Not Bad
3 February 2018 | by naumankp-84871See all my reviews

I had watched Dayveon on Netflix about a few months ago I thought it wasn't bad at all since it was the directors film debut I like the fact that it look kind like a documentary the actors were all exceptional So congratulation to the filmmaker on his first directorial attempt I give it 5/10
