Evelyn and Bree never have a conversation.

There is one scene that may be a very dubious pass of tests 2 and/or three where Evelyn is brought before Bree and a rag tag group of male soldiers,spies and scientists and they discuss how they are going to stop Will Caster.

There is absolutely nothing positive or feminist you could say about Evelyn's characterization. She's terrible.

Bree is bland. But she doesn't fall into any hysteric tropes, and the movie doesn't depict her as being any less competent than her many male counterparts

Jennifer Weston disagreed with the rating and said:
The two prominent female characters- Evelyn Caster and Bree- *do* have an exchange of words.
It is about a man (Will Caster), though not the usual sort of discussion; one woman conspired to murder him, the other attempted to resurrect him, and they have to decide how to deal with the unexpected results.
