Good One
11 April 2019 | by TweetienatorSee all my reviews

It looks like some people have no other leisure activity as name-bashing... Destroyer is a fine movie about dirty cops with great acting and some emotional depth. Kidman's performance is excellent: so if you just want some car-crashings and gunfights avoid Destroyer and watch Fast & Furios Part XXX instead, but in the case you want to see some good ol' storytelling, watch.
