It’s good up until the confrontation with Kenneth at Mallory’s father’s house. Then it drags. And drags. It could of ended at any point from there on out but Soderbergh decided to draw it out. I loved everything before that though. The hostage rescue scene was immaculately shot and edited. The fight scenes (except for the beach one) were refreshingly less edited and slower paced. While the film has a standard action plot, it strays away from reveling too much in action film tropes. There aren’t many one liners. There isn’t some thumping music playing in the background of the fight scenes. It has a very back to basic feel to it. Gina Carano delivers a fine performance because that is what is demanded from her – a performance. Her acting is invisible because she isn’t acting. Soderbergh is subverting our expectations by giving us a non-romanticized version of an action film protagonist. The rest of the cast is fine. I loved the book end dialog. The very first thing Mallory says is shit, the last line in the film is also shit. Overall a fine piece of work that just could of been a tiny bit better if the script was strong until the end.
