User Reviews

 
Ava quickly comes across as a standard crime thriller.

Ava is a new crime thriller movie directed by Tate Taylor, The Help director, The Girl on the Train and Ma.

Ava (Jessica Chastain) works as a hit man for a black ops organization. For this she travels the world to eliminate the highest members of hostile organizations. If Ava receives the wrong information during a mission, the mission will end wrong. For example, she is put on non-active by the black ops organization. Because of this, Ava withdraws from family and tries to resume her personal life. When she learns that her boss has planned an attack on her for the mistake she made on her last mission, she must now protect herself from a loved one from the black ops organization.

This movie has a standard story for a crime thriller. For those familiar with crime thrillers, the film can quickly come across as familiar and somewhat predictable. The film is completely predictable when you have seen the trailer, because it actually shows the entire film. To enjoy the movie a little more, you better try to avoid the trailer.

Jessica Chastain does a good job in the lead role of the film, but she has acted better in other, better films. Colin Farrell also made them acting as the boss of the black ops organization. His character does not really come across as a dangerous threat to the hero of the story and so there is no real extra tension in the film.
