Kate Beckinsale is handed a rather…electric role in the new action thriller “Jolt” which is set to premiere on Amazon Prime streaming near the end of this month. The first trailer dropped recently and we learn pretty quick that Beckinsale’s character Lindy isn’t someone you mess with. She has some rather severe anger issues which tends to get her into trouble. It’s also tough for the people around her, like the poor schlub who makes the mistake of eating a sandwich and invading her space on the subway. I’m guessing he’s not chewing much at all after their encounter.
The only way Lindy can control her bad temper and violent tendencies is through a peculiar form of shock therapy prescribed to her by Stanley Tucci. But when her boyfriend is murdered Tucci’s electrified meds can’t stop her from seeking revenge. The killer supporting cast includes Jai Courtney, Bobby Cannavale, Susan Surandon, Laverne Cox, and David Bradley. I’m a Beckinsale fan and the “Underworld” star knows her way around action movies. So this could end up being a lot of fun. We won’t have to wait long to find out.
“Jolt” premieres July 23rd on Amazon Prime. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
