I love a good revenge flick but although satisfying, I wasn’t sold on this one. Probably why I watched it for free. There are a lot of things to like about this film. The best part about it is that, somehow, you are fascinated by the four boys but at the same time you are eagerly waiting for them to die. I think they did a fantastic job casting the males and I really enjoyed each of their unique stories and characters. Even though I gave it a lower score, the movie was fast-paced and entertaining. I mean, I wasn’t bored. I also really appreciated the lack of rape that I thought was going to be inevitable. On the other hand, it was holeyer than Swiss cheese. You can’t not have a million questions during and after watching the movie. And the ending was satisfying but a little dull. Our lead, Abigail Breslin, is gorgeous, but unfortunately, definitely not the right person for the bad-ass ninja role and therefore, the believability just wasn’t present. And oh yeah, don’t watch the trailer. It’s like watching a summary of the entire movie. Here’s all you need to know: four high school gentlemen hunt and kill blonde girls, until an assassin in a prom dress comes along and turns the tables. The big problem with this thriller is that you are told about the girl’s background at the very beginning of the film and there is absolutely no surprise factors.
