Lots of reviews, people feel something about this movie to bother writing in. Outrage or adoration but not look-warm.
Well, I've never played a video game as I'm too old so I don't recognise anything in this movie from video games.
It wasn't what I expected from the trailers. I thought it would be girl power kicking ass, which is pleasant at the time. At one point it reminded me of Charlies Angels,'oh, the girls go off on a mission, & indeed kick ass'. I did feel frustrated however when I thought, we've had 2 missions & have another 3 to go - this is getting a bit tedious. But then I just looked at the beautiful strange sepia landscapes & enjoyed that.
I could almost explode with frustration at one point, I just wish the girls had kneed the guys where it hurts and done them irreparable damage, preferably killed them. The abuse of power was so outrageous & vicious & all the lying crap,'I'm doing this for you, we're in this together,,,blah blah' This reminds me of lots of corrupt people in power, I guess that's why it's so frustrating -- we've all had this to some extent, unless of course we are the one doling it out. I was pondering during the film if it was about corrupt age and power against youth, or men against women - I hear that there are thousands of women and children being trafficked as sex slaves at the moment. But then it felt like our corrupt institutions (Britain) which grind us down & constantly eat away at our rights as fat bankers and politicians smile and tell us it's for our own good they have to raise taxes and put people out of work.
So I think that this film actually took something very unpalatable & just plain nasty (the way we allow ourselves to be bullied by the government), that no one really wants to look at apart from a few outspoken groups - and they dressed it up with beautiful actresses, fab music and amazing visuals, so that we could swallow this bitter pill. Who the hell wants to watch some whinging documentary about corruption in high places: we all know it exists, we just feel powerless to do anything about it.
