Ava review

As the film focuses on Ava Faulkner, a recovering alcoholic who works for an organisation that takes out high profile individuals, the audience felt emotionally detached from the movie. With an IMDb rating of 5.4/10, Ava failed to connect to the viewers. According to Vulture, the movie was described as "choppy, lifeless, predictable action scenes jutting up against unbaked, middle-school-theater-production-level family drama." They even added, "Nothing in Ava feels that calculated. It feels like a movie where everybody involved just gave up halfway through."
