Jul 23 2021, 7:43 pm

Let’s celebrate making it to another weekend by highlighting what’s worth watching on Amazon Prime Video in Canada.

The streaming platform has released a Kate Beckinsale-led Amazon Original about a revenge-fuelled rampage and a series following a DC superhero.

Coupled with older titles that were released earlier in July, there’s no shortage of stuff to check out on Amazon all weekend.

Jolt (Amazon Original)

Jolt is a darkly funny action-thriller centring on Lindy (Kate Beckinsale), a beautiful, sardonically funny woman struggling to manage a lifelong, rare neurological disorder that causes her to react violently to anyone she witnesses being cruel, deceitful or abusive. To control her slightly murderous anger-management problem, Lindy uses an electrode-lined vest to shock herself back to normalcy whenever she gets homicidal. After the first guy she’s ever fallen for is murdered, she goes on a revenge-fuelled rampage to find the killer while the cops pursue her as their chief suspect.

Based on DC Comics and created by Johns and Lee Moder, the series follows high school student Courtney Whitmore, portrayed by Brec Bassinger, who discovers the cosmic staff and becomes the inspiration for a new generation of superheroes who become the Justice Society of America.
