Academy Award winning actress Halle Berry is back in a big way with Bruised, and people everywhere are fawning over her performance.

The movie also marks Berry’s directorial debut.

Bruised tells the story of Berry as washed up UFC fighter Jackie Justice who is forced to get her life back together discovering her estranged underage son has lost his father.

The “big fight” movie, where an athlete has to redeem themselves and get back into fighting shape, is a fairly tired Hollywood trope, but Berry manages to shock some life into the genre.

“Her direction is gritty and assured, and her leading performance hasn’t lost an ounce of that star quality — to simultaneously be so weak and so strong — that won her an Oscar for “Monster’s Ball.” The only reason you like this hot mess of a person is that it’s Berry who plays her,” wrote NY Post critic Johnny Oleksinski.

Take a look at the trailer below.

Understandably, people are here for it.

7 minutes into Bruised and Halle Berry beat up a kid, described it as “super necessary” and then she had sex, incredible movie.

Berry has been tweeting about the movie and encouraging women to not give in to societal norms, writing “Who says you can’t kick ass at 55?”

One viewer called it Berry’s best work, which is saying something considering she took home the Best Actress Oscar for Monster’s Ball.

Somewhere between Million Dollar Baby and Southpaw, #Bruised elevates the classic playbook of the sports drama genre with the fresh POV of a queer single mother of color.

A lot of heart, a lot of swagger, a killer soundtrack and a career-best star turn from Halle Berry. pic.twitter.com/0Fk1atQTbH
