Instant Cult Classic: If Orange Is The New Black & Caitlyn Jenner a pinup for a new generation then Michelle Rodriguez must be the next Vin Diesel
8 March 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I did not know what to expect from this, or rather expected the worst. Boy was I surprised! This was great. Everything from the story and performances to the editing and production was well above par. Don't believe the negative reviews....this is some cool stuff. A gender-bending action drama with compelling motivations, tightly acted scenes and good pacing that keeps things moving along nicely. Michelle Rodriguez gives a phenomenal performance and I found myself thinking of her as a man, so convincingly did she play her part. Sigourney Weaver brings another excellent bitch-role to life as the cold and twisted doctor. She has several scenes with Tony Shaloub where she chews up the scenery and you're reminded once again how great she is, and has always been. Rent it!
