Jessica Alba ‘Trigger Warning’ Hits Rock-Bottom Reviews

Jessica Alba’s latest venture into the action-packed realm of Netflix, “Trigger Warning,” seems to have set off alarms of its own, but not in a good way.

While critics and audiences often clash in their opinions, few expected the film to fare worse than recent critical disappointments.

Jennifer Lopez’s sci-fi flop “Atlas” garnered a meager 18% approval rating from critics and a slightly more forgiving 45% from audiences on Rotten Tomatoes. This marked a disappointing start for Lopez in the genre, but it appears Alba’s “Trigger Warning,” directed by Indonesian filmmaker Mouly Surya in her English-language debut, has managed to sink even lower.

Comparisons have been drawn to Zack Snyder’s “Rebel Moon Part II: The Scargiver,” a film lambasted for its lackluster storytelling and shallow execution, landing at 15% among critics and scraping up a marginal 48% with audiences. Critics like myself haven’t minced words in describing Snyder’s efforts, labeling them as “tedious, derivative, and implausible beyond belief,” prompting questions about the director’s creative choices.

Yet, despite the dismal reception of “Rebel Moon Part II,” “Trigger Warning” has somehow plummeted to new depths. Currently standing at an abysmal 0% on Rotten Tomatoes, with a paltry 20% approval from audiences, the film has raised eyebrows across the industry.

Critics and viewers alike are expressing disbelief at the film’s poor performance, with many speculating whether early reviews will improve once more opinions are shared. As “Trigger Warning” becomes available for streaming on Netflix, it remains to be seen if the tide will turn for Jessica Alba’s ambitious foray into the action genre.

While the initial reception may be disheartening, the film industry is known for its unpredictable twists and turns. Whether “Trigger Warning” will defy the odds and find its audience remains uncertain, but one thing is clear: in the competitive landscape of streaming entertainment, every release is a gamble, and not always a winning one.
