  • 5 stars "Is there an echo in here? No, it's one idiot repeating the same complaints over and over in multiple bad reviews. No need to repeat yourself ad nauseam. You don't like Churchill, we get it."
  • 1 star "It should be illegal to lie to people like they do it in this movie"
  • 1 star "This guy was a mass murderer but they didn’t mention it in this movie"
