7/10: You got any boom-boom lemon
Sunday, September 12, 2021

Seeing Woody Harrelson in a trailer for this film is what brought me to it, but for all practical purposes, he serves no more than a bookend for this story about his protégé Kate (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), a superbly trained assassin who's targeted herself when she fails to follow through on an important assignment. Surreptitiously given a drink laced with polonium-204, Kate faces a hopeless future of exactly twenty four hours in which to exact her revenge on the person who contracted for her demise. If one has seen enough of these types of stories, your antenna should be up early for signs of the double cross that inevitably follows, along with the insanely brutal violence that erupts whenever our title character is faced with a challenge. There's not much new that can be added to this genre, but I was fascinated by that highly stylistic and neon inspired car chase early on, with filming angles that...

5/10: another one
Tuesday, September 14, 2021

Kate (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) is a professional assassin working under her mentor Varrick (Woody Harrelson). He had trained her from when she was a young orphan. She's in Japan to kill a yakuza leader. At the last moment, a girl shows up on the scene breaking her main rule of not endangering children. She is ordered to kill anyways. She considers quitting her job. Later, she is poison and given 24 hours to live or in her case, 24 hours to exact revenge.It's the same old same old. It's another pretty girl turned trained killer. I almost appreciate more the Tokyo street life. I enjoy the vending machine and the limited back alleys. The fact is that Japan is nothing new either but it's interesting that this movie is going full Lost in Translation. As for Mary, she's never played an icy cold killer. Even in Birds of Prey, she's more an awkward...

1/10: Netflix still want to make how many John Wick wannabe film? Full of boring conversation, and annoying overuse scene! Avoid at all cost
Monday, September 13, 2021

This film start with a woman "Kate" talking with her mentor "Varrick" in a truck, and she killing a man scene! As turnout, this film is about Kate need to kill Varrick to save a young girl "Ani"! Entire film full of boring conversation, and annoying overuse scene! Such as, overuse of the song playing at the background scene, overuse of the long angle scenery scene, overuse of the arguing scene, overuse of the calling names scene, overuse of the staring scene, overuse of the walking scene, overuse of the searching scene, overuse of the driving scene, overuse of the vomiting scene, overuse of the drinking scene, overuse of the eating scene, and overuse of the flashbacks scene! Make the film unwatchable! All the action scene have blood, and things broken at certain point, but overall portray by sideways, just hear the gunshot sound, messy, and occur in too short of time! Make the film frustrated to watch! At the...

7/10: Female Assassin - Again
Thursday, September 23, 2021

Kate: There have been a few female assassin moves lately, Ava, Anna, now we have Kate. Kate (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) is an an experienced assassin who is manipulated by her mentor/handler Varrick (Woody Harrelson) into doing one last job, another common theme, as is the requirement for the assassin to be extremely attractive. Kate enters a world of smoke and mirrors when she is poisoned, trying to track down the person behind it in the 24 hours she has left to live. Tension is maintained throughout the film with some good fight scenes and the all seeing eye of surveillance tech. Betrayals, temporary alliances abound as the narrative progresses. Nothing really new here but it's a competent assassin thriller. Directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan from a screenplay by Umair Aleem. On Netflix. 7/10

7/10: You're a Terminator
Thursday, September 23, 2021

Kate (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) is a trained assassin killing the Yakuza in Tokyo. She misses on a shot because she was poisoned with Po-204. She has about a day to avenge her own poisoning. She ends up working with a teen (Miku Patricia Martineau) whose father she assassinated in opening scene.This is yet a another revenge assassin film. The plots are basically the same. Po-204 has a 3.5 hour half-life which means it must have been manufactured with 12-24 hours before it was ingested. The should have just gone with 210. Rather than attempt chelation to remove the poison, she opts to hobble around with sores and bleeding. Makes for good visual, but not very practical.Guide: F-word. Sex. No nudity
