Diversity overload and bar lowered as ever
13 November 2018 | by azazazdtcSee all my reviews

I was truly excited by the premise of this title.

15 minutes in, I started wondering if there was going to be something else than beautiful pictures and virtue signaling.

30 minutes in, according to this movie, I drew the conclusion that engineers are either people of color or women, or both.

40 minutes in, I signed off, baffled by the level of virtue signaling and the lack of actual engineering content.

This Hollywood propaganda is really a shame afaiac: so much money, yet so little actual content.
