My rating is: 80%
Should you watch it: This is a very good and interesting story. The twists and turns in this movie will leave you laughing, smiling, and exclaiming “They got cha”. If you like political intrigue you will like this movie.
Performance of the Actors: Everyone played their role to the point of perfection. The “godfather” was good and perfect. I love the line in part 3 “call it rebranding if you like” and “ you’re the oh , oh seven of our country” lmao double 0 seven dumb-dumb would have been easier. Lol. And further more in the world of blackberry how dare you have a Motorola razor as your phone senator. I cannot tell you more, it will ruin the movie.
