11:30Many Bosley’s is confusing.
13:33You’d think Charlie would have upgraded his speaker by now.
16:46No one ever listens to the experts.

Thoughts

So much better than that Full Throttle sequel! I really loved this. Trust in Elizabeth Banks for a girl power movie that isn’t too in-your-face, it’s just people being awesome. It’s a movie in which Patrick Stewart is the bad guy but was still brilliant!

The story stacked up, the way the rookie handled herself was great, and I love Kristen Stewart’s character and haircut! The closing credits, too, were fab, surprise after surprise. I just really enjoyed the whole ride.

Rating: 5 / 5
