Too Much
25 August 2018 | by lifesoboringSee all my reviews

Too much complicated plot, too many characters, too much intrigue, too much happening in story so makes you confused. But there is humor and action and decent acting. Bob, the main character's black assistant, was outstanding. Ditto the fancy sporty car they were tooling around in---before it goes ka-boom. Had the feel of a TV serial.
