Sometimes the Good Kill is a 2017 thriller film directed by Philippe Gagnon and written by Barbara Kymlicka. The movie features an ensemble cast, including Susie Abromeit, Amanda Brugel, and Allison Hossack. The movie revolves around three nuns, Sister Judith (Abromeit), Sister Martina (Brugel), and Sister Rose (Hossack), who work as nurses in a remote clinic in the Peruvian jungle. They lead a peaceful life administering medical care to the local community until one day, they witness a violent act committed by a group of drug traffickers.

In fear for their lives, the nuns reach out to a former military operative turned mercenary, Colton (Christian Slater), for help. Colton agrees to escort the nuns to safety but is killed in an ambush by the traffickers. With no other option, the nuns are forced to defend themselves and embark on a mission to eliminate the drug lords responsible for Colton's death.

The movie highlights the inner conflict of the nuns, who struggle to reconcile their vows of nonviolence with the need to take up arms against their enemies. The nuns are portrayed as unconventional heroines, who are willing to go to great lengths to protect those they care about.

As the story unfolds, the nuns face several challenges, including navigating through the jungle, outsmarting the drug lords, and overcoming their own fears and doubts. The tension builds up as the nuns get closer to their target, and the stakes become higher with each passing moment.

The movie is shot in a beautiful location, with stunning aerial shots of the Amazon rainforest. The stark contrast between the beauty of nature and the violence of the drug trade is well portrayed.

The performances by the lead actors are commendable, especially Susie Abromeit, who delivers a nuanced performance as Sister Judith. She balances the role of a compassionate nurse and a fierce warrior with ease. Amanda Brugel and Allison Hossack also do justice to their characters, bringing depth and sensitivity to their performances.

The movie's pacing is good, with enough action to keep the viewers engaged. The script is well-written, and the dialogues are crisp and impactful. The themes of female empowerment, faith, and morality are explored in a subtle yet profound manner.

Overall, Sometimes the Good Kill is a gripping thriller that is well worth a watch. The movie successfully blends elements of action, drama, and spirituality to deliver an entertaining and thought-provoking experience.
