Evie Lyn

I wasn't sure about this Selma Hayek vehicle, but what the hell, I'll give it a go.

Everly is a kept woman (as in actually kept), but one time goes too far, and she fights back. But she doesn't get out of her apartment as the bad guys come to her, now that's convenient! However, she must fight because of her daughter, and will even trade her life to make sure her daughter is fine.

This could be considered one of those 'bottle' movies, where to keep costs down they stay in one set... but I'm not sure that would have saved much. There's a lot of action, and shootings and set pieces that this is a fast paced movie with lots going on. And Selma Hayek is right in the middle of it. And well she does. One could point out that she gets a little more battered than could be believed... but only if one also points that out of every action movie.

They've greenlit Everly 2, right?
