But the common goal, money and protection of small and defenseless Emily, accepted by everyone, soon makes the group one of the most effective on the market.
A mixture of Tarantino and comedy.
Directed by Israeli Navot Papushado, already an author Big Bad Wolves – Bad Wolves, from the first scenes Gunpowder milkshake set up as an anthem to women’s empowerment. Between an atmosphere reminiscent of Tarantino’s cinema and, in particular, his heroines, and the solidarity between women of great strength, expressed through a compelling script.
The film, in fact, was born in the wake of the incredible success of the saga. John Wick which, in turn, gave rise to a series of “clones” with hired killers and spies, including female ones. Proof of this is, for example, Blonde atomicmovies with Charlize Theron which has unsurprisingly been defined as a “female John Wick”, although the script develops on a completely different basis.
It does not matter Gunpowder milkshake where, as in Blonde atomic, The female characters dominate the film and are much more active and determined than their male counterparts.. He is portrayed as ridiculous, lacking personality and easily “trampled” by women. Combining comedy, action and intimacy, the film’s blend of genres is almost complete and is a winning product. given the constant changes of pace, crazy editing and excellent cinematography.
The lively and cheerful film, perhaps, suffers from an excess of comedy, which in some episodes actually drags on too much compared to other endings of the story. Stylistically inventive and never trivial in solving women’s problems., Looks like a sequel is in the works also considering the “open” ending that ends the nearly two hours of the film.
