- reptilian or insect-like alien females that have boobs

Plz tell me it's a propaganda movie like wolf warrior. That would be amazingly funny.

ShadowWolf7121125d ago

Never saw that one, so I'm curious. How was it propaganda?

Vits1125d ago

It's your traditional flair of american military propaganda but with a chinese flavor. I really recommend that you watch it. I think you can rent it on Amazon for like $4.
