Enjoyable ride, fresh faces
2 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

This was a thoroughly enjoyable ride from a fresh director and features great performances from three promising young actresses.

Hailee Steinfeld continues to show her versatility as Megan, a trained assassin who just wants to be a normal teenager. Dove Cameron gives a strong performance as the daughter of the host family. I hope to see her in many more movies. Sophie Turner plays Megan's nemesis and has less scenes, but shines in the ones she's in, especially in the end. I'm very much looking forward to seeing her in the title role of X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

The guys in this flick are mostly ornaments. Good old Samuel L. J. and Jessica Alba also play second fiddle here to the youngsters.

Definitely worth a watch. Some action, some high school drama, very much fun. Looking out for more from director Kyle Newman.
