Not a movie for SJWs, wimps, etc.
This movie was a breath of fresh air. It's made for minorities, who ate different from white SJWs. It's non-PC and oozing masculinity like an old Clint Eastwood movie. It will make wimps run to their safe spaces, need a pacifier, or a warm glass of milk. The bad reviews are by people who probably ran from a fight in high school, had their lunch money stolen, or we're locked in their lockers by meanies.
