A lost young woman is trained as an assassin to avenge her parents’ terrorism-related deaths. Solid thriller mashing up La Femme Nikita with a comicbook origin story. Lively is a great lead and good technical credits help (there’s a fine one-shot car chase), though the script is rote, and there’s clumsy use of pop song scoring.
A special forces sniper has his son targeted by extraterrestrials. Odd belated series continuation with some awkward and distasteful ideas and no sense of clarity about its reason to exist. Some neat moments and in-jokes, but this is a disappointing and contrived mess nevertheless.
