a nice paced one
3 March 2018 | by badiconproductionsSee all my reviews

Lately I enjoy more the episodic actors you bring in than the leaders. They are really good performers but they disappear with not too much explanation, such as Ancient Prisoner (Frank C. Turner) with a rich history as an isolated prisoner or that maniac Yard Guard (Raresh DiMofte) we should've seen more of his abuse of power, etc. Anyway, max rating for the underrated ones.
