Tween girls esp will love this, vastly underrated, unfairly maligned, it was GREAT
Went in with the lowest expectation, going initially because our daughters wanted to go. Felt dragged to have to go to it and left super pleasantly surprised and found the movie perfectly entertaining. The cast was winning, the characters were well-drawn --for an action movie, and I didn't find the PC, feminist agenda unnatural---it felt authentic and earned. The plotting was a bit predictable to completely nutty and devolving by the end, but only after we watched the whole thing did it unravel for me thinking back on it. No more than any other action movie of its ilk. It was well-written. The baddies made no sense though. I still don't care. Way to go Elizabeth Banks, who wrote this(as well as produced, directed and acted in the movie). Why they put one of the leading women into a dog collar at the end though, that was super unnecessary and perplexing. And the scene in the middle, a fight scene in a-- quarry?, there's an especially ghastly death.
