Low Key


There's Nothing Low-Key About Kate

The newish Netflix action film Kate stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead as an assassin in Japan, working for a mentor played by Woody Harrelson. It's full of tropes — the last job, the assassin who bonds with a young woman — but they worked for us.

It's got bright lights, rampant anime influences, and great music. We just wish there was a little less backstory and a little more of Kate fighting Yakuza henchmen.
