Kate

Kate ★★★

Too often Kate relies on other films for what could kindly be called an emotional shorthand or, if you wanted to be a little less kind, lack of originality. "Hey, remember when this happened in Leon, and how sad you were? So you probably feel pretty sad now, right?"

That said, the action is really great. Top-tier stuff.

So it all balances out, right?

Also, this isn't really a spoiler so I'm not going to click the "contains spoilers" button down there, but can we please stop casting Woody Harrelson in films and then pretending like this isn't telegraphing a huge plot point right from the start.
