Kitty The Killer (2023) NYAFF 2023

Alleged comic book logic rules the day in the battle of assassins controlled by secret organizations as a young school girl code named kitty tries to unravel a mess her boss got himself into and get revenge for his killing.

I'm sorry if that doesn't make a hell of a lot of sense, that's because this film doesn't make a hell of a lot of sense. Pulling plot points from at least three or four dozen other sources from books, comics, TV series and movies. Its a film that borrows liberally from everywhere to make stew that explodes and splash itself all over the place. Things seem to happen just to keep the movie going. The filmmakers claim it's comic book logic, but comics have logic, this just has odd turns just because.

That might have worked if the film was fast paced, but this film is slow as molasses. Everything in this movie moves at one quarter speed including the action sequences which while blood soaked  are all in slow motion. There is no spark no zip. Worse there is no suspense because there is no hurry. This is quite simply one of the dullest action films I've ever seen.

Who was this film made for?

I can not in good conscience recommend this film to anyone who even remote likes action films.
