Review: THE DEMOLISHER

demolisher

There’s a level of accomplishment that very few films are able to pull  off: being able to be striking and effective without having to rely on continual dialogue. These days, the typical audience member tends to put their money and attention towards films that are fast-paced and have a lack of room to breathe, and […]
