Sweet Girl | Official Trailer | Netflix - YouTube

  1. Sweet Girl

IMDB Rating: Unavailable

Where to Watch: Netflix

Don’t be fooled by the title of the film. No, it’s not a teenage drama. Instead, it’s a story of a blue-collar family man who vows to bring justice to the people responsible for his wife’s death while protecting the only family he has right now, his daughter. It’s quite similar to Netflix’s man-on-the-run thriller, Beckett. Though the film is predominantly action-packed and is overly edited, it does have its fair share of sweet surprises. Watch the film for Jason Mamoa.
