Cons...that disipates very soon, giving way to a film ...

Generally confounded Not necessarily by the film though I’m not convinced that it really makes sense rather by the idea of trying to review the film without spoiling it all – if spoil it you can. I’m not sure I particularly liked the film though it did do some things rather well but it has one...
