Seen It So Many Times
24 April 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is another tiresome portrayal of a superhero in a place where superheroes aren't trusted. The events are simply a lead-in to a movie. With all the similar stuff out there, once again a techno-society has created law enforcement methods using robotics. Boring.
