Fortunately, in the midst of people’s distrust, during the chase, there were still 3 people calling for help. Watching these 3 people help Kate, made the audience extremely nervous because they could be arrested and Kate could immediately know her whereabouts.

Without them, perhaps Dr. Emil can carry out the bombing plan smoothly and Kate will still be charged.
Movies with a premise like this have actually hit the market. It made a Survivor movie that couldn’t get a good place in the hearts of the audience so the response was for this movie. They did not find anything new or special to delight them more than other similar films.
This ultimately affected the film’s rating by all film critics, most of whom did not give it a good review; and have to admit that this movie can be said to be funny but normal. Salenhanh gives a score of 3/5 for a movie that only makes a profit that is not commensurate with this production capital. Too bad huh?
