Unique but nothing special
31 August 2019 | by louis1011See all my reviews

This film has a very original take on a godfather-like story making for what should have been an amazing film. This isn't the case however because the filmmakers decided to add in way too many subplots that lead nowhere and an unnecessary amount of characters.

Overall this movie was okay but could have been a lot better than it was.
