Kate (2021) S: Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Woody Harrelson - Netflix



There’s no time for mercy.
Watch KATE, on Netflix September 10.

After she’s poisoned, a ruthless criminal operative has less than 24 hours to exact revenge on her enemies and in the process forms an unexpected bond with the daughter of one of her past victims.

just the other week I watched 24 Hours to Live with Ethan Hawke that has a very similar storyline.

Iím a sucker for MEW and female lead action movies so Iíll check it out for sure, despite the lackluster premise.

I know the pink/blue neon aesthetic is all the rage for action movies nowadays but itís getting a little tired by now since it seems that EVERY action movie wants to look Ike the next John Wick. The car she was driving in that trailer looked ridiculous.

I feel like I just saw a movie with this plotline in the last few weeks but can't remember the name of it

Does she put on the Huntress costume in this one?

What a terrible poster.


Sure it is a "Netstinks" movie. Shocking.

Just finished this and as derivative as it is it was fun as hell. The 4K DV / Atmos was outstanding and it all took place in Japan, too. This is about as close to a "Huntress" film as we will ever get.

That fight in the restaurant was pretty cool. Beyond that... eh... I've already forgotten it.

Better than I expected which admittedly was not much. It might actually be worth a rewatch. When she stole the car and the movie got kind of comic-book-like for the chase scene I was tempted to tap out but in the end, it was pretty fun if not derivative. B-

I usually like women with long hair but, lately, I've been crushing on MEW. I'm not sure why.

This was awesome. Great Japan setting and stylized action.

Wayyyyy better than Gunpowder Milkshake

Re: Kate (2021) S: Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Woody Harrelson - Netflix

My parents of all people (my mid-70s mother is usually not into these type of films, but she is cool if my Dad starts up such a film and tends to just watch it with him...ultra violence/language in a film does not cause her to clutch pearls, which is kind-of awesome) were watching this, and they wanted to finish it up when my brother and I got home from seeing Shang Chi so I ended up watching the last 40 minutes while eating dinner. This is the type of film where it was pretty easy to get myself up to speed based on the actions of the characters in the last stretch of this film. It had a poignant but depressing ending. Some critics tore the film apart but I saw that it was a top 10 film for Netflix, so if it stays in the top 10 for more than 1 weekend I think Netflix will be happy.

Yeah this is #1 right now, that doesn't always happen with their movies so I'm sure they're pleased.

Also im impressed with how much the older generation has adopted Netflix. My 82 year old dad has it going constantly (mostly for their cartoons. Loves him some Transformers)

I may or may not have watched this at some point anyway, but I can say with 100% certainty that the only reason I watched this last weekend was because it starred Mary Elizabeth Winstead.

I had removed Gunpowder Milkshake from my mind completely until I read this. Hated that movie.

Doesn't that usually happen with their movies (maybe not always number 1 but definitely in the top list for pretty much everything they put out).

I didnít realize Mary Elizabeth Winstead is adult Lucy in the Die Hard sequels. Had to look at her resume on IMDb.

It was bugging me throughout the Kate movie about where I recognized her from (I didnít want to look at IMDb right away)

For me the "breakthrough" performance was season 3 of Fargo. To be fair, I always really liked her before that, but I thought she was clearly the best part of that season.
