Enjoyable ride, fresh faces

This was a thoroughly enjoyable ride from a fresh director and features great performances from three promising young actresses.

Hailee Steinfeld continues to show her versatility as Megan, a trained assassin who just wants to be a normal teenager. Dove Cameron gives a strong performance as the daughter of the host family. I hope to see her in many more movies. Sophie Turner plays Megan's nemesis and has less scenes, but shines in the ones she's in, especially in the end. I'm very much looking forward to seeing her in the title role of X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

The guys in this flick are mostly ornaments. Good old Samuel L. J. and Jessica Alba also play second fiddle here to the youngsters.

Definitely worth a watch. Some action, some high school drama, very much fun. Looking out for more from director Kyle Newman.

A great movie, nonetheless

I believe this movie has a nice story line: a teenage girl missing out on the trends of adolescence and wants to be a part of it; and great casting: Hailee Steinfeld, Jason Drucker, Dove Cameron and Thomas Mann to name a few who did a fine job. I expected funny moments, and there were funny moments, actually funnier than I expected, and such as are peculiar to high school.

Megan (Steinfeld) thought she could eventually be the best student at Newton High School as she was at Prescott, but realizes it's not as easy adjusting to it's highs and lows in just a few days or weeks. Jason Drucker, I'd say was my favorite character. He already likes Megan even before she arrived "from Canada", and throughout the movie, kept me giggling anytime he was on screen. He always looked like he wished he could say more than he was given. Cameron was splendid. I could feel her initial dislike for a totally inexperienced newbie at high school; and Thomas Mann played his nerdy role brilliantly. Sophie did good being a second-best, less preferred agent, envious of 83. Jackson played a fatherly (sort-of) role: serious minded, and looking out for his Prescotts. Although I do not perfectly understand Jessica's role, but so far she did well.

It's really a good movie. The cast and crew were excellent.

For some people, living a normal life is a challenge!

Teen girl's film, but no usual romance-comedy. There are some small clich├ęs, but being it is an action film, those parts looked kind of small. Yeah, nice casting. Hailee was really cool. The 'Descendant' girl Dove was good as well. The rest of cameos like Samuel L. Jackson and Alba was fine. It was from the director of 'Fanboys'. It tells the story of a girl trained to be an assassin from a very young age who escapes the centre to live a normal life in the real world. And that's where she struggles to blend in, as well as to overcome from the tailing troubles of the past.

A well entertaining film, if you are not expecting anything big. It got a few great action sequences. Except Sam L. Jack, it is totally a chick film and most probably suitable for everyone for viewing. I enjoyed it, but I don't think I want a sequel for it. Particularly business wise that won't do well as this one was not received well by the film critics. Despite I approve it for a go, the rating wise it is just an average film. Sometimes that's where opinion divides for a film about what we felt watching it and how we're going to rate it later on.

6/10
