All-time favorite film of female empowerment.

Figured it would be a lot more gory given the comments, but no, it was exactly what I was expecting. It wasn't over the top and didn't show unnecessary violence, in my opinion. Great film.

One of the most gory movies I have ever seen (from what I remember at least).
