Wanted – Movie Review

Good but could’ve been better. Overall a good action movie. Has a certain fresh approach in it.  A little farfetched at times, but not too much to make you annoyed.

In our area, all power lines are up on the poles, nothing is in the ground. Every time there’s a storm or strong wind trees and branches are falling. Every time they … Read more
