‘Blondie Maxwell Never Loses’ presents a very dark world that doesn’t seem to be like that at first, but with every step and every action taken, one can see how tormented everything is, and how hard normal life becomes.
Blondie Maxwell is a private investigator who tries to earn a living and fights for making this world a better place. In a futuristic world where justice was fully liberalized, Blondie has to make her way to the top by catching the élite of bad people. But in this world, as one may expect, many problems occur, and Blondie has to tread lightly as there are evildoers everywhere.
The plot of ‘Blondie Maxwell Never Loses’ is set in the future, without exaggerating with flying cars and robots doing all the work, but a decent future where everything seems nice and friendly, and where humanity opted for a better way of self-defense, that comes in the form of fully liberal justice. This technique reminded us of old western movies, where the basis of all conflicts was similar to the one presented in Julien Ivanowich’s feature. The feeling of a futuristic western came within the first twenty minutes, as the narrative line followed a path familiar to us. Nothing too shady, nothing out-of-place, but when the first climactic moment came, it was foregrounded naturally for the viewer to understand the key of the feature film.
Léonie Langlart plays a stunning role, being the voice of justice you can hardly hear in front of a noisy crowd. She may easily be one of the best choices for a female James Bond, as she is outstanding at being the impeccable protagonist. Blondie Maxwell as a character is a combination of a mildly powerful Wonder Woman, combined with the frankness of one of Charlie’s Angels. As one may understand, it is hard to win every time, and she struggles to find the light at the end of the tunnel, sometimes being overwhelmed by the chaos that happens around her.
‘Blondie Maxwell Never Loses’ is one of the most engaging thrillers we’ve seen over the past couple of years, reason why we are more than delighted to witness feature films of this kind being produced today around the world. It brought back the pleasure of watching a movie being one hundred percent emotionally involved in the story, leaving us breathless, and almost wanting to applaud when the credits started rolling.
