Trigger Warning: Jessica Alba’s New Netflix Movie Faces Rotten Tomatoes Backlash – Critics Are Not Impressed!

Los Angeles, California – Jessica Alba’s latest Netflix film, “Trigger Warning,” has faced heavy criticism from reviewers on Rotten Tomatoes since its release on the streaming service last Friday. In the movie, Alba plays Parker, a U.S. Special Forces commando who returns home after her father’s murder only to find herself tangled in a web of family drama and dangerous gang activity in her hometown.

Upon taking over her family’s bar, Parker reunites with her ex-boyfriend, who is now the sheriff, and his brother, both of whom are connected to a prominent senator. As she delves into the circumstances surrounding her father’s death, she discovers the presence of a vicious gang that complicates her investigation.

Rotten Tomatoes critics have not been kind to “Trigger Warning,” giving it a 26% “rotten” rating based on 19 reviews, with the audience score being even lower at 16% based on over 50 ratings. Critics have pointed out various flaws in the film, with some drawing comparisons to action movies like Sylvester Stallone’s “Rambo.”

While some reviewers acknowledge the film’s ability to maintain viewer engagement due to its slick presentation, others criticize its plot contrivances and lack of suspense-building. Director Mouly Surya’s direction has also been called into question for not effectively staging violent scenes or creating tension throughout the movie.

“Trigger Warning” signifies Alba’s return to the big screen after a five-year hiatus, with her last film appearance being in the 2019 action crime mystery “Killers Anonymous.” The movie, which also features Tone Bell and Gabriel Bosso, is exclusively available for streaming on Netflix.

Overall, the reception of “Trigger Warning” underscores the challenges faced by Alba in her comeback role and serves as a reminder of the critical importance of engaging storytelling and strong character development to captivate audiences. The mixed reviews highlight the subjective nature of film criticism and the diverse expectations that viewers bring to each viewing experience.
