Outnumbered, Sam turns to a handful of fellow female assassins - including her long-missing mother (Headey) - who team up to turn the tables on their attackers.

Papushado’s flamboyance feels cocky and indiscriminate, as if he’s simply trying really hard to make every image seem cool.

Not everyone’s cup of mayhem, assuredly... The attitude is decidedly tongue-in-cheek. The tone of the acting is so heightened it’s a shock no one gets a nosebleed.

The graphic novel-inspired world of Gunpowder Milkshake isn’t unique, but it’s admirably committed and Papushado edges his film away from the danger of pastiche thanks to an equally committed cast.

What Papushado and Ehud Lavski’s script lacks, no amount of charisma is able to make up.

Gunpowder Milkshake feels like it only ever scratches the surface of what each of its leads can do.

A neon-colored action flick that doesn’t pay homage to recent genre hits so much as openly ape them...

This is regurgitated shoot-'em-up nothingness fetishistically dressed in the cosplay of equality.

The whole thing is just fun, sugary as a milkshake, with no brain freeze to worry about.

It’s a bloody feast for the eyes... you just might have to leap over the plot holes and massive tonal shifts while wielding customized mini-bayonets to enjoy the good stuff.

It brings style, infectious energy from its protagonists, and several memorable action sequences that deliver enough amusing fun while it lasts.
