This is pretty much a does-what-it-says-on-the-tin movie, maybe a little surprising stylistically, which is great, but not in terms of story, which was fairly generic. Well, very generic. It's cool to see Gina Carano do her thing however, and Soderbergh straddles the line between glamorized violence and gritty realism, resulting in a pretty cool film indeed. I expect it to grow on me if and when I rewatch it, although I felt it never really built tension like it could have.
- Gina Carano's performance isn't as bad as people would have you believe, nor did it require much.
- The score was COOL. Like, Ennio Morricone meets Lalo Schifrin cool.
- The intertitle typography was also cool.
