Jolt

Amazon Prime Video’s latest movie Jolt was released on the popular OTT platform but it didn’t turn out to be as amazing as people thought it to be. The new action-comedy movie has released its official trailer and there is an obvious desire to watch the movie. 

Released on 3 June 2021 and directed by Tanya Wexler, this movie revolves around Lendy Lewis and his mental disorder. Director Tanya has tried to put forward another superhero kinda movie but we are okay with Marvel. Dans are seemingly joking after watching the star cast in action. The film is filled with action and comedy with a little bit of weirdness.

When the movie released the official trailer on Youtube, one can clearly understand the whole plot within those few minutes. It’s a thing in today’s movie that the creator doesn’t even pay attention to its official Trailer. The trailer wasn’t that exciting and it didn’t even make sense to watch the movie. For a big entertainment geek like me, even though I love watching unique movies, this doesn’t make me much interested in it. 

In this article, we’ll check out the movie and also review it. This article will save your time and help you to understand the movie in a better way. 

The popular superhero series, Black lightning got another part, and fans are eagerly waiting to watch it. If you remember then this famous DC comic superhero once used to be so famous among the children. The franchise has come back for another series and you should definitely take a look.

Jolt: Action-Comedy Movie

Jolt

Jolt is an American Comedy movie that was released on 3 June 2021 on Amazon Prime Video. The movie centers on a female character named Lindy Lewis which is played by Kate Beckinsale. After giving birth to an Explosive disorder girl, Lindy’s parents were unable to control her. Her over-exploitation behavior sometimes led to big harm to others, that’s why the firm sent her into the army.

Moreover, Lindy’s behavior started to get out of hand and now it became a matter of subject. It was decided to take further action for her aggression and needed it to control. Lindy also hired a therapist and he asked her to go on a date in order to take some more experiments regarding his aggression. Dr. Ivan believes that if she has the ability to go on a date and turns it successfully then she will also be able to have a healthy relationship in her life. 

By mutually deciding, Ivan asked her to go on a date with Justin. On the very first date, she beats the waitress and leaves in embarrassment. But the second date with Justin Becomes successful.

Jolt: Film Review

Jolt

The action-comedy movie, Jolt is already released on Amazon Prime Video. As the movie starts, within 5 minutes you can think that this movie will have an amazing story till the end.

As the story takes off with the narration about the main cast, Lindy, and her mental disorder. The girl was suffering from intermittent explosive disorder which makes her quite impulsive and aggressive. Her Aggression can lead to some kind of extra Violent and Powerful powers which is not less than a superhero. The story is predictable and doesn’t excite the audience much. 

Also, the offbeat narration of the movie doesn’t do any justice in the overall story. Talking about the cast, Kate Beckinsale has shown her potential again and her fans are more than happy to see her again in the main look.

Moreover, the director has done a decent job in making the story look interesting but we don’t want another superhero. Lindy, who has the power to make anyone kill, has also fantasized about killing her therapist too. Her flashbacks give her electric shock (or you can say Jolt). The movie makes you laugh with its action and all the fantasies that Lindy thinks in his head. The movie is fun but not that great to make the audience fall in love.
