Classic MK Ultra programming and noble snobs who hunt youths for sport & ritual

RELEASED IN 2015 and directed by Tyler Shields, "Final Girl" concerns a little orphaned girl in Washington (state) who is trained by a mysterious cold man, William (Wes Bentley), in assassination techniques and the use of drugs. Veronica's first real mission is to target four pompous young guys, who are sociopathic murderers. Abigail Breslin plays the protagonist.

This is a cool meshing of films like "Hanna" (2011), "The Hunger Games" (2012) and "Point of No Return" (1993). The British Columbia cinematography is gorgeous and the tone is surreal, but there's not enough character exposition, which is the movie's main flaw. Other than that, this is top-notch filmmaking.

Viewers complain that Breslin was wrong for the role because she wasn't "cut enough" and the emphasis was on how cute/attractive she appeared than on being a convincing slayer. But Veronica (Abigail) was cultivated by William (Bentley) to be an assassin, not appear on TV as a martial arts celebrity. Assassins are SUPPOSED to be inconspicuous, not openly pegged as merciless killers. That's why William had her dressed in pretty dresses, etc. She wasn't supposed to look like a kick axx assassin. It's the same reason Capt. Willard (Martin Sheen) was picked by high command for his mission in "Apocalypse Now" (1979).

To help understand the movie, reflect on the spotlights in the forest. They weren't just there to give an artsy feel; "Final Girl" is darker and cleverer than that. Veronica's parents died and she was instantly recruited by a trainer who taught her classic MK Ultra programming (an infamous CIA mind control program). She learns about drugs and techniques in how to seduce and slay.

The sociopathic dudes enjoy hunting women in the woods for sport. While the overall way it's portrayed is not realistic, it recalls royal families in England and elite families in America back in the day who would hunt individuals for sport and ritual. Consider Jimmy Savile who allegedly supplied kids from shelters for noble and exclusive families in Europe. This is where the concept of The Hunger Games hails. It's reality. Elitist snobs would hunt youths for fun and have them fight to the death for sport.

Another obvious flaw is: How could the young lads get away with murdering myriad innocent girls for so long, particularly when you consider how overt they are about luring the prey into their web. Moreover, one of these ignoramuses would've surely spilled the beans at some point, but they're all so cavalier about their dirty deeds. If the handler (Bentley) knows about their diabolical frolics in the woods, wouldn't the police?

THE FILM RUNS 90 minutes and was shot in Vancouver, British Columbia. WRITERS: Adam Prince wrote the script based on a story by Johnny Silver, Stephen Scarlata & Alejandro Seri.

Has potential but mixed thoughts

I didn't see the trailer, but found this browsing the recommendations through Netflix. I have very mixed thoughts on the different aspects of the film. It does have great potential from the plot. Straightforward and to the point. From the beginning, Veronica is being trained as an assassin, thought you don't know why. I would have liked a little backstory to find out why. There are just references to the teacher having endured his life falling apart due to family being murdered which is great motivation, but it doesn't shed light on how his trauma connects with the plot of Veronica trained to specifically target the 4 boys.

The plot of getting revenge on the boys and their "sport" has great potential, but has some story missing on why the training was specifically for them considering her training began as a child and by the time she's fully trained, she's the same age of the boys she's targeted as... There's something missing to that. If it's specifically to target them, the training started YEARS before they even began their own "sport" of luring and killing, so nothing is explained to her specific targets.

The cinematography is beautiful. The lighting, coloring, and set design was beautifully done. It's obvious that the lighting is a very artistic way of highlighting the action instead of the usual cinematography, but if you view it from the indie artistic viewpoint, you can definitely enjoy the lighting of the set, and the vivid colors, and the highlighting. It definitely is stunning.

The action sequences are well acted, though the writing has much to be desired. The actors did well with what they were given, but there's not too much depth other than what is said, and the effects of how Veronica extracts her revenge on them with bringing out their worst fears as she attacks.

Overall, well done, stunning lighting, and training. But... there's a lot lacking in the way of specific motives for why these boys if training started in childhood, and no connection between them and the teacher. Very under-developed in that sense. Focusing on the boys and their "sport" without scenes of their every day life does help focus on their actions though, so it's obvious that they are menacing and deserving of the revenge. But the straightforward plot, though it is direct and to the point, is lacking with the connections underneath the surface.

Can I have ice cream?

We meet Veronica as a child whose parents died. She has a photographic memory and gets trained for a future job. In a poorly developed subplot 4 guys hunt and kill a woman in the woods. Veronica (Abigail Breslin) who has been in some sort of training for 12 years, practices stuff she should already know. Her photographic memory never enters the script again.

Veronica agrees to go into the woods with the four boys with the intent of killing them.

I thought the film was put together awkwardly and Abigail Breslin couldn't handle the role. She was completely unconvincing which may also be the fault of the director.

Guide: No f-bomb, sex, or nudity.
