What is wrong with some people?
17 April 2019 | by pensacolacomputerSee all my reviews

This movie is about faith, family, and God. If this does not interest you, don't go see it, but at the same time don't write a review and pretend you did. Up to this point there are only two reviewers, Who both gave it one star. It's very obvious they didn't even see the movie because they don't believe in God. Why would someone go see a movie if they have no interest in it? Exactly. They didn't. What is wrong with some people? Is their heart that full of hate? Sad.
