Review:

I was kind of excited when I saw the trailer for this movie. Not because I thought it was going to be an amazing movie, but because, for once, it was a ton of women in an action movie. I wanted to see a bunch of women kicking ass and I kind of got that. There were certainly scenes with women beating up on people, but there were also lots of shots focusing on boobs and an overuse of the word bitch.

I don’t have a problem with the word, I just wish they’d diversified, it was redundant. There were a couple things like that, female stereotypes, just thrown into the dialog, all very cliché.

I’d love to have a female driven action movie that wasn’t crap production and had a better script.

2/5

 

Side note: Really love Zoë Bell
