    Violet & Daisy won’t be everyone’s cup of tea... But view this as a modern comic book/fairy tale, and it’s easier to accept this saga of girls with guns and the life lessons they eventually confront.

    A twisted, spirited exercise in stark juxtaposition, a grindhouse fairy tale of sorts that pairs the sugary sweet with the nastily violent.

    Gandolfini's quietly magnificent performance is the only reason to see Violet & Daisy.

    So self-conscious that it alienates the viewer early and often.

    While the film has an appealingly dreamy, summer-in-New-York look and a pleasantly languorous rhythm, it gives the actors very little to do and the audience almost nothing to care about.

    Gandolfini scoops up another chance to show off the gentleness he left at home during six seasons of “The Sopranos.”

    This disoriented drivel was written by — and marks the directing debut of — Geoffrey Fletcher, who won an Academy Award for writing "Precious." It’s weird, but not in a good way.

    That was an exceptionally clever film.
    If you aren't paying attention you will completely miss what is really happening.

    Lets just say
    that any critic who complained about the semi-emotionless acting of the girls or the seemingly unconnected dream sequences completely missed the real story. Expand

    Truly amazing action sequences, Violet & Daisy absolutely delivers great sweet bonding, and positive messages about friendship, the plot was interesting and the acting was really good, I had a great time while watching this movie, I highly recommend it to any one who is willing to have fun!

    I loved Violet & Daisy it is sweet but solid, it has a lot of blood and intense scenes, it never gets boring it is always interesting, but it is imperfect, it has some glitches in the plot that you would pass them easily, for example the plot is silly, that they want dresses, but the acting is great and the execution is really good.

    Late James Gandolfini won't mind a chessy-action flick after his death, would he? Violet And Daisy is a corny movie starring Saroise Ronan yeah, THAT girl from The Host and another chick. It's a story about two sisters and their job of assassins with a mild taunt mission to hunt down a mega criminal played by Gandolfini. Let me get this straight- Violet And Daisy is FUN. Just awesome, Bourne and Taken with Superbad type FUN. It's jarring and violent with a hyper speed that's pumping till the end. Collapse

    The only reason to watch VIOLET AND DAISY is if you are very fond of the three lead actors. Otherwise the tedium and lack of believability make it difficult to watch through to the end. Find another way to say goodbye to James Gandolfini. Expand
