The likes of “John Wick” and “The Raid: Redemption” raised the bar for what action movies could achieve. Every other studio has raced to play catch-up since their releases, and it looks like Netflix is about to get in on the fun with its version of a heavily stylized, bloody romp.
“Gunpowder Milkshake” follows Sam (Karen Gillan), a hitwoman who becomes the guardian of an eight-year-old girl after a job turns sideways. It forces her to go rogue and contact her estranged mother, Scarlet (Lena Headey). It’s the perfect summer watch depicting a bunch of killer women having a blast that you can watch in the comfort of your home.
