If there’s one thing Mare Barrow knows, it’s that she’s different.

Mare Barrow’s blood is red—the color of common folk—but her Silver ability, the power to control lightning, has turned her into a weapon that the royal court tries to control.

The crown calls her an impossibility, a fake, but as she makes her escape from Maven, the prince—the friend—who betrayed her, Mare uncovers something startling: she is not the only one of her kind.

Pursued by Maven, now a vindictive king, Mare sets out to find and recruit other Red-and-Silver fighters to join in the struggle against her o…

Summary:
This is a world divided by blood – red or silver.

The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change.

That is, until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power.

Fearful of Mare’s potential, the Silvers hide her in plain view,…

The following review is entirely my opinion. I encourage you to comment but please be respectful. If you don't agree with my opinion that's completely ok. These reviews are not meant to be facts or endorsements. I am sharing my opinion and point of view when watching the film.


Summary:
As previously mentioned the story keeps in line with Austen’s original work. Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) is the second of five sisters in the English countryside. When the wealthy Mr. Bingley (Douglas Booth) falls for her elder sister Jane (Bella Heathcote), Elizabeth finds herself clashing with the condescending Mr. Darcy (Sam Riley). All the while their land and livelihood is constantly threatened by the walking dead.
Never in my  life have I felt more empowered as a woman. I was literally jumping out of the bed. Note well this is three o'clock in the morning, but who cares. I was the  zombie that was about to be slayed. I lived for the ending in this movie. Best spent h…
