How to Blow Up a Pipeline
There’s a purposeful lack of characterization in How to Blow Up a Pipeline because the story is built off of shared passion and mutual frustration between a team of amateur environmental activists/eco-terrorists who are tired of waiting for a difference to be made. They’ve been pushed to their limits after being promised that a change is approaching. How to Blow Up a Pipeline is a very angry movie, and it’s also one of the best…
Simulant is a good recommendation for those looking for a solid sci-fi action/thriller and in-the-moment entertainment.
