Review: EverlyÂ (2015)Â
EverlyÂ is one of the best universally reviewed films in recent episodes by the entire grue-crew. The film contains kick-ass action, wacky characters and a break-neck pace making the film an early favorite for 2015. Joe Lynch nails the film in gore, tone and humor. Salma Hayek heats up the screen, oh, my. “Bonzai, ball” – Everly. “That not a ball!” – killer, chasing dog down the hall. [[ BOOM ]] See it! You’ll love it!
