REVIEW:
A full cast of celebrity favorites and an experienced, wonderful director has all the makings of a fantastic movie right?! Right! Just not this time.
After the movie was over, I sat for the longest time just wondering what the heck. I just didn't get it. I get there was drugs, corruption, and lies... you know the usual... but whatever dots were supposed to connect just didn't and the whole thing became lost to me.
Definitely was not what I would call an "adrenaline-fueled thriller". My adrenaline didn't even flicker. No, this movie was just a big disappointment to me.

  2. Thanks. I saw this on Apple TV and we thought about watching it last weekend, but we chose something else. I think we'll skip this one.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
