You'd think that with such a list of big name stars this would be a great movie but the terrible script, lackluster acting and annoying soundtrack ensure that this is a dud.

In this age of movies with strong female roles this was well constructed as an action movie with well developed characters that you can root for. The plot was ok if not predictable. There is a lot of blood and gore kills so not one for the kiddies. This is weird as there is not a if any swearing in this film. My only issue is that of the interplay between the mother and her adult child is very stilted and slows down the pace of the movie. Come on we don't need a pause to catch our breaths here, get on with the murdering gals.

Ps the blokes will like this film as well.

I rarely have a bad time watching a movie, usually the worst case scenario is me being bored. This one rubbed me the wrong way.

One of the first scenes is 15 years in the past, where young Karen Gillan and her mother are sitting in a diner, cheesy music playing on the background, sharing a milkshake, both having a straw in their mouth while staring deep into each other's eyes, yet not drinking. This indicates that it's not the milkshake they enjoy, but the ritual itself and company of one another. Or perhaps it's in the actresses contracts that they don't have to consume any sugary products, I don't know. At least someone came along and took a sip between shots. I don't know why this bothered me so much.

As for the movie itself, I don't have much to say. I found it meaningless. It's decently shot, but the action is mediocre, Karen Gillan's deadpan performance was fine, but the rest of the cast was pretty bad. I don't blame the actresses though, I blame the script.

I think it tried to be a metaphor for a male dominated world in which women have to fight for change. They pointed out twice that The Firm consists only of men. "There is a group of men called The Firm. They've been running things for a long, long time. They make all the rules and change them when it fits their needs. They think they are untouchable and can get away with anything, but they wont". The thing is, the main character is an assassin working for The Firm and she ends up killing the son of the leader of another organisation. Then she takes another job, she disobeys orders knowing very well the consequences and on top of that she also messes up. She loses the protection of The Firm and now the other organisation is out to get her. They are the main antagonists, not The Firm. So what was the point? Whatever they were going for doesn't work on any level.

Let's just say the Librarians wouldn't recommend her Tolstoy, would they now.

Great cast/acting! Loved the Librarian storyline and campy feel. Very entertaining and fun. Girl power!!

I skipped on doing the dishes, to watch this one.

Should have done them instead.

So much talent put to so little use. Have litteraly no idea why these actors did this. Must all be really short on money.. The idea of an all women action story is good, just not like this.

Kept hoping for it to be good.

A knockoff of a joke knockoff of Tarantino.

People like to overthink the quality of movies and they end up ignoring if they enjoyed it. I liked it. It was fun, slick, clever and obviously had a female John Wick flavor to it. But that's not a bad thing. It could have used better, more memorable villains and a stronger, more creative plot. Also, why is it always Russians? But other than that I enjoyed it. That's good enough for me.
