Kinda took female empowerment a step too far with this one didn't you?
I do like the style. I do like the brooding, and the talks, and the scarred one, and at the initial shootout when the girl is pushed into the car it does feel pretty real - her expression's telling, but for the most part the gunners are just all over the place and nothing feels legit. A bit too flashy and a bit too close-up and a bit too psychotic.
The plot's a mess too, and it never gets anywhere. Feels like it was scripted by kids. Or they wanted something like both Memento and the Matrix and ended up mixing them carelessly. The balance is off.
It does have a few good names though, like Antonio Banderas, Jaime King and Catherine Davis.
And the filming's good. The gunfights do reel you in. Some bits are merciless. But some ends are just too loose, and the characters don't feel affectionate for five cents. Especially not the daughter.
rated 3.5/5: not bad at all
