It's one of the few genuinely cinematic action films in recent years, Soderbergh actually allows his characters actions to control the narrative. Mallory represents a breakdown in an otherwise effective if corrupt system resulting in a fractured narrative becoming essentially a series of vignettes about Mallory in relation to cinematic spaces. Take notes Christopher Nolan. Must see.
I appreciate seeing a woman who kicks ass and looks convincing doing it, and I'll take that any time over another Kate Beckinsale or Milla Jovovich, but even with an all-star cast and a stylish look/score everything about this film feels like a phoned-in genre exercise. The tone is completely detached; a whole lot of nothing hinging on a series of fight setpieces and awkwardly delivered lines.
