R | 109 min | Biography, Drama

10 Metascore

Directors: Chuck Konzelman, Cary Solomon | Stars: Ashley Bratcher, Brooks Ryan, Robia Scott, Jared Lotz

Votes: 12,840 | Gross: $18.99M

eC rank: #1 (Note: This movie was presumably deemed eligible for the list on the grounds of not having been released in Spain until July 2020, over a year after its US premiere.) "That the woman's right to decide over her own body is still questioned in 2020 is already despicable in itself, and making a movie meant to manipulate the viewer into this point of view isn't any less so."

Votes: 25,067

eC rank: #6 "The fact that [Disney] had already been moving around its theatrical debut for long already hinted that its quality was far from ideal. [...] And of course there were plenty of comments and memes over Judi Dench's appearance as commander Root, who maybe should put more thought into her choice of roles after her feline experience in Cats (2019)."
