Her super powers extend far beyond those of the mild-mannered gatekeeper whose job it is to flag cabs or sign for packages. Look! Up in the vestibule! It’s a guard! It’s a greeter! It’s Doorman! Ruby Rose makes her first big screen ascent since controversially relinquishing the role of TV’s Batwoman to star as Ali, a retired gunnery sergeant working the titular gig in an ancient New York apartment building just a few days away from undergoing a complete renovation. Unbeknownst to all but criminal mastermind Victor Dubois (an eminently perturbable Jean Reno), there's a fortune in stolen paintings safely stashed in the rafters of one of the units. October 11. Day 209 without a projected image, and damn if right about now, even a reasonably engaging one-location action-thriller with a tough and resourceful woman in the role generally reserved for Liam/Willis/Diesel doesn’t look good. Here’s hoping Rose’s encounter with DC was enough to forever sour her on lending her name to future comic book calamities. She has the poise and demeanor of an action star, can lambaste with the best of them, and doesn’t feel the need to punctuate each act of violence with inessential one-liners. She’s already caught the eye of Paul W.S. Anderson (Resident Evil: The Final Chapter). Here’s hoping she can take up permanent residence in his next franchise. See (2020) — Scott Marks
