Unsure
12 October 2018 | by blackberryphilskellySee all my reviews

Still kinda sat here thinking what was that? Kind of confused as to what the desire behind this production was. Wouldn't say it was terrible, wouldn't say it was good. Just felt that it was a hodge-podge of ideas that didn't have any real direction.

I enjoyed Jeff Garmin, fi d him a likeable character actor, not sure he can carry off stuff as the focal point.
