Oh, I like Berlin (and Hamburg too). Unfortunately, I don't get too many opportunities to see it these days. I would watch this mostly for the city. Everything else is a bonus if there's any good in it. Except for Mickey Rourke, he scares me a bit ...

LOL. Rourke is set to implode in 2020.

I was thinking: his skin is going to just fall off.

Well, 'considering' is a key word here ...

I hope not. I honestly wish him well. Unfortunately, he's another story of a reckless person in film industry ...

I want to see this for a modern movie. I love her, but most of what she does is corset-movies, and I'm not really a corset movie guy...

Idk...seems a bit too sappy and ridiculous. I get celebrating a cool/revered city, but none of these characters story arcs seem interesting to me... It's seems every time I see that "Saban Films" title card, it's almost a warning of a mediocre or cliche film trailer is coming after it...
