Trivia

Andy calls herself Andromache of Scythia. This matches the legend of a queen of the Amazons, sometimes identified with Scythians.

There are two other noted women of that name - the wife of Hector and a victim of the Minotaur. See more »

Goofs

Spoiler: Towards the end of the movie, when Andy and Nile kill Merrick, Andy swings her blade into the middle of Merrick's neck where his shirt's collar ends. In the next two shots, the blade is clearly lodged into his collarbone instead of his neck. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Andy: [narrating] I've been here before. Over and over again. And each time the same question. Is this it? Will this time be the one? And each time the same answer. And I'm just so tired of it.

User Reviews

 
Great potential. Ultimately mediocre
10 July 2020 | by srdikanoSee all my reviews

I really wanted to like this film. It's got a simple but fun premise and it's got Charlize Theron, who's a fantastic actress. But the film is just marred by plot holes, cliched characters, tacky dialogues and hands down the most inadequate music possible for this film.

It's still a passable action film if you have absolutely nothing else to watch.
