The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Char­l­ize Theron’s grav­i­ty­de­fy­ing stunts (and out­fits) are the main rea­son to flick over to this fea­ture ver­sion of the cult an­i­mated se­ries. The Os­car-win­ner plays the tit­u­lar stealthy as­sas­sin who works for an un­der­ground group of rebels in the year 2415, where the world is a strictly con­trolled, virus-dec­i­mated place ruled from within a walled city by a power-hun­gry leader (Mar­ton Csokas). How­ever, what ini­tially be­gins as an as­sas­si­na­tion mis­sion turns into some­thing far more danger­ous. A bet­ter-thanaver­age cast and un­com­mon in­tel­li­gence adds sub­stance to Girl­fight di­rec­tor Karyn Kusama’s ar­rest­ing sci-fi thriller. ★★✩
