Everly is a 2014 American action thriller film.

Everly (Salma Hayek), a prostitute working for the brutal criminal overlord Taiko (Hiroyuki Watanabe), is being attacked in her apartment…

Thats all I can tell you without giving away the movie. I am going to be honest with you. I watched this on netflix and I had very low expectations. I personally hate anything with a female lead when it comes to action. You really have to sell me. You really have to sell me. In the first five minutes, the movie got me… If you don’t have any feelings don’t watch this movie. You will just laugh at all the sadistic stuff that goes on.

Me…. Well I liked the sadistic stuff and it was just one amazing ride. The first thing that I really appreciated about this movie is the fact that it did a lot of method acting. With this material that definitely was the way to go. The second thing about this movie was that it had very few sets. Where as in most movies this would work against you not here…. In this movie, you aren’t traveling through set pieces. You are traveling through the emotional landscape of the characters.

When it comes to emotions Salma baby you are king… this could have easily felt as boring as hunger games but you made it work. Great action acting… great emotional weight… you really stepped up… yes the movie was campy at times… heck its very campy but your work… perfect… concerning the other characters… they were a lot of asian actors… their role was perfect.

The humor in this dark action comedy was just spot on. It was dark gritty and just way over the top. I was at the edge of my seat wondering what crazy thing was going to happen next. The movie had me.

Note: a lot of f bombs and strong emotional material. Strangely no boob shots… even so if you are an adult you will enjoy this one so much… you can definitely see traces of diehard in this movie.  Even so, its worth a watch and I personally would love to see a part 2
