  • joey Noodles's rating of the film The Zoo

    I can clearly understand why this is not a very well viewed film from Ray. I saw it at the cinema and when me and my dad walked out we both said the exact same thing 'is it just me or did that make not one shred of sense?'. The fact is, it doesn't. The script is really awful, the story makes ZERO sense, how he comes to certain conclusions I do not know! 1.5/5
