Ava Movie Review & Comments

Your final score of 4 does not seem to match your scathing words for this film. Surely it should be lower than that? If it’s worse than Anna it truly is worth avoiding!

Agree with the review Cas. Movie should never have happened. Also, was it just me or did Jessica look out of shape and slightly unconvincing in the fight scenes. Her jogging style in particular was awful.

TBH I did quite like the last 10 mins.

Watched it the other night.
It's okay.

John M steals the film for me.....

7/10.

Storyline we have seen before tho.

Thanks for the Review, Cas. & thanks for the "complete film" trailer info. Now I can avoid it. What a waste of an excellent cast!
I Guess this could also be the end of any Female Assasin Movie whose name is also the Movie title & begins with the letter "A".

Just watched it on Netflix, I agree with the review that the ending felt rushed. It's a wannabe John Wick movie, I'd award it a participation award for trying. Certainly kept me entertained for 90mins. Hope there's more to come!

Watched it last night and yeh, felt rushed.

5.5/10.

JC really should stick to the better roles/scripts. She’s too good for trash like this.

I really wish I read this review beforehand. I seldom watch movies "blind" these days but assumed that a Jessica Chastain vehicle, coupled with it being the no.1 title on Netflix, would have been a decent way to spend a Friday evening.

How wrong I was, and I've just checked the date of this review - I've only myself to blame. I say this as someone who adores action films, but this is probably the worst title I've seen this year. The John Wick-wannabe comments are fair and I wasn't entirely convinced of Chastain as an action star.

Also - what was going on with Farrell's tache?

better than i thought it was going to be. Jessica wasn't as convincing in the fights but it was an interesting take on the genre, JM and CF were cracking as usual.

Looks like my Christmas turkey has arrived early! What an atrocious movie. How many subplots does a movie like this need!?? Most of the “potentially interesting” story elements are glossed over in the opening credits. What do we get....

Assassin falling out with her Mum because of some silly backstory”
Assassin helping sisters boyfriend’s gambling debt
Assassin making moves on sisters boyfriend
Assassin going to AA meetings for her alcoholism
Assassin fixing mums tv

honestly it was just so boring! Lol I agree with a lot of the review comments but it’s a 1/10 for me.

Ava, Anna, Hanna, Salt & Peppermint, Atomic Sparrow, Red Widow- once you've seen one you've seen 'em all :laugh:.
Is that a new Walkers crisp flavour?

Watched this last night and have to agree with Cas review.
I'd forgot he rated it 4 as I wouldn't have bothered watching it!

It was just one assassin movie cliché after another.

Family issues - check
Addiction issues - check
Falls off the wagon in the movie - check
Group that the assassin belongs to wants to kill said assassin - check
Assassin has to battle with head assassin to survive - check

It really should have been so much better but was just dire. They clearly wanted a sequel too based on the final scenes.

Some completely wasted stars in this film. What was Colin Farrell's character supposed to be? Nonsense.

Oddly enough I watched this the other night as well. Think I can go with a 6, but then I am in love with Jessica Chastain.

Overall it should have been far better. Felt like it was rushed from start to finish, and like Greg said the writer must have had his cliché book to hand when coming up with the story. Bad ending as well.

I highly doubt there will be a sequel.

Ava, It Chapter 2, X-Men. What a hat-trick of Turkeys. I think Jess should start concentrating on scripts more and $$$ less.

ZD30 UHD for me tonight. :cool: That should totally banish any last bit of memory I have of Ava :D

The amount of folks that want other people to tell them if they will enjoy a movie or not. For the record I thought it okay. Nothing we haven't seen before but reasonably well made and diverting enough to pass an hour or two. But the bottom line is watch it yourself and make up your own mind.

Obviously. Not sure what your post is getting at.
