The acting was real crumby and the story was really off.

This title has:

Too much violence
age 15+

Great Plot.... Black Mirror warning!

This film is filled with Disney Actors and Logan Paul. They navigate themselves in a dark, dystopian future. We get to know the characters well enough to care about the ones that are fighting for the world to become a better place. Some of the plot lines are predictable but there are some elements of surprise which keep it interesting.... There are some gruesome parts, but nothing too confronting. I really enjoyed this film and look forward to a next one ( although it seems that some Logan Paul haters have tried to ensure that those in this franchise will not get to act as these characters for a third time) Well done to the writers, directors, producers and all of the actors.... It's not a brilliant blockbuster but a wonderful youtube movie. I will be keeping an eye out for other youtube movies. I hope they are given a chance as they have shown they truly can create entertainment.
