Action, Style, Visual Pleasure,
This movie has received universally abysmal reviews, so I thought I might like it. I was right. This is really no more vapid than most action movies. I think there has been more than a little female bashing going on in these reviews. The public can't tolerate a physically strong female lead. I found this movie much more fun than watching Rambo fire a machine gun for ten minutes straight.
Although the script and plot were only somewhat better than Matrix (talk about abysmal), Milla Jovovitch, her personal trainer, and her costume designer really get an A+ for style and appeal. Don't go to this movie expecting a profound story or character development. Go for visual entertainment and fast paced action.
