If you are religious then watch it. If your realistic then spare yourself the 90 minutes - Extremely Disappointing in Blum House

Jason Blum is going downhill and has been for the past 5 years. His movies use to be edgy but now him and his production team are just releasing sub par films to keep money in his pocket. Rating 2 stars because I'm so disappointed in Blum house films and what they have been releasing. If you are religious then watch it. If your realistic then spare yourself the 90 minutes.
