But there are much worse things to mimic, and while there are parallels, this also has a great deal to set it apart. First off, there’s that bonkers cast fronted by Karen Gillan, but that includes Lena Headey, Michelle Yeoh, Angela Bassett, Carla Gugino, Paul Giamatti, and more. Director Navot Papushado also helmed Big Bad Wolves, which you should see if you haven’t. And the whole things looks and sounds like a blast.
Here’s a synopsis:
Sam (KAREN GILLAN) was only 12 years old when her mother Scarlet (LENA HEADEY), an elite assassin, was forced to abandon her. Sam was raised by The Firm, the ruthless crime syndicate her mother worked for. Now, 15 years later, Sam has followed in her mother’s footsteps and grown into a fierce hit-woman.
But when a high-risk job goes wrong, Sam must choose between serving The Firm and protecting the life of an innocent 8-year-old girl - Emily (CHLOE COLEMAN). With a target on her back, Sam has only one chance to survive: Reunite with her mother and her lethal associates, The Librarians (MICHELLE YEOH, ANGELA BASSETT and CARLA GUGINO).
These three generations of women must now learn to trust each other, stand up to The Firm and their army of henchmen, and raise hell against those who could take everything from them.
