I was hooked from the moment the jazzy soundtrack kicked in. Gina Carano was a bit wooden, but what do you expect from a MMA fighter turned actress? Her fight scenes were some of the best. They were just so brutal, I felt like I could feel the impact of some of the blows.
Lots of stunning camera work, too. I especially liked the chase scene through the alleys of Barcelona.
If you're going to cast a kinda sleazy older gentleman, doesn't Michael Douglas need to be your first call?
