This film is not exactly horror and not exactly sci-fi, and suffers from an identity crisis that will likely alienate audiences.
A wacky, strange opus of vengeful violence that’ll please fans wanting to watch Liam Neeson do some good old fashioned killin’.
Referencing many other films in the genre doesn’t make for a very original experience.
Despite a fantastic turn from Gyllenhaal, the film is an unfunny, unsuccessful, elitist spoof about what happens when art and commerce collide, and it’s one that will be lost on most.

The film accurately portrays what it’s like to be a hardworking woman in a man’s world, and it does so with a goofy grace and playfulness that’s contagious.
