Kate ★★★½

Starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead as a hitwoman with a conscience, Cedric Nicolas-Troyan's "Kate" is a neon-lit, teeth-rattling action winner. The story, unfolding in all of the expected directions, sees Winstead's protagonist in grave and time-sensitive peril, embarking on a path to learn the reason behind her state. Action beats are ripe; and character threads add life to each punch, slash, and pulled-trigger. With a magnetic Winstead at the fore, the work lands with an impactful and satisfying genre grace.
