HI! my film has the same issue. 16 good reviews. There's only 1 random 1 star review from a person who never ever rated another film. SO why is that counted? thanks for your insight!

So he was 118 when he was on the grassy knoll!!!!

Did he fire from his wheelchair.

Or did he fall over when he let go of his walker to aim?
