What would you do if it turned out the death fo your family in a plane crash wasn’t chance, but the result of a bombing? What would you do to the people behind the bomb?
If you’re Black Lively in The Rhythm Section, you kill everyone who gets in your way.
It seems that The Rhythm Section will take a more practical approach to the female action film than say something like Atomic Blonde or Anna. She doesn’t appear to some super trained assassin, just someone who wants revenge for what she has lost.
Blake Lively stars as Stephanie Patrick, an ordinary woman on a path of self-destruction after her family is tragically killed in a plane crash. When Stephanie discovers that the crash was not an accident, she enters a dark, complex world to seek revenge on those responsible and find her own redemption. Based on the novel by Mark Burnell, from director Reed Morano (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) and the producers of the James Bond film series, The Rhythm Section also stars Jude Law and Sterling K. Brown.
The Rhythm Section hits theaters on Jan. 31, 2020.
