A woman suffering from intermittent explosive disorder sets out to find whoever is responsible for the murder of a man she went on a date with.
Jolt is a mediocre movie that is anything but electrifying. Despite Kate Beckinsale's presence, it fails to leave any lasting impression.
Starring as a woman with a medical condition that makes her basically act like the Hulk, Beckinsale plays Lindy Lewis, a lady who decides to have a social life by going on a date with Justin (Jai Courtney).
After meeting with him twice, Lindy starts to develop strong feelings for Justin. Their romance comes to an abrupt end when he is unexpectedly murdered.
Lindy decides to take matters into her hands by going after whoever killed Justin, making the decision to unleash her long-repressed anger on her trail of vengeance.
The story is not bad but Jolt suffers from poor execution. Beckinsale is a joy to watch any day but she can't save this film from being a drab and predictable affair.
The action scenes are terrible despite the slow motion used and the visual effects look cheap. The villain (when he does reveal himself) turned out to be exactly who I predicted.
This is a film that disappoints on almost every level and it's a shame that an action star of Beckinsale's caliber got a starring role in it.
