Geek Girl Riot is all about the action this week (and always). We get you ready & fired up for Outside the Wire before throwing it back to some other action movie picks.

Outside the Wire
Netflix has been killing it with action movies and they’re dropping a fired up addition tomorrow. Outside the Wire takes us to the near future where US drone pilot Lieutenant Harp (Damson Idris) is sent to a high-conflict military outpost to serve under Captain Leo (Anthony Mackie) who’s an AI super-soldier. Sherin says: “Mackie and Idris play well off each other. The characters are well defined, which makes you feel good about taking this frenetic journey with them.” While Julian calls it: “A fun ride for two hours—with a nice mystery to it.” Our Rioters get you hyped for this thrill-ride with a teaser of what to expect.

Discovering New Music + Project Power
Our dynamic duo show some love to the YouTube series Twins Reacts, where two brothers listen to some old school music for the first time. Then our Rioters dive into Project Power, Netflix’s action/superhero movie about a new drug that grants each user a different superpower for five minutes of fiery chaos. They tell you why this movie needs to be on your binge-list. (read Julian’s review) 

The Old Guard vs. Warrior Nun (and there’s no contest)
There’s really no excuse if you haven’t seen The Old Guard on Netflix yet (we won’t tell…but we’re gonna need you to go watch it now). Sherin, Philip, Alex, and Monique jump on to break down the characters, the storytelling, and the fantastic action scenes. Our Rioters then take a breath and sigh, loudly, because they have to talk about Warrior Nun’s disability dismissal and it’s often ridiculous issues.
