5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing movie! Jan. 20 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Don't miss this movie. The cast and acting is first-rate. The plot is perfectly muddled. The cinematography is, at times, breathtaking. This becomes more noticeable with subsequent viewings, with brilliant long takes flawlessly performed and shot. It is a real gem. "Do you ever miss the doll hospital?"

Some oddities, however. I believe it was the beginning of June 2013 when I pre-ordered it. Amazon released it November 19th 2013, if I remember correctly, and I received it days later. Yesterday I noticed on tribute.ca that the movie has yet to be released here in Canada, the release date being January 28th (2014). I may be arrested.

Anyways, lucky me. I have seen it at least eight times. See it! I challenge you each to try your best to dislike it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprising & Surreal Oct. 19 2013
By Hopefully Helpful - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A few minutes after a startling and memorable opening sequence I started to wonder where Violet & Daisy was going.

Then, somewhere towards the end of its first third, things started to turn. The characters, the language and even the style of the piece evolved and landed the characters (and me) in a number of unexpected and poignant places. The film also stayed with me days after it ended and that was the last thing I expected to happen. Violet & Daisy packs heat but it also packs an emotional Trojan horse.

The imagery, editing and sound design are of a stylized and seamless universe. The use of symbolism (I'm still processing some of it) is something rarely seen in films these days - especially in those about hip young criminals coming of age.

I've always liked many of the actors in the cast but I never imagined that they would appear in the same film. (The ensemble is just one of the odd and intriguing elements at play here.) All of the actors delivered and did so with performances that were stark departures from their previous roles. Saoirse Ronan is funny, Alexis Bledel is psychotic and James Gandolfini is, in what might be his greatest film role of all, nothing short of sublime. Veterans like Danny Trejo and Marianne Jean-Baptiste are delightful, as are rising stars Tatiana Maslany and Cody Horn.

With Violet & Daisy, some have drawn comparisons to movies like Hanna, Kick-Ass and Sucker Punch. Those comparisons seem misplaced. Violet & Daisy reaches for something very different from those films and succeeds quite daringly.

I took a chance and was quite pleased.

5.0 out of 5 stars YOU DON'T NAME PIGS ON A SAUSAGE FARM Nov. 10 2013
By The Movie Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Imagine if you will a universe where Katy Perry and Taylor Swift are paid hitmen working for Danny Trejo in another cameo role. Violet (Alexis Bledel) and Daisy (Saoirse Ronan) are downright enjoyable in this quirky dark comedy. This is a genius indie designed to give you a Merrillee Rush. Violet and Daisy come across an easy hit (James Gandolfini) which causes them to examine their lives...one where they met as doll surgeons and life is about a Barbara Sunday designer dress.

Some lines from the film:

About the number one killer: "He once killed 3 ninjas with a fingernail file."
Violet theology: "Heaven is a place...where everything is free or at least wholesale."
And "Everything is a test when you are a career woman."

Excellent musical score using classical rock tunes to give them new meaning.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

Written by Geoffrey Fletcher, the first African-American to win an Oscar for best adapted screenplay - "Precious."

5.0 out of 5 stars Prepare yourself to be entertained! Nov. 19 2013
By GJW; Florida - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
As I watched this film, I thought it might just end up a cult classic. Alot of people get shot, mostly by the two young female assassins, there is blood but not much gore if any. No nudity, but there is a bit of bad language. The movie is not fast paced, but steady. However, when people start getting shot the pace kicks into high gear real fast. This movie never lost my attention from beginning to end. The drama created by the two assassins and their intended victim is actually quite wonderfull, considering the subject matter. I suggest you watch this one and make up your own mind. I believe you will be quite satisfied that you did. Parts of this movie tend to stick in your mind well after the end credits roll. Besides the drama there is some humor and perhaps even tears for the viewer, so prepare yourself to be entertained.

3.0 out of 5 stars I did like this but it's not a typical assassin movie. Don't go in expecting a shoot-em up action fest. I say B. Oct. 18 2013
By Tony Heck - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
"I know we gotta off him 'cause that's what we gotta do, but I don't want to do it until I know why he wants us to do it." Violet (Bledel) and Daisy (Ronan) are young girls who are best friends and assassins. When they see dresses they want they decide to take one more job in order to be able to pay for them. What is supposed to be a quick one shot one kill job becomes complicated when they start to talk to their mark. They start to become involved in his life and that changes their feelings about what they are supposed to do. There are some movie I watch based on the subject. Some I watch based off the cast. Then there are movies I watch because of one person. I have been a huge James Gandolfini since the first episode of The Sopranos. The movie on its own is pretty good and I did like it, but it's not a typical assassin movie. Do not go in expecting a shoot-em up action fest. This deals with more of a conversation between the three about why killing is the right thing to do. The assassins don't want to and the mark wants them to. Different but I liked it. Overall, not a typical assassin movie but worth seeing, especially for Gandolfini. I give it a B.
