My reaction
Concept:0/4 (Terrible) Unlike his previous travel shows, there’s no point to this one.
Story:0/4 (Terrible) No story.
Characters:1/4 (Bad)
Dialog:2/4 (Indifferent)
Pacing:1/4 (Bad)
Cinematography:3/4 (Good)
Special effects/design:0/4 (Terrible)
Acting: n/a
Music:0/4 (Terrible)
Subjective Rating: 4/10 (Eh, 2/4 (Indifferent)). Dull. There’s more focus on the film crew’s massive pile of luggage than anything else.
Objective Rating (Average):1/4 (Bad)
