Very stylish, but that gets old very quickly and it ends up being just a pile of shit.

Part Kill Bill, part Baby Driver, and part The Professional, with the glorified violence, theatrical lighting, blazing colors, gratuitous slo-mo, exaggerated sound effects, melodramatic score, and horribly stereotyped villains that we’ve become familiar with in Zack Snyder’s comic book movies.

Not sold on Karen Gillan as actress. Her delivery is stone-faced, never with any depth or any real humor. I’ve seen her do interviews, I can tell she has a personality, but I have yet to see it on film. She seems to be OK at action, but I can’t tell how much of it is real in this movie.

Surprisingly good cast, can’t believe how many respectable actors showed up for this one. I wonder if they knew what they were getting into. The pathetically flat, unfunny dialogue only exists for characters to out-cool each other in any given scene. It’s painful to watch these veteran actors deliver these lines.

The only interesting thing here is that this movie is all about women killing men. Is a statement being made here?

Movie poster looks like the Cocktail movie poster.
