REVIEW: Kate

STARRING: Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Woody Harrelson, Miku Martineau, Michiel Huisman, Tadanobu Asano, Jun Kunimura, Miyavi, and Kazuya Tanabe

Directed By: Cedric Nicolas-Troyan 

Netflix’s new ulta-violent assassin-revenge thriller is a bloody ballet of bullets, knives and fisticuffs with Mary Elizabeth Winstead giving her best performance to date and is simply bad ass while sympatheic at the same time. Produced by action maestro David Leitch and the 87Eleven Action Design Team, this is one high powered actioner that showcases some of the most brutal and bloody action sequences this year. Check out my full Action Fix video review below!

“Meticulous and preternaturally skilled, Kate is the perfect specimen of a finely tuned assassin at the height of her game,” reads the official synopsis. “But when she uncharacteristically blows an assignment targeting a member of the yakuza in Tokyo, she quickly discovers she’s been poisoned, a brutally slow execution that gives her less than 24 hours to exact revenge on her killers. As her body swiftly deteriorates, Kate forms an unlikely bond with the teenage daughter of one of her past victims.”

Helmed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan from a script written by Umair Aleem, the film also stars Woody Harrelson, Miku Martineau, Michiel Huisman, Tadanobu Asano, Jun Kunimura, Miyavi, and Kazuya Tanabe. 

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Verdict: 3.5 Out Of 5 Stars
