I Hate It
7 May 2018 | by eismocSee all my reviews

The movie is ridiculous. Nothing is there but extremely boring, endless, meaningless titles and scenes. There is nothing. The story is nothing. Acting is nothing. It is a set of continuous nonsense, floating by in the form of scenes, from minute 1 all the way to minute 101.
