It's a good movie
14 September 2019 | by armanov-76390See all my reviews

I had fun watching it. The cast was amazing. Brad Pitt is obviously the highlight of the movie. Tommy Lee Jones was just classic Tommy Lee Jones.

The story is interesting, but some parts of it is kind of confusing and leave you with questions. And when I say questions, don't think that this is Interstellar or 2001 Space Odyssey level movie. It's not even close to those classics. The plot starts off by showing what the main character's mission is, what he is going to do, but then they end up doing something else instead. So huh? The opening scene was really interesting. I can see this movie having lots of fans. Some people will really love it, and some people ( like me) won't be really that impressed. Overall, I do recommend going and seeing it for yourselves to form your own opinions.
