CGiii Comment

.....and it was agony.

What was Reed thinking?

Did the Studio get its grubby hands on this and hacked it to death?

The first 20 minutes can be cut without any pain.....it would be a welcomed relief.

In fact, if all the fiction was cut from this lousy epic - only a few minutes would remain.

Hollistory at its worst - surely, there is someone that could be sued for this bending, beyond all recognition, of the truth.
