Good story about bad things
12 March 2018 | by monquiziSee all my reviews

Pushing Dead (2016) is not a movie about life's decline. It's about positive thinking and being brave in tough moments. All main characters show great ability to remain calmness in situations that you think is catastrophic.

The movie shows us, that there is no hopelessness until we create it.
