They say a dog is a man's best friend, and Steve shows how far a man will go to be reunited with him. Written by https://teaser-trailer.com

First of all i read the early reviews for once upon a time in veince this movie of how its a bland Bruce Willis flick or how there isn't much comedy or how all the jokes fall flat but even after all that i decided to give it a shot now first of all it does not have very much action but the through out the movie the intense the story are very good and its nice to see Bruce Willis again for more then just 15 minutes

and when i was watching it i found it to be kinda like the red movies minus the action lol but as the movie went on the story became better a little confusing but it unravels itself throughout out it has a good story good characters good comedy and some ridiculous scenes you never thought you would see

so all in all i wish i saw this film instead of the movie power rangers but whats done is done anyone who is a Bruce Willis fan will probably enjoy this
