Mind Numbing Bad
11 May 2020 | by scoop492See all my reviews

I lost an hour and a half of my life watching this drivel. From poor directing, acting, confusing plot, lines that are beyond bad... I need to find a way to remove this "movie" from my memories. Two stars because I am in a generous mood.
