Critic Consensus: Mary Elizabeth Winstead does reliably gripping work in the title role, but Kate is disappointingly derivative of numerous other female assassin films.
Critic Reviews for Kate
Director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan makes great use of the Japanese setting and of newcomer Miku Patricia Martineau, who becomes Kate's unlikely local sidekick, but he might have done more with Woody Harrelson.
Kate gestures at being different, something fresh and subversive, but at the end of the day, it's just reheating old clichés.
Look, we get it, people are looking for new stuff to watch, mindless escapism included. Still, in terms of any sort of inspiration or originality, "Kate," the movie, is every bit as D.O.A. as Kate, the character.
The violence isn't quite ultra, but at least it adds some excitement to the otherwise lackluster script. Mary Elizabeth Winstead is a legit action star wasted by Netflix's Kate.
