A potential movie
26 December 2018 | by natanael-alvesSee all my reviews

I was pretty curious to watch this movie, mainly because of the awesome photograph presents on the trailer.

It is a movie with potential, but I watched a movie of 122 minutes that could be made as a short movie of 30 minutes. Along the film, we can see wonderful screens, but a lot of it, really long screens what make it boring, so what could let the history more dramatic, ends up with it longer than it could be, what breaks the drama.
