T.A.B. - Movie Review: Violet & Daisy

Was invited by a special someone to watch Violet & Daisy together, movie preview at Cathay Platinum Movie Suites! This is my first time watching a movie with such comfy service and seats.. I truly enjoyed the experience!

These are the complimentary snacks. We can of course, order more stuffs to eat while movie is screening.

Alright, back to the movie review :P

Genre: Action/Crime/Humor/Thriller
Classification: N16
Runtime: 88 minutes / 1 hr 28 mins

Directed by Geoffrey Fletcher, casting Alexis Bledel and Saoirse Ronan, the movie started off in a church with two ladies, Violet & Daisy, who are assassins, shooting off and rescuing as part of their mission objectives. Later on, they recevied another new mission, so as to earn some quick bucks to support their favorite idol's brand apparel. But it all went out of track upon receiving this mission, which resulted in a game of comedies and thrills.

My Thoughts

Some things you wouldn't see as in an assassination, unexpectedly shows up in this movie, which brought lots of twists and laughters off. The whole plot focus on the last misson to assassinate a target, Michael (acted by the late James Gandolfini), who was not home at that time. Falling into deep sleep while waiting, target came back home unsurprised, and instead covered them with blanket, making snacks for them while still asleep. Funny part was target even told them where to purchase ammunition since they have ran out of bullets, which then lead to a finding of another group of killers heading to the same location to kill. Through some understanding, Violet & Daisy found it hard to finish off the target, but reluctantly have to, due to their job and request of the target who was examined to have contracted cancer.

What seems to be an action-packed movie, only happens in the beginning. One can expect more humor between the interaction of both girls and the target. I greatly encouraged giving this movie a watch!
