Missing something
24 September 2020 | by ariagfryeSee all my reviews

This movie is missing something. A very retold story. I was excited to watch it at first, as Noah Schnapp is in it. Yet I just wasn't satisfied. It was boring and rather unsuspenseful. My family wasn't entertained and only I finished the movie. There could've been more to happen. It was so plain, reminded me of like a plain grain muffin. As someone who is a HUGEEE history buff, I've seen a lot of films very similar. This movie does not have much to it.
