Once again, last month, Amazon Studios returned with another movie, which has been well received by the audience so far. We are not talking about others, it is The Jolt movie starring actress Kate Beckinsale (from Serendipity). For those living under rock and roll, Shock is a 2021 American action comedy, adapted from a script by writer Scott Vassar and directed by the talented Tanya Wexler. In addition to Kate Beckinsale as the leading role, the film also starred Bobby Cannaval, Lavin Cox, Stanley Tucci and Jay Courtney. It was released by Amazon Studios on July 23, 2021.
Although the movie was well received by the audience, its ending still left many unanswered questions. It’s hard not to doubt certain plots… (spoiler alert). If you still want to know if Lindsey retaliated against her, please read on.
Bumpy Movie: Plot
Before we continue to end the explanation, we must understand the basic plot of the movie, on which the various (confusing) B plots are based. The protagonist of this movie is Lindy Lewis played by Kate Beckinsale. She plays a young woman diagnosed with intermittent explosive disorder. This caused us to furious, which made her family and friends feel very uncomfortable. Although her parents tried to institutionalize her because of her anger, she eventually signed up for the army because she felt it was a perfect way to vent her inner anger.
Biologically speaking, Lindy Lewis will suddenly get angry because her body’s cortisol levels are abnormally high, which in turn makes her stronger and faster than usual. Even the smallest offense can irritate her and cause a terrible outbreak. The army also failed to control her anger, and now she must find a new way to help stabilize herself. Of course, this led to a kind of self-managed shock treatment, which, although it almost cost her life, made her to some extent suitable for a normal life. This is a trailer for the movie, letting you understand the puzzling plot.
Well, putting aside these, let’s talk about the ending and the big question of whether she can get revenge. After treatment by the psychiatrist Dr. Munchin, Lindy lived somewhat of a normal life. She did a good job for herself, and then the trouble came. On the advice of Dr. Munchin, she dated a bar bodyguard named Justin. They are both in love and happiness. Unknowingly, Lindy received a call from the police to inform her that Justi was murdered.
All the anger is hidden inside her, and it is obvious that she has found a reason to vent and seek revenge. She wanted to find the murderer who killed Justin and hurt them at all costs, so she started her mission. In the end, the police hunt showed that Lindy must mislead the police officer in the Justin murder case and put the law in his own hands. Although the police officers tried to prevent Lindy from killing the murderer of Justin, she let them escape. The two police officers are detectives Vicar and Nevin. Before Lindy ran away, she stole Justin’s cell phone from the evidence room. Although Nevin and Vicar can be seen arguing about Lindy’s choice and expressing their conflicting opinions about the situation, on the other hand, Lindy forces Justin’s boss, Barry, to reveal the name of the murderer. Barry told her that his boss Gareth Fizel was involved in illegal business, which was ultimately related to Justin’s murder.
Just when he managed to catch Fitzel and confront him, the shocking secret was revealed. Justin never died, he used Lindy as a bait so that he could kill Fizer. He and Dr. Munchin participated in this transaction together, and this alone was enough to make Lindy angry again. In the end, she eliminated Justin and Dr. Munchin was arrested for malfeasance.
The last shot shows Lindy’s swollen face and eyes, thus setting the plot for another sequel.
