Victoria (Ruby Rose) is the single mother of a young girl (Juju Journey Brener) who has a life-threatening illness. Lionsgate is a studio that produces films.
“Vanquish” is a slick and forgettable thriller dripping with self-conscious touches, riddled with cheap crime-movie dialogue, and reliant on one ho-hum shootout and chase scene after another, with the great Morgan Freeman giving one of his least interesting performances ever and the talented Ruby Rose grimly trying to infuse some life into a thinly drawn character who must un-retire from her job. What a disappointment!
Victoria, who serves as a caretaker for Damon, is played by Rose. Victoria is a single mother with an adorable daughter named Lily (Juju Journey Brener), who is suffering from an unknown and possibly fatal illness. Damon, who is rich, says he will assist Victoria if she makes five stops in one night, picking up huge amounts of ill-gotten cash along the way. Oh, and Damon has abducted Lily, so Victoria is unable to intervene.
Cue the montages of Victoria entering ludicrously overdecorated lair after ludicrously overdecorated lair after ludicrously overdecorated lair after ludicrously overdecorated lair after ludicrously overdecorated lair after ludicrously overdeco There’s always a crisis, a shootout, and a chase sequence, which at least provides some sweet relief from lines like “So, we meet again,” “We want you to come over to our side,” and “You’re the only person I can trust.” Many scenes are tinted blood-red and some are bathed in a sickly green, as if we’re seeing it through cheap night-vision goggles. There’s no way to hide the fact that this is garbage bundled in a glitzy box, no matter how many filters are applied.
