A woman who faces assassins sent by her ex, a mob boss, while held up in her apartment.
From the first time I saw the trailer I wanted to see this movie and it was not a let down. Everly is a fresh idea and this film is like Kill Bill turned up to 11, although some of the subject matter (sex trafficking) is hard to swallow at times.
There's not much music in the movie, mostly just dark tones. Some of the most twisted stuff in the movie is made up of sounds, fascial reactions and your brain fills in the blanks. The story is well written and is like nothing you have seen before. Joe Lynch did an amazing job directing this masterpiece; the action scenes are over the top and the intense scenes are heart pounding and will keep you on edge.
Now let's talk about the star, Salma Hayek is spectacular! I think only few woman could hold a movie like Everly on their own. She keeps you rooting for her character from start to finish and the strength she gives Everly to go on is amazing. Every time something bad happens to her you feel crushed.
Everly is a tight action thriller with a fast pace, heart pounding suspenseful moments, shocking scenes, and the odd funny one liner. This film isn't for everyone but it sticks with you for days after you see it. Everly is an awesome character that goes from an enslaved woman to a hero. I'd like to see Joe Lynch and Salma Hayek get awarded for this film. Cheers and remember like won't suck as long as there is a good movie to watch.
Also keep your eyes open for a cameo from Joe Lynch him self
