It only took 26 years but we finally got 'Die Hard in a room.' The cinematic universe of "Everly" seems to split the difference between "Kill Bill" and "Big Trouble in Little China." The Tarantino-isms can grate on more than one occasion, but director Joe Lynch displays a flair for demented, Takashi Miike-esque action, frequently utilizing long takes and practical effects. This is the definition of a solid Netflixer.
WTF!!! I though Salma was a pretty decent actress but in this train wreck she stinks. I feel sorry for her signing up for this shit. I hope she got a pretty penny for her troubles. As action movies go this was pretty terrible on all counts. The idea of keeping the story in one place is kinda cool but that's about the only good thing here. After about 20 minutes this got really tiring and I barely finished it. Crap!!!
Salma Hayeks cleavage and curves were in a big part in this movie. They played probably a bigger role than she did as an actress. It was kind of unnerving to be honest. Thank goodness there was some shooting to distract me. Anyway, it's not a good movie, but it wasn't all boring either. If you like watching boob gaps and big guns. She is definitely in a good shape.
2 - Insufferable pseudo-grindhouse trash that tries to channel the 80s-obsequious idiosyncrasies of the likes of Tarantino and Rodriguez, and only manages to prove how bloodless the modern action film scene generally is. No amount of "grrrrrrl powuh" could have salvaged this shit from the jaws of inadequacy.
This is a ridiculous action film where, as usual, the story takes a backseat to the violence. I usually hate films like this, but I have to give it credit for giving us such a bad-ass woman for a change. Between Salma Hayek being a babe and the unbelievable body count, it was pretty entertaining, albeit really stupid.
