Given the fact that heroes of the militants late last year (and zero years) inevitably grow old, and actors of our time, not reach the level of Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Nicolas cage, John Travolta and other, it is possible that now the industry is looking for a new milestone in the development of the cinema.

That appear in movies like "Purple mint", "Widows" or"Hell's kitchen", where the ball is ruled by hard ladies, destroy enemies right and left. Although something similar was shown more in 1997, the year when he went gangster drama "the Godmother" with Nastassja Kinski in the title role.

In fact, I don't mind that women played a major role in movies was extremely dangerous, because women are all the same insidious creatures. And so the filmmakers justifiably release them on the first plan. Here don't always it turns out effectively and efficiently. One of the example of this is "Hell's kitchen" — a film about three married women, who decided to go on the criminal path after their husbands have sent for behind the robbery of the store.

It's possible that whether the Director is male, he was able to turn the three ladies — the main characters in really unscrupulous and tough lady. But Andrea Berloff not able to take a look at the characters of Melissa McCarthy, Elisabeth moss and Tiffany Haddish not women's eyes. No, not even to not women and rather, the Director's perspective to assess what is removed. At the thoughts of Berloff can be traced to being too easy in that occurs in "Hell's kitchen". Even the crime for which men came in jail was shot so that it looks a few carelessly. Too fast and they just burned in a trivial matter, although he could to arrange on "once or twice". Too easy and fast trio of the main characters comes to thought the realization that without crime in their life is not necessary. And their racketeering tendencies appear as though they come in stores to negotiate with the seller to the saved them weight dumpling dough, and when they will return to work to home, take the semi-finished product.

And it is especially too fast ladies come to the realization that need to take weapons in order to survive in this world. Situation, shown as the catalyst that motivated them to act, look hard enough and do not lead the viewer to the conclusion — "Yes, them was no other way".

Again, in the "Godmother" all presented in a better and the film's Director David green has created a very emotional atmosphere, gave the audience a crazy dramatic scene, after which a group of women banded together for in order to accomplish the act of revenge. Here there great stated the reasons and consequences, superbly played by actress and the spectators saw that they (the characters) and really have any other choice.

In "Hell's kitchen" is not so. Too weak and surface gangster oriented. Although the film is undeniably enjoyable in terms of recreating the atmosphere of new York. Interiors, auto, noisy and dirty streets, suits — all designed to a good level. But it's plus, who was the only one in my personal perception. In the rest of the "Hell's kitchen" turned out to be weak and not pulling on the role is really a crime film. Not is best choice of the main cast. Imagine Melissa McCarthy in the form of harsh ladies, but not harsh Dura — difficult. The choice of the Director obvious is synonymous with being invited to the role of Lara Croft Whoopi Goldberg.

However, to watch You. Your opinion is not impose.

Nice view.

It is easy to draw Parallels between "Hell's kitchen" and"Widows." Both of the film have similar plot, except that "Hell's kitchen" is an adaptation of the comic book publishers Vertigo. In the original trio of mob wives do business until they men prison. Of course, not all gangsters agree with the change of leadership, so three heroines of the problems begin. The action takes place in a gloomy new York suburb in the 70s and the creators obviously tried to recreate the atmosphere of the gangster film style of Scorsese, but that's in the end it was a criminal project with minimum rates and inconsistent structure.

Hell's kitchen has its share of pleasant moments. Generally Actresses for the main roles — winning combination of the film, since they show their acting talents. Scenario — not the strongest side, because the very quickly the characters are moving from the meek Housewives in the camp of these gangsters. The however, the actress managed and tried to convincingly convey a metamorphosis. It's a pity only that the script does not raises the reality of racism of the 1970s (including in itself of the dispute "district to district"), which the heroine Tiffany Haddish is not place. In whole women's history, the film also spends a good opportunity to explore the archetypes of female anti-heroes. Gender identity is represented in the "Hell's kitchen" as yet the little reviews gives the script.

This is not the only problem. In General, "Hell's kitchen" feels written (and possibly removed) a neural network, in which is laid the aforementioned "Widows" and"Nice guys." The "kitchen" — very variable in the tone of the film, many scenes in General, without the context. Perhaps the film allows us to Express women's relationships, however, even in them there internal logic. The timing of the project is 102 minutes, and I think when the installation was discarded about the same material, which probably contained explanations. Many plot twists, "Hell's kitchen" felt that they are taken as if from nowhere.

Conceptual cracks trying to patch style. New York bird's-eye and cool soundtrack work for the entertainment, but quickly run out of steam. Even in scenes that do not have suffered at the ruthless editing, the influence of Goodfellas.

It seems that the project has tried to cram too many threads and characters. No one of them receives the development, the movie feels some unsaid. Gloomy and dull, the film could be provocative gangster film with strong women and turned out to be more chaotic and confusing version of "the widow".
