The Movie Isle Reviews MOLLY

Molly is the real deal.

If you are in constant search for that low budget genre film. The one that surprises you in the way that El Mariachi did. Something that will continually surprise you in the way that it brazenly pulls offset piece after set piece. Molly is the film that you’ve been looking for. The post-apocalyptic actioner announces directors Colinda Bongers and Thijs Meuwese arrival as a creative force to be reckoned with.

Set years after a nondescript Apocolypse, Molly (Julia Batelaan) a scavenger constantly on the move to survive has been targeted by a group sadistic men intent on making her the center of their entertainment. Though they may try Molly is more powerful than even she can imagine. Their violent attacks on Molly and a young girl she takes in causes memories and unimaginable powers to be unlocked. With the men taking her young charge Molly has no choice than to take names and kick some ass.

The most unexpected joy from Molly is its action. The action designed by Youval Kuipers, Rouke Pouw, and Ticho Welchen is designed to be not only unexpectedly impactful but brutal and messy in the best most artful way possible. Directors Bongers and Meuwese know exactly how to tell a story within the action both in micro and macro. Using extended long takes (with the aid of some clever VFX work) the trio have created set pieces that go beyond just brazen but to a fever pitch level.
