Though it would be easy to write this off as a female-centric version of ‘John Wick’, there’s actually quite a bit more going on. Karen Gillan stars as a young woman thrust into the assassin business by her mother (Lena Headey). When the crap hits the fan, mom’s old gang (Carlo Gugino, Angela Bassett, Michelle Yeoh) needs to regroup to dispatch of all the bad guys in the world. It’s (very) bloody and (very) violent and (very) messy, but it’s also a visual stunner and Gillan anchors the proceedings with a solid performance.

3/5 stars
