17-year-old Veronica (Breslin) is a skilled assassin sent in to kill four boys her own age that have been hunting and killing girls that look similar to herself.  I really liked the story, DJ didn’t that much.  But he did really like the ending, so there’s that.  It had a fantastic cast and an interesting concept.  It was also really original.  More thriller than horror, but it followed rules and the specials were nice, too.

The only thing is, is that while she’s very likable and we wanted her to kill them all, the movie left you wanting a little more from it all.  Maybe some more stylized, innovative death scenes would’ve pushed the movie into a higher grade.  Still, we recommend.

My score: 53.  DJ’s score: 63.
