This is why people don't go to movies anymore...Long, Boring, Propaganda Galore
17 July 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Repetitive, very long and blatant propaganda film. Big bad white Christian's want to enslave minorities er APES (probably also undocumented) in a Nazi style camp and have them build a wall! To keep the other bad apes that kill innocent people out. Trump Derangement Syndrome on full display. How anyone gives this a high rating is beyond comprehension. Don't wast 2.5 hours of your time and valuable money to be spoon fed this liberal Hollywood tripe.
