Hellen I like the storyline of this show,it attract me so much
Stometer Save your money for something good and enjoyable
ChanFamous I wanted to like it more than I actually did... But much of the humor totally escaped me and I walked out only mildly impressed.
Sarita Rafferty There are moments that feel comical, some horrific, and some downright inspiring but the tonal shifts hardly matter as the end results come to a film that's perfect for this time.
jcjs333 I found out i can't write reviews without doing spoilers...what a wonderful movie...i think i ought qualify my viewing and writing of this took place while stoned... i think 'masterpiece' is an good word to describe it...why was i thinking 'a woman wrote guy could write this good to where he could 'throw himself' into 2 female characters and super strong lead...i think i could point to exaggerated acting for a split second, just maybe....OH, for the first 5 minutes of the film i was determined not to like it and i was sad that i wouldn't like it...why?...'Pulp Fiction' started exactly like Pulp Fiction except it was 2 woman talking silly dialogue on the way to an apt. room to kill.... HOWEVER, from that moment on i was hooked...brilliant writing, acting, directing...again, qualify with i'm stoned'...i think i'd like it straight or crooked...i love 'drama'....i'm getting to where i hate hearing 'f--k' this and that and computer shows...the bubble gum in unison with the gun...the show never dulled or slowed down...there was a fast segment at end but missed the meaning...i found myself thinking these girls are spoiled brats in real life...then, thought 'those partaking in a show like this are great in my book'...this thing could be made in a TV production class...but, not this good!...i think 'Sex Lies Video Tape'...the less 'music' the better...this flick mind blowing beautiful music or sounds...super sparingly and uniquely right on...scenery perfect. I can't say enough good about this 'kudos' to all especially writer/director
Michael Ledo Imagine if you will a universe where Katy Perry and Taylor Swift are paid hitmen working for Danny Trejo in another cameo role. Violet (Alexis Bledel) and Daisy (Saoirse Ronan) are downright enjoyable in this quirky dark comedy. This is a genius indie designed to give you a Merrillee Rush. Violet and Daisy come across an easy hit (James Gandolfini) which causes them to examine their where they met as doll surgeons and life is about a Barbara Sunday designer dress.Some lines from the film:About the number one killer: "He once killed 3 ninjas with a fingernail file." Violet theology: "Heaven is a place...where everything is free or at least wholesale." And "Everything is a test when you are a career woman."Excellent musical score using classical rock tunes to give them new meaning.Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.Written by Geoffrey Fletcher, the first African-American to win an Oscar for best adapted screenplay - "Precious."
TxMike When you get bored you're likely to watch almost anything. That was me, colder than usual March, and Neflix streaming movies offering me this one. Thing is, I like all the actors ... Ronan, Bledel, Trejo, Gandolfini ... so even if the story was uneven it was enjoyable watching all of them. It sets the tone when we see the two teenagers, dressed in Nun's habits, carrying pizza delivery boxes, and casually chit-chatting about 'girl stuff.' Then they ring a doorbell, and proceed to shoot and kill everyone with the guns hidden in the pizza boxes. Afterwards, with the cops coming, they skip away down the sidewalk as if nothing just happened.They are teen assassins (even though Bledel was 29 during filming, she has a very young face) and now look forward to a break, a vacation. But something happens, popular Barbie Sunday has a new line of clothes and they just have to have new dresses. So they need money and agree to another job.The teens are Saoirse Ronan as Daisy and Alexis Bledel as Violet. Their contact man is always reliable Danny Trejo as Russ. The man they are led to is James Gandolfini as Michael, dying of pancreatic cancer, so when they show up, somewhat expectedly, he is resigned to the whole thing.I am not opposed to good movies about teen assassins, in fact Ronan's 'Hanna', made about the same time and about a young girl who is trained to be an assassin, has become one of my favorites. As is 'The Professional' with a very young Natalie Portman aspiring to be an assassin.But this one never gels for me, the story seems all over the place, and it is strange seeing 'Rory' of 'Gilmore Girls' acting tough and talking dirty. It is an interesting concept but I never was sure what the movie was trying to do.
gavin6942 Two teenage assassins accept what they think will be a quick-and-easy job, until an unexpected target (James Gandolfini) throws them off their plan."Violet & Daisy" received mostly negative reviews; it received a rotten rating of 24% on Rotten Tomatoes. How this happened is unknown, because I think it is rather outstanding in its own way.Alexis Bledel is probably best known for the quirky role of Rory Gilmore in the "Gilmore Girls". While she was excellent in that, she had a rather limited range. This takes her outside of that, with a darker tone and a different brand of comedy. I thought it was hilarious.The use of flower names was clever and not at all annoying like it could be, even when the third girl (Rose) is added in. They also happen to share names with Daisy and Violet Hilton, well-known Siamese twins. Was this intentional? Probably not, but it seemed like an interesting take to me.Matt Zoller Seitz sums the film up this way: "Gandolfini's quietly magnificent performance is the only reason to see 'Violet & Daisy,' a thriller that might as well have been released in 1996, when everybody and their brother and their sister and their cousin twice-removed was trying to be Quentin Tarantino, writing screenplays about loquacious hit men and gangsters and molls delivering cutesy monologues in wacky, not-quite-real universes." I see what he is getting at, but why must the best type of film from the 90s remain in the 90s? This is more than a rip off or homage to Tarantino, but a worthy spiritual successor.
