Interesting story. Not so great video.
26 April 2018 | by macjohnmccSee all my reviews

Throughout the story music plays over the top of people talking making it difficult to hear them clearly. At times a bass line is thumping over the talking. Other times the talking in one scene is much louder or quieter than the previous. It really suffers from poor editing more than from the content. I think all of the background music should be stripped from the video or at least removed from segments where people are talking. It is especially grating when someone is talking with a noisy background and the music is playing over the top.
