Sweet Girl

Director: Brian Andrew Mendoza
Year Released: 2021
Rating: 0.0

When gruff Ray Cooper (Jason Momoa) finds out that the death of his wife Amanda (Adria Arjona) to cancer could have been prevented because the drug to treat her condition got pulled by the company BioPrime (headed by Justin Bartha) - oh, Big Pharma and all that greed - he, along with his daughter Rachel (Isabela Merced), go on a rampage to get answers, all while being tracked by hit men.  For two-thirds of it, it's a Steven Seagal-esque action movie full of head-scratching choices and iffy dialogue but then in the last third, in what can only be described as insane and laughable, it literally yanks the rug from under itself to reveal that Momoa's character was dead the whole time and that actual trained assassins were being taken out by a teenage girl who weighs maybe ninety-five pounds if she's wearing a backpack filled with cement.  I'm all about grrl power and always will be, but unless Merced's vengeful lady has superpowers, none of this is even remotely possible.  Sorry for the truth, etc.
