Review: 2019.548 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: Just because no shots are fired doesn’t mean there’s no violence—it’s just martial-arts violence, including one giant mechanical scorpion.

Con: It’s just a pure fighting story with no character development, and since we know in advance she wins, there’s no tension either.
