Jolt is a 2021 action-comedy film starring Kate Beckinsale as Lindy, a woman with a rare neurological disorder that causes her to experience uncontrollable rage and violent outbursts. However, Lindy has found a way to control her anger: by using a device that sends electric shocks throughout her body whenever she starts to feel upset.

Despite managing her condition with the help of her therapist Dr. Munchin (Stanley Tucci), Lindy still struggles to form meaningful connections with others due to her condition. That is until she meets Justin (Jai Courtney), a man she forms a connection with and who seems to understand her in a way that no one else has.

Their budding romance takes a turn when Justin is murdered, and Lindy becomes the prime suspect in the investigation. Determined to clear her name and find out who is responsible for Justin's death, she sets out to take justice into her own hands.

The film follows Lindy as she goes on a revenge-fueled journey and takes on the people she believes are responsible for Justin's death. With each step, she unravels a complex web of conspiracy and corruption that goes deeper than she ever imagined.

Throughout the film, viewers will see Lindy engage in intense fight scenes, showcasing her impressive combat skills and physical strength. As she navigates through the criminal underworld, Lindy's witty humor and sarcastic personality keep the mood light, balancing out the film's more intense moments.

What's interesting about Jolt is that it plays with the idea of mental illness and how society often misunderstands and marginalizes those who suffer from it. In this case, Lindy's disorder is portrayed as something out of her control, but still, she is seen as a danger to society. The film presents a unique take on the topic by using it as a way to showcase the lead character's strengths and resilience.

Overall, Jolt is a fun and action-packed movie that delivers on both the action and comedy fronts. Kate Beckinsale shines as Lindy, bringing depth and a relatable edge to her character. With a strong supporting cast, led by Jai Courtney and Stanley Tucci, the film is a must-see for anyone who enjoys an adrenaline-fueled thrill ride with a healthy dose of humor thrown in.

Jolt is a 2021 action movie. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.6 and a MetaScore of 48.
