“Eva Marie has some weird line deliveries in this, but I assume that a lot of the takes were one and done. In truth, this movie isn’t about her talking — or screaming in a shrill blast of a voice as she decimates a room in anger — as it is about her kicking @ss. I can report that she does absolutely fine with that.” B&S About Movies
“…the film is filled with stupid moments and plot devices, such as Vasiliiv watching Fiona kicking the sh*t out of his goons and not shooting her. He also later tells his goons to bring her to him alive, which gives her one hell of an advantage in fighting them […] Zirilli did a decent job with Renegades, but he totally misses the mark here.” ★ Voices from the Balcony
Phoenix is available to watch free on Tubi where it is available.
