I was a little skeptical at first about this movie and then I watched it and realized that it wasn't half bad! It had all of the excessive blood like Tarantino always delivers and the revenge aspect of The Professional. I would recommend it to those that like those two things! Oh! I forgot to mention that Selma Hayek is in it! It does have its cheesy moments in it and the filmmaker puts you right in the middle of the story at the very beginning.
This is definitely not Salma Hayek's best but its pretty good for a Friday night and a glass of wine. Or whatever.. there's action from start to finish. A very simple plot and decent acting. Salma at her funniest. I don't think it was supposed to be a comedy. Or maybe it was...Oh well. check it out. its worth the price of a discount video...
I wrongly assumed this flick of casting another pretty face pushed beyond their acting ability. I was wrong! This flick is more than just Girl Power, it's action-packed. It reminds me of the Raid movies with so much action and blood that you can't step away for popcorn or to make a bathroom run (although I watched it for the first time on BluRay so I could have paused it, but why?). Good from beginning to end.
Selma Hayek is sexy and deadly in Everly a straight to video release. This movie is made in the image of Suckerpunch, and just about every Quentin Tarantino movie to date. The action is surprising and fun, it moves the story along and has you ending up cheering on Everly (Selma Hayek) as she fight for her freedom and to save her daughter continues. A fun, action-packed movie that won't disappoint.
Movie is ok as an action movie. It does not do too much of a backstory on the lead character or explains her skills and knowledge with guns. I figured she has previous history with those type of skills. There are some slow moments but it does get right into the action. I also felt the movie was unrealistic at times but I still enjoyed it.
From the start to the end. None stop action. Salma Hayek is nice to look at. The plot seems a little like a comic book from time to time. But still a good action movie. And there maybe even a sequel. Not for young children.
Can Salma Hayek be the next female Jason Statham in a Kill Bill type sceanrio? - actually ....almost....a pretty bizzare world and overall premise - but for non stop action it was a rollercoaster ride of non stop action - adults only please - this is not for kids
