Overall Thoughts

Gunpowder Milkshake will perhaps remind viewers of films like Kill Bill and Pulp Fiction, as it has a very Quentin Tarantino feel to it. While the film tries to aim for Tarantino level of excellence, it does not quite hit the mark but deserves an E for effort. This action-packed fight-fest of a film is done in a cartoonish way with each well choreographed battle accompanied with a delicious soundtrack which adds a bit of badass-ness to each fight scene. The women in Gunpowder Milkshake hold all the power and are very much the driving force in the film.

The cast is made up of incredibly talented and strong women, resulting in a convincing cast of assassins. There is not a ton of backstory to the film, but practically everything you need to know you learn as you go along.  You may be left with a lot of questions, but this is a movie where the action is what it’s all about. You’ve no doubt seen movies of this kind before, and it is starting to feel a bit overdone at this point, but as long as there is still a market for high action assassin girls, Hollywood will keep pumping them out. Overall, nothing really even stood out to separate this movie from others of its kind, but regardless it’s still worth a watch for genre fans.
