This Intense Jason Momoa Thriller Is the New #1 Movie on Netflix

If you loved him in Game of Thrones, then you need to watch this all-new Jason Momoa flick.

We’re talking about Sweet Girl, which premiered on Netflix a few days ago. Despite its newness, the film has already claimed the number one spot on the streaming service’s list of most-watched movies. (It’s currently ranked ahead of The Loud House Movie, Vivo, The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf and The Kissing Booth 3.)

The action thriller follows a father named Ray Cooper (Momoa), who teams up with his daughter (Isabela Merced) to seek revenge on a pharmaceutical company. Not only is the business hiding a ton of secrets, but it’s also responsible for refusing proper medication for Ray’s dying wife.

“The past is like a dream. Images and feelings offer some truth about how we got here,” he says in the trailer. “Even if details have blurred with time.”

Netflix’s official synopsis reads: “Devoted family man Ray Cooper, vows justice against the pharmaceutical company responsible for pulling a potentially life-saving drug from the market just before his wife dies from cancer. But when his search for the truth leads to a deadly encounter that puts Ray and his daughter Rachel in harm's way, Ray’s mission turns into a quest for vengeance in order to protect the only family he has left.”

Sweet Girl was directed by Brian Andrew Mendoza (Braven). Other cast members include Adria Arjona, Justin Bartha, Amy Brenneman, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Raza Jaffrey, Lex Scott Davis and Michael Raymond-James.

Oh, how we’ve missed you, Jason.
