A lacklustre bit of entertainment so light weight that it already comes in evaporated form, the dreadful Forever My Girl fails as a tearjerker, a romance, and a story of an absentee father trying to reconnect with the daughter he never knew he had.

Review: 'Den of Thieves'

Review: 'Den of Thieves'
There’s not much in the heist drama Den of Thieves that hasn’t been said or done better or more elaborately in dozens of other similarly themed films.

Digisaurus
