User Reviews

 
Interesting but poorly written and produced
27 February 2019 | by qui_jSee all my reviews

This is an interesting story but one that is marred by poor production, low budget, and a bad script. Choppy editing and the use of cliched events of the era also do not help. The plot has huge holes that stretch the viewer's limit of credibility. It comes across as a very amateurish production for what might have been a really good saga.
