A little bit disappointing
28 December 2017 | by mihaigeoSee all my reviews

I entered the hall with a lot of hope taking into consideration that Gheorghe Viasu, a consecrate actor, would play in this movie. I took my sit and I waited, it had started.The lights and the colors were detached from an Hollywood movie, the smooth frames taken by the image director were stunning,astounding if I can say. Otherwise, what made me disappointed was the plot and the fact that the main elements from the intrigue were hidden.They got to the effect without presenting the cause. The end was deplroable, and the humour from this movie is for everyone. I am not recommnending you to go and watch this movie being full of hope, it's a film for the saturday night which you watch with a friend and laugh together, you and all the hall.
