved it.
