One review

  • Call it Salma Hayek’s Kill Bill or Die Hard, Everly is an entertaining single-location, nightlong action romp that celebrates its B-movie status with verve and panache.

    Something bad has already gone down before we first see the naked and obviously manhandled Everly (Hayek) as she gingerly enters the bathroom, and something worse is about to unfold as the men are threatening to knock down the door to get her back inside to party some more. Within minutes, we’ve got an apartment littered with the bodies of dead Japanese gangsters, and a steady procession of armed guards and prostitutes out to collect the bounty that the mysterious and powerful Taiko (Hiroyuki Watanabe) has placed on Everly’s head. It seems Everly has been working as a prostitute for Taiko and the yakuza before she decided to snitch to a local police detective. Taiko, having held her in special regard, cannot let her betrayal pass. Everly will die that night, he promises, but he’ll let her daughter live long enough to work off her mother’s debt. Everly must now race against the clock to save her mother and her daughter while trapped in her apartment, which is fast becoming the destination spot for some pretty deadly players.
