Why watch this film?
For years, Mary Elizabeth Winstead was known as the Queen of Scream, starring in various horror films - 'Premonition 3', 'Death Proof', 'The Call 2', 'Black Christmas' and others - and now, she is one of the actresses showing female power in action movies. In case you don't remember her, Winstead gave life to Ramona Flowers in the adaptation of 'Scott Pilgrim vs. The World'. After her participation as The Hunter in 'Birds of Prey', we can see all the potential of the actress in 'Kate'. The production may not have pleased the critics, but it is fun, even if it is a conglomerate of other feature films starred by men and even some with women, in the case of 'Lucy' with Scarlett Johansson. Netflix has delivered great movies with good female presence, such as 'The Old Guard' with Charlize Theron, and 'Kate' is part of this batch. Maybe the male audience prefers to watch a generic - endless - franchise starred by an older man who clearly can't commit to the maximum in action scenes, but here is the recommendation if you want to see Mary Elizabeth Winstead ruling in great sequences.
Meticulous and preternaturally skilled, Kate is the perfect specimen of a finely tuned assassin at the height of her game. But when she uncharacteristically blows an assignment targeting a member of the yakuza in Tokyo, she quickly discovers she's been poisoned, a brutally slow execution that gives her less than 24 hours to exact revenge on her killers. As her body swiftly deteriorates, Kate forms an unlikely bond with the teenage daughter of one of her past victims
