Jason Bournes older sister

Great story, great acting . The action scenes/ fight are fantastic .

The film is very good not understanding why anyone would vote this down below 6 ? I gave it a 8 because it's such great performance by Allison Jenney.

I found it just a tad , predictable , but over all an entertaining bout of film.

Don't worry about the lower scores just remember to watch this movie for the pleasure to watch Allison kick some serious arse .

This is pretty darn good and deserves attention . Many will call it woke but it seems organic . Enjoy the movie it's worth a watch .

Turn of your tv watch this movie now .

Had problems.

I should start off here by saying in general the acting was actually pretty good. The movie had a good cast for the most part and almost everyone played their parts well. The direction seemed pretty good too as did the photography. The music fit the movie well and the the scenery and location were great.

So why aren't I scoring this higher? Plot holes. Lots and lots of plot holes. People doing stupid things for stupid reasons. The scripting in some parts was terrible and also as well as the acting was the action scenes were just far too unrealistic.

The main reason however is because the whole thing was so predictable within 10 minutes I could of written the whole film out and not been far wrong.

If you're not looking for surprises you may enjoy this more than I did.

I can't recommend it though.

Intriguing beginning but quickly drops in quality

As "Lou" (2022 release; 109 min) opens, we are introduced to Lou, a fifty-something "lone ranger" woman in remote Washington State (we later learn it's the San Juan Islands). One senses she has had a complicated past. Her neighbor is Hannah, a thirty-something mother of a young daughter. A big storm is arriving soon, and before you know it, things go haywire on many different levels. At this point we are 10 min into the movie.

Couple of comments: this film is directed by noted cinematographer Anna Foerster. More importantly, the film is produced by none other than J. J. Abrams, immediately raiding expectations. Alas, it was not to be. For that, look no further than the script, which is frankly quite weak. Not only do things happen that simply make no sense, but worse, there is never any doubt how all of this is going to play out in the end. There are two bright lights: first, Allison Janney brings a tough performance in the title role. Second, the outdoor scenery (somewhere in the wild and wide open Pacific Northwest) is simply tops. It's a shame that the rest of the production isn't on the same high level.

"Lou" premiered on Netflix this past weekend. If you are in the mood for an "action thriller" that is fairly straight-forward if not predictable, I'd readily suggest you keep your expectations fairly low, and then draw your own conclusion.

Good movie. Although, the plot twist was obvious about 30 minutes into the film. I won't spoil it though.

Is thoughtcriminal a euphemism for a ret@rd?

Would it bother people less if it were evil black men instead? Because there are a few hundred of those out there already dating back to Birth of a Nation in 1915.

Honestly? At least it's an "original" story line for a female hero type vs remaking a Rambo flick for feminism. I'll give it a shot. The trailer gives me a "Salt" is retired, old and trying to stay hidden vibe.
