An Easy To Watch, Well Rounded Movie
25 January 2019 | by fredgfinklemeyerSee all my reviews

01/24/2019 Immediate viewer immersion is guaranteed. A couple of slow spots, building the storylines foundation, but once that's done, your hooked. I really enjoyed this easy to watch movie, a pleasant change from the standard fare we're forced to watch. Bon Appetit
