Shallow.
1 April 2018 | by peter_janickiSee all my reviews

All these shallow things could have been sad in half an hour. But they kind of liked some nice scenerie. Its not only shallow, its not up-to-date. Even when it come out, chinese police was (partly) years ahead of this documentary.

F. e.: They critize, that the algorithms are based on recorded crimes and so they'll be helping rather those people who report crime. So, they are not perfect! But should they start with crimes no one knows of? And so it goes on. With concerned looking experts saying some truisms on a pier or sonewhere else.
