Ava (Jessica Chastain) works for an organization of professional assassins who run operations around the world. One of her enemies, angered by the fact that she allows herself to "talk to objects" on assignments, demands that her superiors punish the willful assassin. So Ava, who is used to hunting others, becomes the object of the hunt herself.

The cast of the movie picked up as much as possible fold: many actors not only cooperated earlier on other projects, but have already appeared in the killer role. So, Jess Weixler and Jessica Chastain both appeared in the movie "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them" (2014). And John Malkovich and Colin Farrell have managed to play similar roles in a number of films.

Sam (Karen Gillan) is a brutal assassin in a mafia firm that runs half the city.

To Sam's rescue comes her mother Scarlet (Lena Headey), who disappeared 15 years ago, and a couple of friends, ready to treat Sam's enemies to a "powder cocktail".

Years after escaping from the home where Natasha (Scarlett Johansson) lived a fake life with her "family", she decides to seek revenge on Russian tycoon Dreykov (Ray Winstone), the man responsible for turning her, like so many other girls, into a murder weapon. In an attempt to track down the villain, Natasha is reunited with her "relatives."

"Juicy action, overall good plot, cool duo of Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh, nice relationship dynamics of Natasha's family. The send-off of one of the coolest action heroines in movie history turned out to be worthy", — Want_chips.

"I don't know why such a small rating, basically watching it for the second time. I adore Scarlett and the Marvel trilogy, it's a shame she won't be starring as Black Widow again, though she's wonderful in any role. Really unparalleled acting! Good action, they took a good actress for the role of the sister too, even in some places it was funny. Decent movie!!!" — fb1313417.

The action takes place in 1918 on a Texas farm. A girl named Pearl (Mia Goth) takes care of her paralyzed father, endures the antics of her tyrant mother and waits for her husband from the war. The heroine dreams of the fate of a Hollywood star and life away from home, but the girl can not leave the farm. This drives Pearl crazy, and she becomes a brutal killer.

"Pearl" is a prequel to the movie "X" (2022). The movie explains where evil old lady Pearl comes from and why she hates the world so much.

"X wasn't very memorable for me, it seemed pretty corny, despite my weakness for fucked up old men. Pearl is more interesting both on its own and especially due to the through plots/references to X", — Speiso.

"The girl's a bombshell, but it's a shame she's not good with her head. There's still the first X movie from 2022 and there will be a third. Interesting concept and how it's being filmed", — Sabi-Vasabi.

If you can discuss not only the newest films, but also this topic in general, then I would definitely add Her name was Nikita Luca Besson / - there, for the first time, he tested many of his chips, which will appear in his next films, and the image of a peculiar teenage woman, which will then be used by him more than once (for example, as a prototype of Lila in the Fifth element), and there was also the first meeting with Leon (although his name was different, but it is clear that it was that character played by Jean Reno who later received his own film).
And Nikita's character himself then appears more than once: the TV series Her name was Nikita (1997) and Nikita (2010). In general, this is already a classic))
