Danish american in an exciting time but dull package
3 February 2020 | by william-eugenssonSee all my reviews

Entertainment value: 5 Visuals: 6 Soundtrack: 4 Plot: 4 World building and depth: 6 Characters and dialog: 4 Total: 5

The good: Nice setting in the American 40s.

The bad: The dialog felt bland. The acting was not that good most of the time. The main character did not fit his role in my opinion. The American president was the sweetest old man, dunno if theodore roosevelt was that man in reality.
