A broken husband swears revenge on those responsible for his wife”s death, while protecting his only family: his daughter. (Netflix Spain)
where can you see the movie
Sweet girl he resorts to the old trick of showing a brief glimpse of what can be seen at the end, with the intention of putting in long teeth and figuring out what the situation will be like. Also, the beginning of the film is a chemically pure drama, giving a sad twist that, unfortunately, is not entirely abandoned during filming. Raymond Cooper (Jason Momoa) he is a dedicated family man whose happiness is interrupted when his wife, played by Adria Arjona, becomes seriously ill due to cancer.
There seems to be a fleeting hope when a new anticancer drug, appearing in its generic version and therefore more accessible, hits the market. However, the pharmacist who created the drug forbids its competitors to manufacture it precisely in the generic version. This practice, with an obvious profit motive, inflames Raymond and his daughter to the point of dismay. Rachel (Isabela Merced), who can”t afford Bioprime”s original drug, that”s the name of the evil company, because it”s prohibitive.
Months later, Raymond receives a call from a stranger saying he knows a series of Bioprime secrets that could destroy the pharmaceutical company if they ever come to light. After arranging a meeting in a very secret way, Raymond stumbles upon the mysterious source of information. Just before speaking, he is stabbed by an assassin who also faces Raymond and Rachel, leaving them badly injured. From here on, the desire for revenge and enlightenment will be overwhelming and untamable.
Sweet girl is a conglomeration of film genres. Participate in the aforementioned family drama, almost 70 conspiracy, action suspense and, for a tip, add a generous dose of social criticism based on the greed of the big pharmaceutical corporations. The problem is that there is no dominant gender around which the others orbit. Instead, we have a style puzzle where the pieces fit together in an unattractive way. The story always has a melancholy touch even in the most hectic moments. I mean, we see Jason Momoa handing out firewood with tears in his eyes.
In that sense, the agreement of a little sense of humor wouldn”t have been too much. Which doesn”t mean when you have to get hard, Sweet girl do this without any problems. The action scenes, for example, are very blunt. In fact, physical fights are particularly violent. However, the rest is a bit gray. It doesn”t reach boredom, but it borders it. And that plot elements are plentiful. Raymond and Rachel are being chased by the FBI and some thugs who want to cut off the wings of their investigation. His research is aimed at someone high up at Bioprime, who in turn seems to be aiming for much more.
Not much is said about the characters” past and past. We know Raymond was a boxer and that he is a tough guy. From Rachel, who is an excellent student who also inherited her father”s combat skills. And here is a variant on the usual; she also takes down enemies like that, becoming almost as lethal as he is. Father and daughter taking revenge as a family.
What will impact us the most in the first instance is that in the action scenes, Sweet girl is not cut. It”s not that they innovate choreographies or present dazzling fights, but they carry an implicit violence, a desire for brutality that sets them apart. On the other hand, they aren”t that numerous either, but technically it”s the most notable thing about the film, which doesn”t offer much boldness either. Bryan Andrew Mendoza, normally a producer, makes his directorial debut with a competent but routine work. Connect the genres that make the movie bearable. But little else.
The point is that intimate moments, based on melancholy, we”ve seen in almost every movie of tortured heroes. Moments of conspiracy are also familiar to us. The script at least breaks linearity into two aspects. On the one hand, social criticism with regard to pharmaceutical products, and the defense of public health and accessible to all (veiled mention of Obamacare included). An interesting aspect, no doubt, but still undeveloped. And, on the other hand, we have what will be one of the controversial elements of the film: the plot twists. One of them in particular will make us see the last third of the film in a completely different way.
However, while a healthy amount of suspension of disbelief is always advisable, consistency is taken to really high levels. Finally Sweet girl, he represents the distraction in a way that suggests that those who were really confused were the screenwriters; calculating when to excite and when to surprise the viewer in a striking and unsubtle way.
in many ways Sweet girl It is a vehicle for the Jason Momoa show. The Hawaiian actor has sought a vengeful role personified in an action thriller, but from the prism of a sensitive and slightly saddened man. A man with a family to avenge or protect. In this aspect, his role is in line with those Liam Neeson has played in recent years, but in a tougher and more brutal way. He can adapt to the archetype, but the role of king of Atlantis is better suited for him.
Following the trend of female characters with power, we find the character Isabela Merced. To actually go from playing Dora the Explorer to becoming a violent and vengeful young woman is a Copernican twist to watch. It”s not a notable role, but it”s not negligible either. Even because a priori your choice to be a part Sweet girl it seems, a priori, curious.
And there really isn”t much else to watch out for. Except for some FBI agents who are particularly useless most of the time. As the archetypal face of the sin of greed, we could single out Justin Bartha in the role of CEO of Bioprime, producing at least a generous dose of animosity. Thus, we will inevitably have on screen, on many occasions, the story of a father-son relationship, which faces two vital positions. Rachel tries to temper, despite her own anger, her father”s spirit and dissuade him from revenge. Raymond, for his part, is willing to take whoever is ahead, this conflict being part of the most substantial part of the film.
Despite borrowing from various genres, Sweet girl It ends up being a film that doesn”t find a particular spark in any of them. That”s why the violent action scenes and radical plot twists stand out so much. There is some indecision in Sweet girl. Take part in the action thriller, family drama, conspiracy plots and social denunciation. Lots of spices for a stew that doesn”t taste so good at the end. At least it seems like no boredom, and Jason Momoa fits in well with the script”s demands.
