The Rhythm Section (2020, dir. Reed Morano)

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.

The Enforcer (1976, dir. James Fargo)

Dirty Harry Callahan – now with a female partner – takes on a terrorist cell holding San Francisco to ransom. Third in the series, and the decline has set in; a straightforward and at times┬ábrutal actioner with some moments of cynical humour to redeem it.
