amazing & incredibly tight fight scenes set this apart from most action movies, during all of her fights you get the sense that she's acutely aware of every inch of her body & always in total control.
midway through the movie there's a great fight scene, and where most movies would fall back on in your face music... you get nothing but combat sounds during a life and death struggle.
her acting is great, especially for someone who's so junior... she doesn't mumble or stammer through her lines... her self-confidence really shines through.
my only complaint? WHY IS THIS MOVIE SO CHEAP?! it's insulting to the production, but awesome since you don't really have to think twice about owning this great action flick.
That being said, I enjoyed the visual texture of the film, the tight storyline (little to no fluff; just progression of the main story), and, most of all, Gina Carano. On the one hand, they obviously dubbed her voice. Those of us who remember her from her MMA days will notice that more or less right away. It's an odd choice partly because the voice-over actress has a very stern and unpleasant voice that doesn't fit Gina at all, and partly because if you take a big chance by casting an unknown non-actor in a film like this, it seems a bit unsteady and weak to cancel out part of that bravery by dubbing the woman's voice. Neverminding that, the fight scenes are outstanding; most especially the fight in the hotel, which I would rank as one of the better exchanges of its kind captured on film.
All that being said, just remember: it's a genre film. It won't change your mind about the genre or appeal to people who ordinarily hate spy thrillers. But if you are at least somewhat intrigued by that menu option, I'd recommend this film to you.
it seems like the women is meeting an old friend from a past government job,
the movie jumps around so much, from past jobs to whats going at the time and
then, it looks like a future job!
