She Never Died ★★★½

This slight tale is a sequel to the Henry Rollins vehicle He Never Died, recycling the original premise and starring Oluniké Adeliyi, who takes on Rollins' role with nuclear intensity.

Story wise, there isn't a lot going on here. Oluniké Adeliyi as Lacey is indestructible and kills lots of bad guys. The finale is something of a let down, and that's about it. However, Adeliyi is such a phenomenal force of nature, alternately stoic and feral, that she single-handedly keeps the movie afloat. Add a propulsive soundtrack and some cringe worthy violence, and the movie comes out looking better than it has any right to.

The ending doesn't just leave open the possibility of a sequel. It gets on it's bleeding, bruised hands and knees and pleads for one. I'd watch it.
