1/10: A bit twisting at the end, but overall full of boring conversation, and annoying overuse scene! Should have done better
Monday, August 23, 2021

This film start with a bunch of cops chasing a man "Ray", and he jump into the water scene! As turnout, this film is about a daughter "Rachel" need to take revenge on a senator candidate "Diana", who responsible for the death of her parents! Entire film full of boring conversation, and annoying overuse scene! Such as, overuse of the walking scene, overuse of the searching scene, overuse of the staring scene, overuse of the arguing scene, overuse of the calling names scene, overuse of the lying down scene, overuse of the flashbacks scene, overuse of the watching TV scene, overuse of the talking with the phone scene, overuse of the changing camera angle scene, overuse of the narration scene, overuse of the song playing at the background scene, overuse of the singing scene, and overuse of the driving scene! Make the film unwatchable! All the action scene have blood, things broken, and explosion at certain point, but overall quite...

5/10: Classic revenge flick, with a dumb twist
Monday, August 30, 2021

Two thirds of the film you are going to ask yourself two questions: 1. Why is the movie called Sweet Girl when it is all about Jason Momoa? And 2. How can that little adolescent turd not be wrecked with guilt for her stupidity and instead is sanctimonious and judgemental with her father and continues to never listen to anything he says? The twist provides the answer to both and it's pretty satisfying, but it works for about a second before you realize that it invalidates most of all the other things that happened until then. Then comes the ending, which is really weak.Maybe if I could have been invested in any of the characters beyond a generic sob story and a generic villain that anyone hates, I would have enjoyed it more. There is no positive to watching the film, the action scenes are generic, the story is generic, the characters are generic. Other than the twist...

2/10: Stupid Twist Ruins Already Stupid Movie
Thursday, August 26, 2021

I was just going to write about star Jason Momoa's blathering bookending voiceover narration, the repetitive time jumping early on, the formulaic and cliché-ridden conspiratorial action-revenge script, how unbelievable it is that a pharmaceuticals CEO would take questions from the public on a TV broadcast, and how the daughter is an annoying and unnecessary tag-along character, but then "Sweet Girl" turns out to be made by wannabe M. Night Shyamalan hacks who add a twist to the otherwise generic variation of "The Fugitive" (1993), and it's a doozy of utter stupidity. It literally adds nothing but a lot of otherwise needless padding to the proceedings to foreshadow it. The movie could've been cut in half without it, and it would've been much better for it. I mean, there'd still be nothing of value here, but it'd be shorter. Really, 110 minutes of this mundane nonsense! What a complete waste of time

5/10: Momoa does a Neeson
Wednesday, August 25, 2021

Ray Cooper (Jason Momoa) is devastated from his wife's cancer death after greedy Pharma executive Simon Keeley (Justin Bartha) withdraws an experimental life-saving drug. Ray vows revenge on national TV. He is contacted by an investigative reporter. His daughter Rachel (Isabela Merced) follows him to the meeting. The reporter is killed by an assassin. Ray and Rachel are both terribly hurt in the incident.I'm fine with the last act. In fact, that adds a little spice to a generally bland Neeson-like script. I hated the Home Alone feel of the confrontations. If the hitman brings a gun, we bring a knife. If the hitman brings a knife, we bring a lamp. It gets a bit annoying. The ending helps a little with that but it still would be better if he simply turns into a cold-blooded killer. Nevertheless, this feels like a script from the Neeson rejects pile. Momoa will have to do better...

8/10: It wasn't supposed to end this way
Wednesday, August 25, 2021

The film opens with Aquaman talking the Jason Bourne jump off of a building. We then go back in time. Ray Cooper (Jason Momoa) and his daughter Rachel (Isabela Merced) are with their mother when she dies from cancer. The miracle drug that could save her was suddenly pulled from the market by Bioprime who spiked it. Ray meets a reporter who claims he has evidence it was all a scam involving all kinds of people and off shore accounts. After the reporter is stabbed right in front of him, Ray decides he wants answers. This leads to a trail of blood as Ray and his daughter are both fighters and are being hunted.I liked the twist at the end, although I think it might have made a better film without it.Guide: F-word. No sex or nudity
