Why It Sucks
- It has a lot of similarities to GMW with both films having the main character living a miserable life until the ending. In addition to this, both films were released on the same date.
- This movie is basically nothing, but pseudo-leftist propaganda.
- Poor acting here and there, especially in the café scene.
- Poor story, LCW lives a miserable life throughout the entire film and rarely gets any character development because of it.
- The movie even used the aspect ratio of 1.85:1 (similiar to Joker), rather than using an aspect ratio were shot anamorphically (2:39:1).
- Produce placement everywhere, such as Slim Jim, Los Angeles' Power Plumbing during the final shooting scene.
- Very unlikable characters, An example is Ronnie. He is a downright unlikeable protagonist and a blatant rip-off of Arthur Fleck/Joker in the 2019 film of the latter.
- Even though that what some critics said about this movie, the movie never accurately reflects real-life scenarios in America today, and is more of a picture of how pseudo-leftists and SJWs see it, also being full of tired SJW tropes and cliches, such as Ronnie being some kind of evil, hateful, fascist, racist as said before and a bigotted right-winger. In fact, this movie actually seems and sounds more like a parody, rather than being a very serious message about political and social problems.
- Ronnie's mother is the only likable character, but sadly, she gets killed by her son Ronnie.
- It can sometimes be hilarious.
