kinda hard to review something after it's been pulled 3 days in.
7 November 2018 | by polarity_picturesSee all my reviews

Thought they made this movie to use as excuse to clean money. obviously 100 million budget and bad reviews kinda shot them selves in the foot. Kevin costner knows how it's like.
