Mother Jennifer Lopez! Netflix's "The Mother" Trailer Shows Her Return to Action ..

"The only thing that surprised me was that Jennifer hadn't been an action movie hero her entire career," she says of Lopez, whose last action film was 2002's Enough.

Jennifer brings her legendary skill and precision to the action elements, but also her strength as a dramatic actor and her experience as a mother right to the heart of the movie," says Caro, 56. "Jennifer was the only actress."

The film stars Joseph Fiennes, Lucy Paez, Omari Hardwick, Paul Raci, and Gael Garcia Bernal.

The director wanted to make the new film because it stars a mom in a global action adventure. "Hard-wired to protect her child," specifically.

"Movie mothers are often secondary characters. The mother is badass this time, "Caro says. "Jennifer Lopez at her best is a gift to mothers and audiences everywhere."

Lopez plays a mother who will do anything to keep her daughter safe  Unfortunately, she has to give up her new role as a mother soon after giving birth.

She does what she's told, but she also keeps an eye on her kid. And then, years later, she has no choice but to intervene when her daughter is kidnapped.
