“Gunpowder Milkshake is not a movie for the thinkers. Itu0026#39;s not a movie that will make you leave the theatre reflecting on what you just saw. The story isnu0026#39;t inventive or impactful, the characters arenu0026#39;t particularly interesting and the dialogue is generic. Or… to put it simply: the writing does not standout… at all.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eHowever, if you know how to manage your expectations, you will have an absolute blast, because the movie gives us everything we could have wanted from an action-thriller. Itu0026#39;s stylish, beautiful, action-packed, violent and incredibly fun.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eDirector Navot Papushado and cinematographer Michael Seresin transform a generic script into a neon-filled blast, making smart uses of lighting, music, production design, make-up and color grading, creating the perfect atmosphere for such a videogamish movie. Scenarios such as the bowling alley and the library are also captivating, giving place to entertaining, expertly-choreographed, hyper-violent, creative action sequences… that unfortunately get worse as the movie progresses, but are pretty fun nonetheless.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIn conclusion, Gunpowder Milkshake isnu0026#39;t to be taken seriously. Itu0026#39;s fun, simple, violent, captivating and you will wish for more. Itu0026#39;s contrivances will certainly affect the more demanding watchers, but if you take the movie as seriously as the movie takes itself, you will have a great time at the theatre.”
