McNamee’s portrayal might be the furthest from the unique Sonya, however that doesn’t make it any much less entertaining. Not like the remainder of the forged, Sonya is the one one who has to “earn” her powers. Is it a commentary on gender inequality? (Most likely not.) The film not less than retains the unique character’s central battle with Kano, her mortal enemy. Their backstory is way totally different right here, however they finally conflict, and it makes for one of many extra private fights of the movie. Plus, the best way McNamee portrayed Sonya lastly getting her powers felt cathartic.
