‘The Mother” is directed by Niki Caro (director of the live action “Mulan” remake) and written by Peter Craig (writer of “Top Gun: Maverick”), Andrea Berloff (writer of “Straight Outta Compton”) and Misha Green (showrunner for “Lovecraft Country”). Jennifer Lopez (“J.Lo”) stars as the titular mother (they never say her name in the movie), a deadly female assassin who comes out of hiding to protect the daughter that she gave up years before, while on the run from dangerous men.

J.Lo is known by most mainstream audiences for her romantic comedies. “The Wedding Planner,” “Maid in Manhattan,” “Monster-in-Law” and all of those classic, early 2000s romcoms that she used to make solidified her with fans as the romcom legend she is known as today. Even earlier this year, she had another romcom, “Shotgun Wedding,” which I actually did enjoy, release on Amazon Prime.
