Plot Summary
A group of soldiers-for-hire take on a job that is not what it seems, but they have secrets of their own
Star #2
Streaming exclusively on Netflix.

I knew nothing about this film when I started watching it. For the first three minutes I thought it was going to be another in a long line of typical action flicks. And then something happened. Something amazing and unique. Something that made me sit up and say, "Yes! I love it, and I need that explained now!"

This film is filled with twists, layers of complexity, difficult decisions, regret, and nefarious plans built to serve the greater good. It is so much more than an action flick, but I don't want to say what it is because I want to to be surprised like I was.

Charlize Theron is wonderful in the lead role. She kick's butt like no other, but she also has the weight and responsibility of caring for others while she has to push away the demons in her own head. The rest of the cast fills in around her perfectly. Every character brings something unique and special to the story.

If you skipped over this one thinking it was just another shoot-'em-up action flick, you should pull it up and watch at least the first 10 minutes. I have a feeling you'll be hooked.
