She’s great. Smashed with Aaron Paul good. Her bit in Death Proof. 10 Cloverfield, Scott Pilgrim, etc. She’s like a slightly cheaper version of Brie Larson. but, I might give this a try bc I do like her a lot.

Just finished this. Had a blast watching it. Great stylized violence & action. Mary Elizabeth Winstead was solid in the action and hand to hand combat scenes. The setting in Japan also really added to the movie.

The kid Jun Kunimura was actually pretty good for a newcomer. She was funny and had good moments with Kate. It had elements of Peppermint, Kill Bill and some of Beat Takeshi's old Yakuza action movies.

It was a fun B action thriller.

Nothing special which makes it any different or special from any of the other female assassin movies.

I thought it was filmed in Tokyo at night which was something that drawed me in but then I saw it was filmed in Hawaii and Thailand

Maybe they did that for Covid reasons.

Anna from last year was better.

I thought it was an entertaining timewaster. It was very predictable and derivative, but managed to get the job done with some solid perfs and action scenes.

The whole movie was almost shot like a really good cartoon. The effects during chases was laughable.

This was shot in Fall 2019. And it was shot partially in Japan. The pandemic had nothing to do with it.

Pretty much this. Watched it last night and was entertained, though ultimately it will probably be forgettable. It could have used some more character-building scenes with Kate, her handler (Harrelson), the girl, etc.
