  • 3 stars Odd pacing and it makes the whole vibe of the movie feel a bit off. As others mention it is slow to start and near the end picks up the pace which is what throws the whole thing off kilter. Somehow the political undercurrent ends up not feeling naturally connected to the heist/crime portion. I get it intellectually but the two don't seamlessly flow. I was riveted by the acting however, each woman brought perfection. Brilliant! Over all worth it to watch particularly if you like Viola Davis' work.
  • 1 stars Dislike. This is a ghetto type movie that they are using the very talented Mrs. Davis to promote. The lack of lady like mannerisms of Mrs. Davis is annoying. She's a beautiful women but they have obviously refuse to allow her to exude ( like they do other actresses) lady like qualities. Colorism at its finest. She didn't even have her nails painted. Please do not support this film. Its just another hood movie!
  • 5 stars Original story with twists. Emotionally and visually arresting. Very under rated.
  • 4 stars The time it takes to get to the point of the movie was a drag,but after that it was enjoyable. Viola is the greatest actor!!
  • 5 stars Another women-go-Rambo production- but with a dark realism that lifts it above the rest. Viola Davis is incandescent again. Leem Neeson is perfectly cast against type. There plot twists and flashbacks that made me want to rewind see how they all fit together, but only when the credits are rolling. It also raises the question: What would you do if forced into their situation? Whatever the case, it's fun to watch them play it out.
  • 3 stars another odd version of the ocean series similar to oceans 8
  • 4 stars Great acting by entire cast all the way through. Just when i thought I've seen this storyline before there were some interesting turns that keep you in the movie until end. A little more violent than I like, and director introduction before movie, as well done as the movie is, seemed a bit of distraction and unnecessary.
  • 1 stars Very slow. Violent. Not recommended for a younger audience.
  • 2 stars Great acting but depicted white people as horrible - please stop!
  • 4 stars I really enjoyed this movie! In my opinion, a movie doesn't have to be totally realistic to be enjoyable entertainment. One complaint - considering the strong women involved - I was disappointed there was an unnecessary female nude/sex scene. Not a lot...but I felt the scene could have been handled differently, without exploiting another young female.
