I do not understand why the DVD cover rips off Jigsaw's movie poster
11 August 2019 | by vadimarlynSee all my reviews

But anyway despite Theron being watchable and the stuff of male fantasy given her thin nubile appearance the movie was mostly boring and psychotic. The menage a trois spiced things up but the revelation and twist dashed it all away.
