very well executed- terrifically entertaining
4 February 2019 | by aminifatimaaaSee all my reviews

A wonderful buddy comedy that boasts not just a great central duo, but also an impressive control of tone, as the chemistry between characters work well. If you are looking for good entertainment, but also crave serious stakes and thus action with real weight to it, this is the film to watch.
