So, not only is this movie somewhat ticking all the boxes in regards to race, it seems to be ticking all the right boxes to what most filmgoers want in an action movie...an action thriller at that! I'm not going to lie to you, the title is great, but what seems to be even better, is the vibe I'm getting with this movie. I'm getting a Charlie's Angel's vibe, but more serious. A John Wick vibe, but more sensational. Something like a John Wick mixed with The Hitman's Bodyguard, maybe? Maybe I need to come back to this, but the film looks great.
Although, I said ticking the boxes in regards to race, I do feel they should have done more. But these days these things seem to be heavy handed so I'm not sure if I even want that any more, unless it IS in fact woven into the story as there seems to be a world with secret assassins. I just mean to say, if we are seeing such a diverse group, maybe it should be throughout the film, but since I haven't seen it yet, there is hope. It's nice to see Lena Headey as I think she's great, as well as Michelle Yeoh and Angela Bassett. But Karen Gillan is funny in Jumanji, incredibly serious in Guardian's of the Galaxy and I'm just really liking the things she pops up in or her performance at least.
Whilst this film is slightly stylised like Atomic Blonde, but there seems to be some funny comedic bits peppered in and some slow-motion as if Zack Snyder directed this or is at least producing, I am definitely keen on watching. Let's hope another trailer doesn't unsell me.
Hmmm.....Maybe Suckerpunch!? I'm still thinking!
Directed by Navot Papushado and starring Karen Gillan, Lena Headey, Carla Gugino, Michelle Yeoh, Angela Bassett & Paul Giamatti
