Thunderbolt 2, Humanity, and the Consequences of War

The idea of being human has a myriad of components many would look into from a biological and philosophical sense. Some of the most commonly discussed components used as the defining factor for what makes someone “truly human” include: a sense of individuality and identity, the ability to communicate with people in a natural way, tact in regards to the dead, and the idea of dealing with trauma.

The only redemption this movie have is the fairly interesting ...
