actor: Toby Kebbell


The 2020 sci-fi movie definitely does a great deal to emphasize the unreliability of the narrators telling Garrison’s story, and even manages to throw in some cool action sequences as well. However, what it excels with in action, it lacks where storytelling is concerned. A great deal of the [...]
