Wingwomen (2023)

French movies hit different man. There's just something about them... and I'm not just saying that cause this one stars a bad-ass femme fatale cast that I really just enjoy seeing.

The blood's not perfect, the scripting's not perfect either, but the directing... the directing's special here, the settings, the faces, the places, the transitions... and the charm's on overload.

The sights make me want to move to France, and the unconventionally passionate sequences remind me that there's a world outside Hollywood too.

Like the naked fight scene. That was new. Wouldn't see that in an American movie! Would you? At least not with as revealing angles as you have here. A clothed woman fighting a naked man that is - it's been somewhat included in other films the other way around, like with the first Point Break with Keanu Reeves. Or wait was the girl there maybe just topless... that scene probably left an imprint more so because I watched it in school (the girls in class were a bit flustered about it) more than because it really was all out there. Other fully nude mainstream movie fights I cannot recall, I must have seen some, in Naked Weapon maybe...

Here it's a relatively buff naked black man fighting a petite (but pretty athletic) white girl no less though. Which was definitely new to me. Cultural diversity FTW. And what better to convey both the potential threat and the vulnerability of a man than with their being naked.

Of course would have been way more interesting were they both naked.

Anyway some stunts they don't really do justice, and the fights overall aren't amazingly complex or fluent, but some... some are real good. Real good. They get creative too. Not just with that one fight above.

The scripting though: I'm not 100% happy about that part.

Like did she just plan to leave Alex hanging a full four years? And how did Alex get off that roof in the first place? And the heist went way too easy - all complications considered - all things leading up to it too. Same with the final showdown. The Godmother... she deserved more.

The special-effects are heavy initially, and some scenes are a letdown, but it definitely wins me over along the way. Sexy and action-heavy as it is right from the start, and with plenty of intimacy and character bonding along the way. Though no full on high five I really love a movie like this.

Great watch.
