First Glance: “Sweet Girl”

Netflix continues it’s steady stream of new trailers with its upcoming action thriller “Sweet Girl”. The film stars Jason Momoa and marks the feature film directorial debut for Brian Andrew Mendoza. The new trailer reveals a story laced with big corporate conspiracies and government cover-ups. Oh, and there’s also quite a bit of action which is something Momoa should be able to handle with ease.

He plays Ray Cooper, a shattered and grieving husband who has just lost his wife to cancer. He finds out that in an effort to drive up prices a shady pharmaceutical company pulled a drug off the market that doctors believe could have saved his wife. Ray sets out to hold them accountable but discovers a far deeper conspiracy. He also learns that both the government and the corporations will do ANYTHING to keep it quiet. Ray’s priorities quickly turns to protecting his daughter (Isabela Merced) and he will do ANYTHING to keep her safe. I like the look of this and Momoa can be a force. I’m not sure it needed the Guns N’ Roses needle drop but that’s okay.

“Sweet Girl” premieres August 20th on Netflix. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.

  1. Looks good and I like Momoa’s narration. You’re right, GnR song in there seems out of place. I will be seeing this one. I like the message of people fighting back against Big Pharma.
