Consensus: Mary Elizabeth Winstead does reliably gripping work in the title role, but Kate is disappointingly derivative of numerous other female assassin films.

Look, we get it, people are looking for new stuff to watch, mindless escapism included. Still, in terms of any sort of inspiration or originality, "Kate," the movie, is every bit as D.O.A. as Kate, the character.

The life expectancy for most of the unfortunate henchmen in Kate is instantly reduced to about a second or so once they run into the titular anti-hero of Cedric Nicolas-Troyan's ultra-slick, frenzied, hand-to-hand combat action ballet.
