Popcorn Culture - Review: The Mother

On the surface, The Mother looks like just another skippable action flick on Netflix, but upon closer inspection, its skippability quickly decreases. First, it stars Jennifer Lopez as a military-trained assassin who comes out of hiding to protect her estranged daughter against revenge-crazed criminals. If you're still not sold, it's also directed by Niki Caro, who helmed The Zookeeper's Wife, North Country, McFarland USA... and the live-action remake of Mulan. In this episode, we review a movie that has every right to be a lot of mindless fun, at the very least, and discuss if it truly lives up to its potential.
