Now, on to the bad part - cartoon villains of the Tarantino wannabe variety and a subplot about her mother and child that makes absolutely zero sense to the story line. Without giving away major plot lines to the story I will just say this, Everly withheld vital information from her own mother that any normal person would have shared to get them out of the line of fire. But Everly never thinks to do that, thereby putting her own family right in the middle of a massive bloodbath that no one could in reality walk away from. And you have to dig, I hunger for great films with female leads who defy the odds. This film has a great premise I've never really seen done before, so I was really rooting for this to be a great film. But yeah, that one little line that should have been said to get her mom and daughter to safety, that little bit of absolutely vital info and the entire reason Everly was doing what she was doing, not given? It pretty much ruined most of the movie for me.
And the ending is just a pretty blatant ripoff of The Professional without the hope and promise that that movie did so well.In fact, the movie ended with me not really believing that the threat Everly worked so hard to end, wasn't going to get a hold of her young daughter anyways.
So three stars for Salma Hayek, two stars off for everything else about this movie and minus an extra star for making me scream, "What about her daughter????" at the end of the film. That was a crappy thing to do.
What was surprising is how good Salma Hayek was in her role. Really believable in committing to the character.
Overall decent rental.
