Bad writing. Girl gang leader to her gang: "we have to act like men. . . . we have to be ourselves." The only way a woman is going to front a mainstream action film is if she impersonates a man. Unless its directed by ava duvernay.

Without knowing much about the story before watching the film, found it engaging from the very early scenes to the twisty middle parts and the satisfying finish. In hind sight, it is a vehicle for the distinguished film makers to showcase the city of Chicago, its politics, policing, gun violence and diverse neighborhoods by spinning a heist which "come across to some viewers" as unlikely because it was carried out by a quartet of desperate widows, underdog of the underdogs in the society.

Better than expected. Thankfully no cliche bimbo moments. The only demerit to the plot is the absence of DNA testing, which is surprising, given that one of the scriptwriters was KU grad Gillian Flynn, who writes excellent psychological thrillers. It was, however, a fun watch.

Really really great cast with some really beautifully shot scenes of Chicago. Such a clunker. Slow pacing, uninteresting twists that knock you on the head to make sure you remember. Sometimes even reshowing you the part you might have forgotten. Don’t waste your time with this one.

Some quotes in IMDb. These are focused on Chicago politics:

Most people don't know what an alderman does... including a fair number of aldermen. It comes from the Old English, meaning "older man." When I was a younger man, Facebook... Back then, a face was something you tried never to forget.
The Mulligans have run the 18th ward for 60 years. My grandfather, my father. These days it's all about name recognition.
Nepotism isn't illegal. It's actually celebrated. This is Chicago.
You know how many shootings happened in this city last weekend alone?
Thirty-four! These people are killing each other! This is not where I wanna raise my children.
What are you gonna do? Work in a bank? Take the train downtown, punch a clock? This is your life! This is our life. It's what we do. Everyone has a fxcking sob story, most of them better than yours. So, if the idea is to be mayor one day, you'd better man the fuck up!

More on Chicago:

Alderman of this ward makes a $104,000 a year. ... But then you add in the juice, right? He gives his friend a contract for a new building, gets a kickback. Gives his brother a contract for construction. Hell, he give his mama a contract for construction. That man owns a piece of every fucking thing. The only people coming after him, they got cameras and microphones. People coming after us with guns.
I'm a proud sixth generation Chicagoan. We laugh louder, we work harder, we sleep to the rattle of the "L" train.
I always said he should burn in hell. But, hey, Chicago'll do.
Mom, you always say a gun is a girl's best friend.
Look around you. It's like Custer's Last Stand. It's kill or be killed. Now, listen to me, son. Listen, we made this city. We're not having it taken away from us
by people who come here illegally... or by people who can't stop, you know...
making babies. That means staying in power... at all costs. You got that?
