New Movie – In the Blood
Gina Carano (former MMA winner) plays Ava whose husband disappears during their honeymoon in the Caribbean. She uses her fighting skills to find him.
I love Gina. However, when she’s acting she looks uncomfortable and has deadpan eyes. Part of the movie, she’s wearing sunglasses which does help. I thought acting wise she did better than Haywire.
Plot-wise there were holes in this movie. Danny Trejo who played Big Biz seems to show up twice. Once in the beginning where I think he’s the bad guy and then at the end providing the resolution that wasn’t believable.
I’d rather have seen more of Danny Trejo and him getting word that his men are being attacked, etc.
Also, Gina’s character (supposedly having a dark past) goes pretty light on her taking down these men that have her husband. I’d like to have seen a grittier side like Payback.
I think Gina would excel at a role in which she’s shut down her emotions.
My rating 2.5 out of 5 stars
Still, I look forward to watching Gina in the movie Kickboxer filming now and as Angel Dust in Deadpool due out next year.
Why will I continue to watch Gina Carano movies? Because she’s an awesome fighter, she’s showing improvement in relaxing in front of the camera somewhat, and because of Girl Power!
Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends, and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
Divorced and disillusioned of love and believing all the love songs and books exaggerated, she put aside her creativity for life. Many years past before characters, from the familiar to the freshly conceived, came to her again, but this time teasing at a new passion, the written word.
Gradually, her real life hero brought love and magic back into existence. During the time when her characters were getting reacquainted, the love of her life was showing her that true love never gives up and rekindles no matter how many times others attempt to extinguish it. Today, she is happily married with three children.
Andrea believes in the power of change and delighting in each moment. But most fervently, she believes in the magic of love and imagination again.
