This documentary was a poor

I expected better! UGH! The documentary was like... i don't know... fake! More fake than real. Like 'did' this really happen. Hmm.... Making the Hamilton documentary movie seemed a bit "impossible?" but yet so real! Can't!

One of the best documentary movie I'vs seen!

This documentary movie really impacted me to see how hard they put in their time to make Hamilton happen. This movie has some slightly mature moments but it runs smoothly! The documentary had some parts that just made me think: "Gosh, I never knew it took just this." It made me think a lot after I saw this documentary movie. Not for young kids but mainly for teens!

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much swearing
