Jessica Alba Faces Viewer Backlash as “Trigger Warning” Film Receives Criticism for Predictable Plot and Weak Execution in Latest Netflix Release

Jessica Alba, known for her roles in various action thrillers, has taken on a new challenge with “Trigger Warning,” where she not only stars but also serves as an executive producer.

Released on June 21, the film follows her character, an active-duty Special Forces officer who inherits her father’s bar only to discover a local gang’s reign of terror upon returning to her hometown.

Despite Alba’s efforts, “Trigger Warning” has received a lukewarm response, garnering a dismal 15 per cent rating from audiences on Rotten Tomatoes.

Critics on social media platforms like X, formerly known as Twitter, have not held back their disappointment, labeling the film as ‘predictable garbage’ and ‘one of the worst ever.’

One commenter lamented, “Jessica Alba, I love you, but that Trigger Warning movie was horrible.

Horrible movie.

Waste of one hour plus.”

Another added, “I actually like Jessica Alba, but Trigger Warning is just a waste of time.”

Alba’s Perspective and Feminist Approach

Despite the criticism, Jessica Alba remains passionate about the project, highlighting its female-led production team on a recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

She emphasized her desire for a grounded, female-driven action film, celebrating the involvement of women in key roles behind the scenes.


While “Trigger Warning” may not have hit the mark with all viewers, Jessica Alba’s commitment to pushing boundaries in the action genre is evident.
