Very enjoyable from start to finish. I think it could have been made into a three-part trilogy with more background detail and history of how each main character became who they are. But nonetheless very well done with a surprisingly pro-american message that is very much lacking these days and what America most definitely needs... GREAT JOB Filmmakers!!
