Kate Review: Mary Elizabeth Winstead Goes Savage in Underwhelming Action Thriller

A poisoned assassin (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) decimates the Yakuza in Kate. Also starring Woody Harrelson and Miku Martineau.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead stands out Yakuza heads like bubble cover in an action-packed, however underwhelming thriller. Kate has an exclusive assassin raking via arranged criminal activity baddies in Tokyo. She's been irreversibly infected, has twenty-four hrs to live, as well as intends to supply some significant revenge in her subsiding minutes. Blades, blood, as well as bullets fly virtually continuously throughout the movie. Pure activity addicts will absolutely obtain a repair. Rote sustaining personalities as well as a glaringly apparent story take the warm from the firepower. Frankly, I additionally got ill of the Japanese pop rock soundtrack. It fits the story, however ends up being exhausting if you're not a follower of the style.

Kate (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), as well as her coach, Varrick (Woody Harrelson) also known as “V”, established to snipe a high worth target in Osaka. When the minute shows up to fire, a modification of scenario offers Kate a minor time out. Her training takes control of as well as she finishes the job. Six months later on in Tokyo, Kate is still haunted by her activities. She informs V that the work has actually shed its gloss. Kate prepares to retire after her following important task.

The hit does not go as prepared. Kate ends up being dizzy. Nauseous as well as shivering, she hardly gets away. Kate awakens in a health center with unfortunate information. She has actually been fatally infected. The physicians provide her a day at finest. Kate does not take her medical diagnosis relaxing. Amped up on energizers, she reduces a swath via the Japanese abyss to discover her awesome. She's stunned to uncover the adolescent lady, Ani (Miku Martineau) from that eventful day, involved in a perilous conspiracy theory.

We've seen plenty of movies of the resolute women personnel looking for retribution. Kate does not supply anything brand-new. That claimed, it is a watchable activity movie. Mary Elizabeth Winstead takes place a stabbing as well as cutting frenzy. Appendages are diced like tomatoes under her furor. She takes quite a beating on her quest. Her body breaks down from cuts, punches, and effects of the poisoning. Winstead has screen presence and it's evident. She is a capable action heroine. My issues lie with the cardboard supporting characters.

Kate's has two relationships that fuel the story. V is her teacher, father, and best friend; who has raised her from childhood. Ani worships Kate for her abilities, beauty, and shoot-first attitude. Both of these subplots are too vanilla. There's no mystery whatsoever to their development, or realistic chemistry with the protagonist. They come off as stage props. The dramatic scenes are forced and unbelievable. The supporting cast needed more exposition to be meaningful. Woody Harrelson is underused here.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead pops Yakuza skulls like bubble wrap in an action-packed, but underwhelming thriller. Kate has an elite assassin plowing through organized crime baddies in Tokyo. She's been irreversibly poisoned, has twenty-four hours to live, and wants to deliver some serious vengeance in her waning moments. Blades, blood, and bullets fly nearly nonstop throughout the film. Pure action junkies will definitely get a fix. Rote supporting characters and a glaringly obvious plot take the heat from the firepower. Frankly, I also got sick of the Japanese pop rock soundtrack. It fits the narrative, but becomes tiresome if you're not a fan of the genre.

Kate (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), and her mentor, Varrick (Woody Harrelson) aka “V”, set up to snipe a high value target in Osaka. When the moment arrives to shoot, a change of circumstance gives Kate a slight pause. Her training takes over and she completes the task. Six months later in Tokyo, Kate is still haunted by her actions. She tells V that the job has lost its luster. Kate plans to retire after her next critical assignment.

Kate will appeal to hardcore action fans. It's insanely violent with better than average fight choreography. Normally that would suffice, but I honestly wanted more from these characters. The story falls far short in its execution. Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Woody Harrelson raise expectations with their level of talent. Kate just doesn't live up that high standard. Kate is a production of 87North and Screen Arcade. It will premiere exclusively September 10th on Netflix.

Make no mistake, the bad guys are definitely going to know she was here.
