Carano is great in the lead (the camera loves her), but there's nothing to support her. She's lost in this system of deconstructed conventions and action movie clichés. I guess the film is ultimately too conventional to be exciting, but too different to be conventional. It doesn't play by the rules, like Out of Sight or Traffic, but neither does it thrown them out of the window, like The Informant! or Ocean's Twelve.
