New York Post's Sara Stewart says Charlize is totally a badass, giving the film 3 stars for kicking ass.
How do we know Charlize Theron’s secret-agent character is a stone cold killer? Because this icy blonde bathes in tubs full of ice cubes while drinking Stoli on ice. That’s the subtlety level here, and I am A-OK with it. Because Theron makes one hell of a superspy, and it’s high time she got her “John Wick” moment.
Seattle Times' Moira MacDonald disagrees, arguing the plot falls short. She only gave the movie 2 and a half stars.
It’s less fun to follow the fairly incoherent plot: Leitch, a former stunt coordinator, is no storyteller, though he’s a dab hand with an action sequence.While it's still an enjoyable novelty to spend time during an action movie wondering where I could buy the hero's boots, it's no substitute for a good story.
