Joanna Wick? Except with less puppy and more lesbian sex.

This is from the co-director of John Wick, so Joanna Wick does seem to be apt.

Ah well there you go. The action looks similar and John Wick was a lot of fun. But I've gotten old fashioned on my old age. I can put up with some violence (though not as much as I used to) but I tend to stay away from.... other graphic scenes these days.

I've never seen filmatography like that, so awesome. Like I don't really care for the concept that much, women have a very hard time indeed going toe to toe with even one average man in hand to hand combat, but because that filmatography is awesome, I'm interested.

It is a little tough to separate reality from fantasy in movies that look like they're supposed to be based in reality. But movies like this and John Wick pretty much are fantasy when you have them taking on hordes of giant dudes for nearly 2 straight hours.

Reminds me of Haywire, another underrated female-fronted action flick.

I find her wholly unconvincing in those action sequences. otherwise it would be a good looking movie, just need a better actress... or perhaps one more suited to the role.

Looks good. I like how they are following the style of John Wick with uncut action scenes. Too many movies slice up action scenes into 1000's of cuts which is really annoying. The Honest Trailer for John Wick really showed that off well with a scene from one of the Taken movies consisting of Liam Neeson jumping a fence which used 12+ cuts with nauseating shaky cam just for that single action.

She's also 41 now, starting to show her age.

The opening scene, albeit quite good, just seemed un-realistic. The pauses between each hit just seemed odd. Sure, of course, action scenes are easier with multiple cuts but if you're not going to do that they the scene(s) need to be ultra tight... probably why not many films have it in one take.

P.s. Loved the film John Wick.

Why was that red-band? Don't recall any nudity or ultra violence. Oh well looks, interesting.

Doesn't matter if she's 41, if she weren't so uneducated politically she'd be a 10 in my book.

Well, this won't be a long series of films. She's got a few years left before she's sidelined for younger actors.

Not really sold on her in the role. Not really sold on any woman, or even most men, taking even ONE of those shots in the fight scenes and getting back up. Yes, it's a movie, but John Wick is believable. This just looks...silly.

I dunno, in the first scene where she looks like Kim Basinger I thought it looked pretty decent how she was clearly staggered with each hit. She took the hits hard and was clearly getting hurt where a guy might be seen shrugging them off. Considering she's supposed to be highly trained in hand to hand and these looked like a couple of thugs I wouldn't be surprised at this. Also remember one dude is shot right off the bat so isn't exactly 100%.

The pace of the fight was slow which is what I expect for a "real" fight with a woman against two guys in that sort of clothing in that scenario. Makes sense as this is one of the few scenes you can actually sort of see her face in. The other fight scenes? Not so much.

Not to me! She's perfect. Great actress, a shame she is the typical Hollywood liberal.

I don't even mind if the Hollywood weirdos are liberal, but just keep your mouth shut so we can ALL enjoy your movies. Goes for Conservative Hollywood actors too. Just shut up and make movies.

You don't see Ryan Reynolds out there spouting out political nonsense and that way everyone gets to enjoy his movies free from any politics.

Yeah, I'm with you on that. I mean, they're free to express their opinions, it's just when they try to use their public podium to influence people it hurts their image.


The last thing an average American wants is to be talked down to or be made to feel guilty by a rich actor.
