CRITICS RATING:

3/5 Stars

WHAT IT'S ABOUT:

Lindy, a young woman, struggles with anger issues after being diagnosed with a neurological condition. Her life turns upside down when her lover gets murdered, and she sets out to avenge his death.

WHAT THE CRITICS THOUGHT:

Like fun, wacky action comedies? Give it a shot. Are you a woman whose hormones have pushed your anger levels into a realm where you feel you can't control them? This film might speak to you - as it did to me - in surprising ways. - Alexandra Heller-Nicholas, ABC Radio (Australia)

Altogether, this is flyweight fun. - Leslie Felperin, Guardian

Jolt is unabashedly silly, sloppily written, and overly reliant on the likability of Kate Beckinsale, Stanley Tucci, and Jai Courtney. But it's also breezily entertaining. - Roxana Hadadi, Polygon

An action-packed, sci-fi adjacent dark comedy that leaves a lot to be desired in its neon-soaked wake. - Tomris Laffly, RogerEbert.com
