★★★★ review by Keith Garrett on Letterboxd
Any movie that features Salma Hayek uttering the line "Tell him he can lick my balls" is a winner in my book.
★★★★½ review by Rich Strahs on Letterboxd
The screen is black, incomprehensible screams are heard. The blackness fades and we see a visibly shaken, nude Salma Hayek enter a bathroom with a black and white checkered floor. Everly (Salma Hayek) stumbles to retrieve a gun from behind the toilet. Everly, still physically shaken holds the gun to her head with the barrel covered by her black mane. A short moment later a gunshot is heard and we see Everly victoriously walk out of the bathroom and a man shot dead in her apartment. This is the first few moments of EVERLY.
I really love this movie. It plays out like a video game, random assasisns from all walks of life come to kill Everly. Do they succeed? That is for you to find out! Turn off whatever movie you are watching, find this movie and press play. You will not be disappointed in this high action movie.
I bet you are still watching whatever it is you were watching when you started reading this review. STOP that movie and put THIS ON!!!!

Not quite as good the second time, but still absolutely bonkers.
★★★½ review by Brundle Fly on Letterboxd
Imagine if, rather than Beatrix Kiddo seeking out the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad, she stayed at the church and they each came for her instead. Amplify it's absurdity and violence, while swapping Uma Thurman for Salma Hayek.
You more or less have Everly.
And you definitely have a good time.
★★★½ review by Travis McNinja on Letterboxd
With its erratic pacing, cringe-worthy dialogue and plot developments, and narrow-minded settings, Everly will turn off many a potential movie-goer. But for those who stick around may just find a perfectly enjoyable, witty, focused grindhouse-era actioner that wears its grindhouse roots more prominently than others.
