User Reviews

 
I liked it and hope there is a 3rd instalment
6 July 2019 | by bsutton-23899See all my reviews

Struggling to understand the sub 6 scores.

This isn't meant to be a popcorn die hard style action flick. Instead it shows the dark and seedy sides in the cartel and Gov't conflict in both sides of the border.

Really hope there is a 3rd instalment made
