    “War, the breeder of hate”
    Well, where do I even start with this. I know a lot of people will see my rating for this film and react on a reactionary impulse that’s too weak-minded to see into opinion, maybe forcing them to block/unfollow me. To those people I say go ahead, it suffers me no loss, only a gain; to the others that have come here to read my thoughts on what I truly…
