Critics reviews

As a captain in the military, [Osborne] thrives in masculine settings and situations and excels in putting her narrative puzzle pieces together, which is a trait required of every McTiernan protagonist. In the film, McTiernan’s most visually and narratively complex, Osborne’s role as guide to the audience is paramount.
