Its so bad i made an account on IMDb just to say that
8 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

I mean for a movie with these good names in it, you would expect something good. I ain't saying perfect, but good. I was going to end the movie somewhere after it started because it was really terrible, looked very cheap and made up. Plot is even worse. The story can get a 3 maybe, but its really bad. Maybe because of the famous faces in it, i don't know, i got some expectations before hand. But still, don't waste your time on it. I just did an account to tell u that.
