    Characters faced nearly 0 struggle but they keep saying they worked hard. I wished there was more obstacles to feel for them when they are the top. I hope I will forget that movie soon.

    Entretenida, para pasar el rato, relata de forma interesante como se mueve la delincuencia en barrios bajos, a pesar de sus muchas fallas, el elenco sólido rescata la película.

    The Kitchen is somewhat entertaining but feels like a wasted opportunity. A crime drama that features fairly one dimensional characters and a story that never really grips. The Kitchen in question is Hell's Kitchen in New York. In the year 1978 the Irish mob run the area. When three of the leaders are sent to jail, their wives take over the business. Of course they face many obstacles, but notably sexism. The three leads are all very talented, Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish and Elizabeth Moss. But they don't have much to work with here. The film never hits hard as a dramatic piece and the writing could have been better.

    I didn't watch initially due to reviews, but after watching I loved the performances. It really illustrates how women were, and still are to some extent, marginalized when their men weren't there to protect them. When these women demonstrated they could run things better than the men and take care of themselves, they were harassed and threatened with death. I really enjoyed the movie, especially considering McCarthy & Haddish are known for predominantly for their comedy. Saw another side to their talents.

    Was this directed by a child? Good actors, decent story, but horribly directed. Story disjointed and no character development.. corny waste of time

    Wasn't terrible, but ain't the best either. I think Melissa McCarthy and Tiffany Haddish should stick to their specialty in comedic roles. Elisabeth Moss's acting in this film was a surprise to me. The role of a woman with a difficult life wanting to be loved was sad to watch. The title was a little misleading, as it is about the city of Hell's Kitchen, not about a kitchen.

    Well acted and quite interesting. I love that DC Comics is willing to take risks and adapt things like this. The characters are engaging and the story strong.

    I had hope for this one but, no. It's really hard to put a comedian in a serious role, isn't it? It started out good but then we have to imagine Melissa as a bad ass. Doesn't work for me. With shootings, killings, missing people (you know because when you cut up a body in the bath tub you'll never find it) etc, no police involved in this one. Glad I didn't pay to see it.
