Audience Reviews for Chuck Norris vs Communism

Although it is very interesting to learn about how those people living in a heavily controlled Communist regime silently rebelled against the status quo by watching movies, the conclusion it draws in the end sounds more like a silly, unfounded jump than anything else.
