CGiii Comment

Bizarre...and, we mean, completely bizarre.

It looks good...but, it's all over the place. And that final song...what kind of coffee do you like...who came up with that?!?

It is imaginative, creative...but, it just doesn't come together. Shame, there is obvious talent on display.


Trailer...
