A movie with Rory Gilmore and the little girl from Atonement playing assassins? Where do we sign up? The premise and casting of the new movie Violet & Daisy is immediately intriguing. Luckily, it mostly pays off.
You really never get used to seeing these two angelic girls with their giant blue eyes gleefully and efficiently murdering people. The violence is extremely Tarantino-esque, as are the title cards that appear throughout the movie to divide it into chapters, and the blood spurting in slow motion. In fact, the film owes so much to Tarantino that I expected his usual cameo.
The movie becomes much more complicated and interesting when they're assigned James Gandolfini as a target. When he appeared on screen, people around me in the audience actually sighed in happy relief. Tony Soprano is here! And he's playing a sad mushy man who may have hired the girls himself to help him commit suicide.
Watching the girls finally have feelings and deal with ther daddy issues through chatting with Gandolfini can be a little heavy-handed at times, but all three actors are just so talented that you're happy to hang out in their company.
OK! or OMG?!: The movie is totally twisted, but you will definitely never forget it—can you say that about most fluffy summer movies? OMG all the way for these gals.
