Netflix has a brand new action flick starring Jason Mamoa, and we love it already. Named Sweet Girl, the movie is directed by Brian Andrew Mendoza and follows the story of a man who is in a war against a pharmaceutical company that – indirectly – caused the death of her life by preventing the patients from reaching a necessary drug to treat the disease. Mamoa leads the Sweet Girl cast while other crew members also do not fail us in delivering their parts successfully.
The movie was premiered on Aug.20 as it was planned initially, and immediately gained a positive reaction from us, the audience, as it was packed with action and good acting. As Netflix viewers love and demand action movies constantly, one may expect the platform to lower the quality of its production while focusing on the quantity of them. And yet, Sweet Girl proves that Netflix still knows how to do a basic action flick without falling into the trap of cliches. The Sweet Girl cast plays a big part in this since they all give themselves to their roles.
In this article, we will provide you with all the necessary information on the Sweet Girl cast, from their ages to partners. If you are a Netflix fan who never misses an action flick, then this is the article for you!
