But -- and this is a heavy but -- if you actually bother to take the time to watch Rogue, you might find yourself having a good time despite yourself.
Or not. But I did, and I don't really give a rats ass what you think anyway. Hit me up at email@example.com if this offends you, snowflake.
Fox (who still looks amazing, by the way. Yup. I'm a filthy conservative. Feel free to complain at the above email) heads a mercenary band hired to rescue a governor's daughter from human traffickers. Things go wrong during the escape, and the team is forced to hunker down at an abandoned lion farm, where big cats are raised to be hunted on game reserves.
Naturally, the farm wasn't so much abandoned as one of the cats got out and ate everyone. And now it wants to eat the mercenaries.
Rogue surprised me on a number of levels. For one, Fox is far better than I thought she'd be. I actually think she pulled off the mercenary part. I know, I know. Secondly, this is as much an action picture as it is a horror movie. So we got lots of gunfights and stuff blowing up AND there's a man-eating lion. It's essentially a perfect B-movie that way.
So hot chick, killer lion, shooting, and stuff blowing up. If you've been paying attention to our show the last decade, you know this is our thing. Which is why I'm giving it a Good. Rogue isn't a classic, but it's perfect mind-numbing entertainment on a Friday night, and that's all I ask of any movie.
