Not good. This movie is not family-friendly

Just no.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
age 18+


Don't bother. The trailer was somewhat promising but the movie itself is nothing but disappointment. Not what I was expecting at all. Not the true story of Ross Ulbricht at all.

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
