A hard too watch...
7 March 2018 | by jackpato-942-639550See all my reviews

Looked interesting and I love a lot of superhero tv shows/movies but this... this is just terrible. The acting feels forced and hard to ignore, a lot of the characters are stereotypical with next to nothing unique about them.
