Gunpowder Milkshake [Movie Review]

Gunpowder Milkshake [Movie Review] | I read the review of Gunpowder Milkshake that it is all-ladies John Wick. Oh yeah. I have always love strong women as the star actors in movies. And I have been waiting for the movie to drop since I saw its trailers.

Fifteen years ago, Scarlet, an assassin, has to leave her daughter, Sam at a diner after a job had gone wrong. She managed to kill armed men that were there to capture her, before leaving the broken-hearted Sam at the diner, waiting for Scarlet's friend, Nathan to pick her up. Nathan is the HR where Scarlet is serving, The Firm.

In today's world, Sam is all grown up and also an assassin (you would've thought that she would grow on the opposite track after her mother's history). Nathan will give her instructions or a target, and she will get it done with no emotion.

A new job requires Sam to go after a man who steals from The Firm. She goes to the library to exchange her old weapons for new ones. It is an actual library, in the front and a weaponry store at the back. There, she meets Anna May, Madeline and Florence, her mother's friends who at first wanted to kill her but decided not to when they learn her identity.

Pursuing the thief brings her to the man's room in a hotel. A fight ensues between Sam and the man when she accidentally shoots the man in his stomach. Then the man's phone rings and from the call, Sam learns that the man steals the money to pay for his daughter's ransom. 

Feeling sorry about the daughter and feel kinda like her own story, she brings the man to see The Firm's doctor while she delivers the ransom. 

Nathan who learns about Sam's action sends three of his men to stop her and retrieve the money. The men were no match to Sam.

She proceeds with the ransom exchanging. She gets the girl, Emily. The kidnappers take the bag and run with it. Sam pursues but the kidnappers turn against one another, resulting in all of them killed and the money destroyed in a bomb blast. 

In the meanwhile, Nathan and The Firm learn that one of the henchmen Sam killed in an earlier job was the son of a powerful criminal overlord. To avoid getting in a war with the overlord, he discloses Sam's location to the overlord.

Sam and Emily go back to the clinic only to learn that Emily's father did not make it. Nathan has also instructed his three men to kill Sam in the clinic. The doctor assists the job by injecting Sam's arms with a serum that will render her arms useless. Instructing Emily to tape a scalpel and a gun to her hands, the duo fights their way out of the clinic.

She even lets Emily handles the car steering while she steps on the gas pedal in their runaway car.   

Sam receives a message from Nathan instructing her to go to a safe house as his goodbye gift to Sam. There, Sam meets Scarlet, who has been in hiding all this while, watching Sam's back in the dark. 

The overlord's men track them down and the trio escapes the house and returns to the library. The three librarians were angry about Scarlet's ghosting them all these years but quickly form a plan to escape the angry mob. 

Can five women and a little girl escape the wrath of a huge mob of angry men who come in with guns blazing?

MY REVIEW

Plot: 4.3/ 5.0 Ok. The plot is like any other John Wick movie. Wrongly accused assassin trying to stay alive. 

Is it John Wick equivalent? No.

Was it fun to watch? Yes, very much. 

Cast: 4.6/ 5.0 All these beautiful actors certainly delivered. But I wish we could more actions too from the three librarians too.

Will I watch it again: Yes, I will watch it after John Wick.

The pictures are taken from multiple sources on the Internet. Thank you.
