What to know

critics consensus

In spite of a crackling premise and a star who's always ready for action, Jolt never manages to deliver much more than a mild buzz. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

Lindy is a beautiful, sardonically-funny woman with a painful secret: Due to a lifelong, rare neurological disorder, she experiences sporadic rage-filled, murderous impulses that can only be stopped when she shocks herself with a special electrode device. Unable to find love and connection in a world that fears her bizarre condition, she finally trusts a man long enough to fall in love, only to find him murdered the next day. Heartbroken and enraged, she embarks on a revenge-filled mission to find his killer, while also being pursued by the police as the crime’s prime suspect.

  • Like fun, wacky action comedies? Give it a shot. Are you a woman whose hormones have pushed your anger levels into a realm where you feel you can't control them? This film might speak to you - as it did to me - in surprising ways.

  • "Jolt" isn't prestige cinema, but it is far smarter than its exploitation trappings. Wexler and Beckinsale truly make a meal of the gender flip that is sending a woman to wreak bloody havoc in revenge for the murder of a sweet, nerdy hunk.

  • I enjoyed it, and I love to see Kate Beckinsale getting to show off how funny she can be.

  • At one point Lindy blames her problem on cortisol, the hormone that triggers the flight-or-fight response. The ending suggests a possible sequel. If my money was involved, I'd choose the flight option.

  • Jolt is unabashedly silly, sloppily written, and overly reliant on the likability of Kate Beckinsale, Stanley Tucci, and Jai Courtney. But it's also breezily entertaining.

    July 24, 2021 | Full Review…
  • An action-packed, sci-fi adjacent dark comedy that leaves a lot to be desired in its neon-soaked wake.

  • If you like the Underworld movies because you like watching Kate Beckinsale run around in leather, sure... but there's no depth to the story or interest to the characters.

    July 31, 2021 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • With uninspired action scenes and a lackluster screenplay, Jolt just isn't jolt-worthy.
