Ava – Action
Category – Movie
Content – A female assassin that has problems with drugs, alcohol, her family and asking her victims “what they did to deserve to die”. It’s a little different concept, but not much of a stretch for another assassin movie. We follow Ava on her kills and her return to Boston to see her family after being gone for eight years. Happiness is not the adjective I would use to describe her homecoming; although, it seems to smooth out towards the end. Unfortunately, this is just another typical assassin movie, where the female assassin becomes the target and must fight off everyone who comes in her path. Will she survive? Or does this film take a turn and see our lead meet a fatal ending? You’ll have to watch to find out! This scores a 6 out of 10.
Acting – The good thing about this action packed movie is the lead, Jessica Chastain. Whether she is fighting villains or Pennywise, Jessica does this with grace and ease. She is truly mesmerizing to watch in every role she accepts. She has some killer stunt and fight scenes in this one (her stunt performer is great too). John Malkovich is also in the movie, anything with him in it is cool to watch. His voice is so recognizable, you know it is him instantly. Other notable names in the movie are Common, Geena Davis, Colin Farrell and Diana Silvers. All do a good job, just wish there was something more “unique” about the script that they had to work with. Score is 8 out of 10.
Duration – 1 hr 36 min. Quick and fast paced, but you expect that from a high energy assassin film, right? It definitely fits with the length. This gets a 8 out of 10.
TOTAL INDEX for Ava – 22 out of 30
Recommended Watch – Look, this is a high action assassin film, take it for what it is. This is the fun, high energy Friday night popcorn and beer movie.
