John Wickia fortunately, fewer monkey films have appeared than might have been expected. This year’s Wick-style teasers premiered in the United States as early as spring Bob Odenkirkin starred Nobodyaction film has not even reached Finland yet, even though it has already been published behind the scenes on Blu-ray. Nobody may not have celebrated with originality, but it was still really great to do.

Yesterday on Wednesday, July 14, Netflix premiered Gunpowder Milkshake is something completely different. The numbingly boring copy of Wick tries to be as cool as possible, but mostly causes sympathy.

Gunpowder Milkshake director-screenwriter Navot Papushadon the main and only idea has been to make an action film starring only women. The protagonists of the Mukarankka mound could even be terrestrial, orthodox monks or space creatures, but the end result would still be an unbearably generic hood. Gunpowder Milkshake cannot be called a feminist film, although it may itself imagine itself to be one.

The film, of course, features both young and old assassins, criminal organizations, a secret society, and a mystical organization that spans almost the entire world. The main part is Karen Gillanin presented by Sam, a second-generation professional listener on the payroll of The Firm Lafka.

The mother of Scarlet (Lena Headey) was to put the gang out of the cold, but he has been missing for 15 years. Nathan (Paul Giamatti), which also tells who, where and when Sam needs to be killed. Naturally, Firma and Nathan may not be good, and soon the killer will be followed by the criminal organization and its countless minions. In addition, the young daughter of the most recent victim, Emily (Chloe Coleman).

Sam is an insensitive coward who slams his dinner in front of the TV and at the same time sews stitches on his arm, but since his own mother left him, the murderer himself cannot reject the innocent little girl. Oh tears anyway, but luckily the brat can be put into extreme violent scenes, because that’s what’s guaranteed to be fun.

In addition to John Wick, the director has also looked at examples Quentin Tarantino Kill Bill -leffat. However, the mere endless splashes of blood, stylized action and images glowing in neon colors cannot be put together into a functional work, as even a small touch of originality should be involved in violent entertainment. Mere stealing from the better is just tiring, and the more the film tries to be cool, the more blunt it becomes.

The film thinks it’s funny because its scenes of violence are done with the tongue in the cheek. The endless splashes of digital blood look miserable, and there is little praise in most combat choreographies. Gunpowder Milkshake isn’t the worst thing to get into a modern film, because the action even makes something clear, at least for a while. The battle scenes are still weird stumps.

Even in the trailer, a snippet of the unbearably long slow-motion camera drive at the end of the movie flashes. During that time, performing older professional killers Angela Bassettia, Carla Guginoa and Michelle Yeohia it is a pity first. However, the excessively stylized action scene lasts so long that for the sake of money alone, the veteran actors involved in this mosquito also start to get annoyed.

A few days after watching the movie, it only comes to mind as one entertaining scene. In it, Sam’s hands are paralyzed, but he continues to fight with his weapons taped to his paws.

Despite the endless action, Gunpowder Milkshake is a really boring movie. Making good brainless violence entertainment seems damn awkward these days.


“Gunpowder Milkshake feels like an overly long pilot period for a TV series. Netflix is ​​clearly trying to create a new operational movie franchise, as the sequel has already been confirmed. ”
