Checkout Sheroes Movie

From a producer of “Spring Breakers” and “The Virgin self-destructions,” “Heroes” by writer/director Jordan Gertner takes us into the lives of four robber friends who visit Thailand for a hedonistic adventure. The quartet quickly goes over their heads when one of them is kidnapped by a notorious medicine lord. To action and protect themselves, each young woman brings unique skills in a heartbreaking action for survival. At least, it should be so.

With Isabelle Fuhrman (Ezra), Skai Jackson (Daisy), Sasha Luss (Diamond) and Wallis Day (Ryder) in the lead roles, “Sheroes” is another addition to the genre of road movies for girls like “Girls Trip” and the upcoming feature film “Joy Ride.”The concept alone means that this story can sometimes be fun. “Heroes” has fantastic stunts and beautifully captured landscapes, combined with a crude but sophisticated storyline with lines like “you’re going to use your vagina to get us out of here”, “F**k — because I’m a girl” or “this is not a game, and you’re not a Wonder Woman.”

But the plot of “Heroes” could have been fleshed out better to be more grounded and coherent. Sometimes it seems a little tedious until Daisy is kidnapped; at this point the pace increases and the plot becomes more interesting.

What would have happened if the only black character was part of the rescue team and not the one who was kidnapped? Skai Jackson is best known for being a Disney actress, and it would have been a nice surprise for her Fans to see her character kicking Daisy and taking names. However, this responsibility is left to the only white characters in the Film while portraying the damsel in distress.

The relationship problems between all the characters are only slightly touched and, in many matters, never completely resolved. For example, Daisy and Ryder meet before the kidnapping, but it goes like this… a connection. So when they confess their undying love for each other, you are giddy and confused about how they got there so quickly.

Jasper and Diamond have an attraction that also intensifies at warp speed due to the flat font, and although Ezra and Diamond have problems, this is never resolved either, except that Ezra apologizes for half the movie. At least Sasha Luss stands out as Diamond. She embraces Diamond’s complexity and clutter without apology, which makes her extremely fun to watch and the only character who feels whole.
