Did we miss something on diversity?

I liked it!

I enjoyed Violet & Daisy and mainly watched for Alexis Bledel, her character really stood out and her acting was top notch. It really lets you get to know each character which I liked. It's a very violent story of two friends Violet (Alexis Bledel) and Daisy (Saoirse Ronan) who are also partners in crime. They are teenage assassins and while lusting over a dress in the Barbie Sunday fashion line but not having enough money to purchase the clothing, the two decide to take another job what they think will be an easy task. One day on the job, and dressed up as painters, the two emerge into an empty room and wait for their target to arrive but fall asleep on his couch. They awake to a troubled yet kind-hearted man sitting on a chair who actually wants to die, but he's nice and the two girls accept his offer of delicious home-baked cookies. Spending the day with him and unable to complete their duty, the more they get to know him the harder it is to get rid of him (Daisy being the main one to connect with him most). The two hit girls must figure out together how it will all end. The language is strong with plenty of f-words, sh*t, hell, [email protected] and more. Violence is very strong and gory with lots of blood shown, the two girls hop and dance on the dead bodies that squirt blood from their mouths and noses, bodies are thrown into a tub where a girl stands on top of them and takes a shower, lots of gun shootings and injuries seen, a girl fight, knife threatening. Sexual content is very mild and starts off with a teen telling a joke about a veterinarian having sex with animals, a girl takes a shower (no nudity) later she's walking around in a towel. Apparently one girl smokes when she says she needs a cigarette. Overall, very violent but good assassination flick. Not suitable for kids under 16!!!
