    The idea that someone besides Spielberg probably should have directed this movie is pretty far from a hot take at this point. I'd definitely agree. As is, it's good. A little cheesy, but strong characters and performances outweigh said cheesiness.

    This felt like the stereotypical Lifetime Original Movie got a 2000s Thriller makeover. So uh... weird tone. I kept feeling like the movie wanted me to have fun watching JLo and child escape domestic violence. I also took issue with the pacing. The last 20 minutes are the revenge movie I was promised. There's roughly 100 minutes of not that beforehand.

    Generic Wes Anderson review:
    I can’t stand Wes Anderson. I don't think he's funny. His stories are usually comprised of a dozen or so characters with a single quirky defining trait. Then he beats that trait into the ground while meandering through a weak story with distinctly colorful visuals. 

    EDIT: Also it’s a stop motion children’s movie. Nothing else about my generic review has changed.

    I thought this movie was pandering garbage. It's such an incredible and interesting story about black women doing excellent things amid extreme adversity. I feel the filmmakers cut out anything that could possibly be controversial or interesting and just made a movie for the sake of getting some awards love. There's barely any conflict in this movie. Every character arc felt like this to me: 

    Black Character: I want to be a (insert profession)! 
    White Character: No! 
    Black Character: Come…
