Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. And Jennifer Garner's character is a massive fist of fury ready to knock out anything and everything in her path.
If you are a fan of ALIAS you have to see this movie now. In many ways it feels like the return of Sidney Bristow. If you like movies like JOHN WICK you need to see this movie now. I would love to see a battle royal between Jennifer and Keanu. It would be two hours of the best MMA fight you've ever seen.
For those of you thinking that this is the movie mom Jennifer Garner character with a chip on her shoulder, be warned. This movie is a hard R. The violence is brutal and constant. There are several scenes that are not suitable for people with weak stomachs.
The good news is that this isn't just a shallow action flick. The story is interesting, it's fast-paced, and there are some good twists that will keep you guessing. There are even a couple of moments where you may find yourself cheering out loud when certain people get their paybacks.
There are a couple of moments that I wish were in the movie, instead we were just told those things happened. It would have been much better to see them. Then there is a scene or two that are unrealistic or too convenient, but overall those are minor grievances.
If you can handle the violence, this is a film worth your movie-going dollars. It is a lot of fun, it is suspenseful, it is enjoyable, and it is satisfying.
