Gunpowder Milkshake

Gunpowder Milkshake ★★★

Takes the tired trend of pop song scored ultra-choreographed hyper-violent fight scenes almost to the breaking point, fraying the traditional revenge movie into a series of cleverly staged action that only hits on a very base level of excitement. It’s all fun and games in these tooth ache inducing sets when Karen Gillan is mowing down baddies, until the moment the film tries for deeper character beats and it falls with a thick and hearty splat all over the pristine floors of its 50s diner. Visually and kinetically dynamic, but so hollow.
