Synopsis

In the 1970s, the Hell's Kitchen wives—Kathy Brennan (Melissa McCarthy), Ruby O'Carroll (Tiffany Haddish) and Claire Walsh (Elisabeth Moss)—of three New York gangsters Jimmy Brennan (Brian d'Arcy James), Kevin O'Carroll (James Badge Dale) and Rob Walsh (Jeremy Bobb), continue to operate their husbands' rackets after the men are sent to prison by the FBI.

The ladies take the Irish mafia's matters into their own hands—and to everyone's surprise, they turn out to be adept at running the rackets—even when it comes to taking out the competition.

Based on the Vertigo comic book series from DC Entertainment.

  • 4 stars "Enjoyed the action and women empowerment!"
  • 4 stars "Critics were wrong on this one. It is really good. There is a lot of violence, but given the subject that was not unexpected. The movie suggests that economic necessity, impetus, gumption and cold-blooded might overshadow gender in organized crime. More controversially, the movie emphasized the rolls of public support by local people and organizations in favoring one protection racket over another."
  • 5 stars "Violent & gory but very powerful. Uplifting to see such power emerge out of mistreated women. I loved the dialogue! Elisabeth Moss is a relatively new, and rising star --- so very talented. She is going to go places fast in the realm of acting, right up there with Meryl Streep -- there is not a role she is not capable of. I love her! Melissa McArthy was terrific in her first very sombre, serious role of acting. Didn't know she'd be capable of it but she was superb & pulled it off perfectly & convincingly. Excellent movie."
