Sweet Girl [Movie Review]

Sweet Girl [Movie Review] | When I see Jason Momoa in the poster, I quickly clicked on the movie and watched it. Why?

Yeah. It's because he is the Aquaman. I wanna see if he is can act as a normal human being and not a superhuman. Haha.

Ray and her wife, Amanda lives a happy life with their daughter, Rachel - exploring the country and everything. All that stops when Amanda falls ill with a rare form of cancer. 

Always feeling positive, Ray mortgage everything they have for Amanda's treatment. When an experimental drug that was supposedly has the potential to save Amanda's life was pulled from the market by BioPrime, Ray was mad. His anger heightens when Amanda finally succumb to her illness. 

Six months later, a journalist, Martin, tells him that he has evidence of criminal activity committed by BioPrime that led to the experimental drug being delayed. But Martin was killed in a train while sharing the details with Ray. Ray wrestles a bit with the killer, and Rachel who follows her father from far, also gets in the fight. The killer manages to stab Ray and knock Rachel unconscious, leaving the two of them on the platform for dead.

Two years later, Ray and Rachel has become dangerously obsessive in tracking Simon Keeley's movement. Simon is the CEO of BioPrime and Ray holds Simon responsible for his wife's death. Ray infiltrate BioPrime's charity auction so that he could interrogate Simon but accidentally killed him during a fight. 

The duo starts on their fugitive journey. Rachel, not agreeing to his father's method, contacts FBI Agent Sarah and urges her to look into BioPrime and their hidden criminal activities. The next day, while they were sleeping in a motel on their fugitive journey, two mercenaries break into their motel and try to kill them. Ray manages to out best the duo. 

Now, they are wanted by FBI and an unknown entity (presumably BioPrime) that obviously wants them dead. And then the train killer appears as they are nearing the truth. The killer tells the duo that he was sent by Congresswoman Diana Morgan to tie all loose ends, and the duo are the remaining ends.

What will the duo do?

MY REVIEW

Plot: 4.0/ 5.0 The plot was predictable - at the first glance. Then towards the end, you'll gasp! 

I know I did. The pace was a bit slow at the first quarter of the movie. Then it starts pacing faster and faster. 

You'll love to hate the twist!

Cast: 4.6/ 5.0 Yes, Jason can play a normal human being  too. Isabel was great!

Will I watch it again: I don't mind watching it again.

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

  11. Aquaman berlakon. Mesti tengok. Best kan lakonan dia. Tak expect dia akan berlakon cerita mcm ni. Watak fatherhood dia memang strong. Pastu fighting skill dia nampak cool je. Bab cerita ni slow pun ya. Tapi sebab Jason Momoa. Takpe slow. Tengok muka dia pepuas. Haha.
