Rapace is Fierce
19 January 2019 | by gensbillSee all my reviews

I like Noomi Rapace and have seen and enjoyed most of her movies, at least the ones after the "Girl With..." series. I find her compelling. Although not traditionally beautiful, she has presence with a kind of rough grace that presents as extremely attractive and she is also one of the few women who can pull off high-action movies. If I see she is in something, I watch it, and have yet to be disappointed. Without her in the lead, I probably wouldn't have watched this,

When I saw Sophie Nélisse I couldn't figure out where I had seen her before until I realized she was Liesal and Gilly Hopkins.

The acting was okay; Nelisse an Rapace were effective in their roles. The setting and scenery were fine. The action was well done with only a few weapon mistakes. Overall, I enjoyed the film - it won't win awards but it's better than most action/buddy movies.

Very watchable, if only for Noomi, who is always good.
