Great potential... ruined by bullying interviewers
5 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

I read the book when I was in Middle School so when I saw this documentary getting added to Netflix I was very excited to watch it. However this is a perfect example of why the media is hated and no one believes a word they say. The entire time the interviewer is trying to blame William Powell for every single terror attack that ever occurred since 1970. I feel more sympathy for the author of this book than I do any of the victims of the attacks committed by someone who read his book. I am an avid documentary fan. I will 9/10 times watch a documentary even when I know I'm not going to enjoy the rest, but I had to stop halfway through this dumpster fire because I couldn't stand the false message the producers where trying to force down your throat.
