Recap on the epic movie reviews

Yahoo gave the movie 1 out 5 stars for lack of story focus, full of advertisements in the movie, and calls it a “disappointment”.

8Days called the movie “amateurish” and that the movie is going downhill.

Mothership called it “120 mins of advertisement with a hint of the movie.”

Epic reviewers say “The movie gave me cancer

My Grandfather smoked his whole life.

I was about 10 years old when my mother said to him, “If you ever want to see your grandchildren graduate, you have to stop immediately.”

Tears welled up in his eyes when he realized what exactly was at stake. He gave it up immediately. Three years later he died of lung cancer.

It was really sad and destroyed me. My mother said to me- ‘Don’t ever smoke. Please don’t put your family through what your Grandfather put us through.”

I agreed. All through my adulthood, I have never touched a cigarette.

I must say, I feel a very slight sense of regret for never having done it, because the movie gave me cancer anyway.

  • There’s basically zero effort, I remember seeing casting news last October, and now it’s fully released in theatres in a week?! This movie went cleared nearly half of pre-production to post-production in the span of 4 months. It was clearly rushed, either because nobody wants to work on this project, or because there is just ridiculously poor planning. No way in hell did anybody expected this to do well.
  • I expect this to just be a 90 minute long youtube skit. Ain’t paying to find out tho
  • “I never called this movie lazy because it takes effort to be this terrible”
  • Jack, enough means enough la. 4 already dry you want whack 5.
  • This is Neo’s latest effort to make money from advertisers.
