TV and Movies·Posted on Jul 16, 2021Fans Are Reacting To Netflix's "Gunpowder Milkshake," And It's The Girl Power Film We All NeededGet a milkshake and watch this movie.by Stan ShunpikeBuzzFeed ContributorFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink Gunpowder Milkshake just dropped on Netflix, and it has certainly lit a keg of gunpowder on the internet. REINER BAJO/STUDIOCANAL © 2021 This movie, headed by Karen Gillan, Lena Headey, Angela Bassett, Carla Gugino, and Michelle Yeoh, is the child of an action thriller and a chick flick. Our leading ladies are seen cracking bones, giving concussions, stabbing guts, and pumping bullets into baddies. Reiner Bajo / REINER BAJO/STUDIOCANAL Â© 2021 It's a gory lovefest that would definitely remind you of John Wick, but instead of a single guy using a library book to kill a dude, here you have 'librarians' doing the blood-letting. The internet is squealing in glee over this movie, and here we bring you some of those fan reactions. 1. Don't you love it when dynamic women form groups and then battle it out with the bad guys? Birds of Prey is an obvious name that comes to mind. yara @gaedisaster i love movies where the only reason for men's presence is to be k!lled, gotta be one of my favorite genres #gunpowdermilkshake 09:58 PM - 14 Jul 2021 Reply Retweet Favorite Twitter: @gaedisaster 2. Comparisons with John Wick were bound to happen. It's from the same tree that bore the fruit of John Wick but a different branch. And it tastes different. Maybe sweeter. Eric Italiano @ericitaIiano #GunpowderMilkshake is fucking rad. Like John Wick’s goofy slapstick cousin — similar vibe but takes itself nowhere near as seriously. Between this, Jumanji, and Guardians, Karen Gillan has solidified herself as a legitimate action star. 12:14 PM - 13 Jul 2021 Reply Retweet Favorite Twitter: @ericitaIiano 3. Let your eyes feast on these beautiful ladies doing slick moves and spraying bullets. tee @crazycrains it's the female rage in gunpowder milkshake (2021) for me 01:04 PM - 14 Jul 2021 Reply Retweet Favorite Twitter: @crazycrains 4. LGBTQ or straight, we all were excited to see this relation play out on the big screen. Quite interesting that both have played mothers to kings. robb @eternalthrones lena headey and angela bassett playing ex girlfriends in gunpowder milkshake so true 04:37 PM - 13 Jul 2021 Reply Retweet Favorite Twitter: @eternalthrones 5. Though the movie has only leading ladies, it appeals to everyone. The LGBTQ community is certainly relishing the same-sex relationships among the lead characters.

What makes Gunpowder Milkshake a delightful watch is also its multi-racial cast, which makes viewers of different communities feel involved. Lena March @MarchLena Finished Gunpowder Milkshake. Fantastic movie. Obviously because of the cast (look at the WOMEN!!!), but also because they killed and kicked so many men... ahhhh, a very delightful watching experience. 10/10. Highly recommend. 01:32 AM - 15 Jul 2021 Reply Retweet Favorite Twitter: @MarchLena Can you name off the cuff three big American movies that had an Asian woman in its leading role? Don't say Crazy Rich Asians. 7. The sheer star power that this movie projects at us is difficult to digest. Aiko Hilkinger 🍥 @aikohwrites #GunpowderMilkshake is out now on Netflix! The film follows a hitwoman (Karen Gillan) as she takes on a ruthless crime syndicate with the help of her distant mother (Lena Headey) and “aunts” (Michelle Yeoh, Angela Bassett and Carla Gugino) in order to save a young girl. 03:53 PM - 14 Jul 2021 Reply Retweet Favorite Twitter: @aikohwrites There were few moments in the film where I let out loud exclamations because watching all these thespians together on a single screen is too much talent in a small space. 8. Another bit that our LGBTQ community loved a lot. As I said earlier, this movie appealed to everyone. horny jail abolitionist @cyrilwoodcock Massive GUNPOWDER MILKSHAKE spoiler alert so look away if you don’t want it but this new Lena interview where she mentions… HER CHARACTER AND ANGELA BASSETT ARE EXES LENA AND ANGELA DOING LESBIANISM TOGETHER OH MY GOD THAT WAS MY CRACK HEADCANON FOR THE MOVIE AND IT’S REAL 05:49 PM - 12 Jul 2021 Reply Retweet Favorite Twitter: @cyrilwoodcock 9. Hah! A poke at how Netflix came up with this weird name. Well, it's nice that they came up with this weird name, as it was that that caught Karen's attention. everett byram @rad_milk netflix picking the names for their movies “velvet buzzsaw” and “gunpowder milkshake” 02:38 AM - 15 Jul 2021 Reply Retweet Favorite Twitter: @rad_milk 10. John Wick is not the only one who knows how to kill in a library. We have a bunch of librarians here doing the job. Should we ask for a John Wick and Gunpowder Milkshake crossover? eloise @violentdlight no thoughts just the gunpowder milkshake library fight sequence 10:02 AM - 15 Jul 2021 Reply Retweet Favorite Twitter: @violentdlight 11. The lighting, color scheme, and style made this film a delicacy for the eyes. Slaughtering bad guys is fun to watch if done under neon light. Apurv Gedam @Samurainight07 #GunpowderMilkshake is FREAKING AWESOME. I enjoyed this movie so much. It’s got so much style. Kept me hooked till the end. Just had a smile on my face throughout. @karengillan is the ultimate action star. Seek this movie ASAP. I need a sequel. 05:30 PM - 15 Jul 2021 Reply Retweet Favorite Twitter: @Samurainight07 12. 2021 is half over. Pretty sure this will be one of the best action thrillers of 2021. Zach Pope @popetheking #GunpowderMilkshake is JUST AWESOME. The film is not just one of the best ACTION FILMS of 2021, but just flat out one of the most entertaining. It’s fantastic tone, vibrancy, blood/guts & of course all of the fantastic ladies here. Karen Gillian owns this film.

Matt Neglia @NextBestPicture Drenched in style, neon lights, bullets & blood GUNPOWDER MILKSHAKE is the most badass movie I’ve seen this year so far. Karen Gillan owns every second of her role as an assassin on the run & she’s backed by a dynamite cast of strong & powerful women.

Angela Bassett smashes the heads of bad guys. You go, Queen. Will Spencer📽 @Will_Spencer3 I have yet to see Gunpowder Milkshake, but I am am aware that Angela Bassett ostensibly does this at some point during the film- so it's an automatic 10/10 for me. Sorry, that's just the way it is. 12:00 AM - 12 Jul 2021 Reply Retweet Favorite Twitter: @Will_Spencer3 20. It seems that the leading ladies didn't have to make much effort to bring humor and chemistry to the film.
