Another was full of praise for the film and particularly loved its surprise twist ending. They wrote: "Watching #SweetGirl with Jason Momoa and that was a major twist that I didn't see coming. It looked like the typical movie: spouse dies, other spouse gets revenge, but this was not it. Love this movie."

A third echoed this, saying: "Why is no one talking about Sweet Girl on Netflix! One of the best plot twists I’ve seen in a while!"

However, others were left disappointed by the film. "I wasn't impressed much with #SweetGirl. Jason Momoa has presence and action star power to spare, but this is flat out derivative storytelling and execution. It's not exactly bad, but far from good," someone viewer harshly wrote.

Someone else criticised the film for another reason: "I'm watching Sweet Girl on Netflix and honestly it's a bit boring."
