She’s back and she’s set to wreak more havoc in this sequel from the duo of Matt Angel and Suzanne Coote.

It’s been two years since Becky avenged her father’s death by killing a band of Neo-Nazis. Now 16, she had escaped from the foster system over and over again. However, a year ago, she met an elderly woman, Elena, and she decides to help take care of her. Working as a waitress at the local diner part-time, Becky still trains now and again in the skills she used to destroy her father’s murderers and she still gets occasional nightmares about her father.

A news report heard about a group called “The Noble Men”, who are planning to come to town soon for a meeting with City Hall. When three members of the group go to the diner where Becky works, their attempt to harass her fails and the trio decide to follow her and scare her. However, one of the members makes the mistake of killing Elena and orchestrates a plan to teach Becky a lesson by kidnapping her dog. Learning of their location, Becky is now ready to seek revenge for Elena’s death and get her dog back and she soon finds something very shocking in the process.

Becky is back and while the sequel may seem a bit unexpected, it is great to see the now 16-year-old survivalist unleash her skills again and do what she did best in the original. The duo of Matt Angel and Suzanne Coote unleash Becky meshing the style of original film directors Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott (who serve as executive producers) and yet bring something very fresh to the mix where you can see this as both a sequel AND a standalone film.

Lulu Wilson is born to play the role. She did such an amazing job in the original and to see her return to this role just takes the cake. We get a glimpse of how in the opening of the film, she is taken in by a foster family and acts all sweet until her narration (which pops in sporadically) gives us her most innermost thoughts. Some of the best involve the viewer seeing what she wants to do to those who cross her path until she reveals “it’s only what she wanted to do”. These thoughts are so over the top but so much fun to enjoy!

Replacing Kevin James as the new big bad is Seann William Scott. Of course, he will forever be the iconic Stifler from the American Pie franchise and rarely has he had a chance to break against type. Bloodline, released in 2018, was his first foray to show he can play it serious and does a great job as a high school counselor who is a serial killer. Here, he brings that energy in the role of Darryl, the leader of the “Noble Men”, who is unaware of his underlings’ actions until Becky comes for them. This is clearly one of the Scott’s finest roles and add to the mix the character of Twig, a level-headed redneck of sorts played by the legendary Courtney Gains of Children of the Corn and Back to the Future fame. Director Angel himself gets in on the fun as one of the Noble Men, the typical “voice of reasoning” in Sean.

The Wrath of Becky is her take at channeling her inner John Wick but replacing guns (as she tells one of the Noble Men she finds them boring) with her choice of other various weapons and sheer intensity. Lulu Wilson and Seann William Scott are aces in this sequel! Definitely a must see of 2023!
