This trailer gives off a definitely Lucy vibe, which I know that some people will be happy about. Myself, I kind of viewed Lucy as being a missed opportunity that wasted one of the most iconic actresses of our age. Hopefully, Jolt will handle things a bit more successfully! If it doesn’t, I might just have to give up on action-packed sci-fi films that take place in all-white rooms.
Kate Beckinsale plays Lindy, who apparently can do all the thing that Kate Beckinsale did the Underworld films, except this time she’s fueled by a little spark as opposed to being a Death Dealer or whatever is was that was going on in Underworld. (Seriously, I’ve seen all of the Underworld films and I still couldn’t tell you what was going on in most of them.) As I’ve said in the past, I’m a huge Kate Beckinsale fan. I loved her as Selene and I will watch any movie that features her beating people up and using electrodes to torture the bad guys …. well, actually, I’m not a huge fan of torture. I’m definitely not a big fan of listening to people shriek in pain and beg for their lives. That’s just not for me. So, I’ll probably go get a Coke during those scenes. You know how that goes.
Anyway, Jolt will be released on Prime on July 23rd so we don’t have that long of a wait. Woo hoo!
