Let's be clear about this from the get go. This is anything like a normal thriller/action film. Some of the sequences might give you a headache or will make you shake your head in disbelief. Still if you can get over that (clearly at least one other reviewer here was compelled to write this is the worst movie he saw), then you will enjoy a movie that is very different.
It's Soderbergh so we should know that sometimes he goes strange places. Casting a non-actress (but "combat" expert) was a wise move. I haven't watched the Girlfriend Experience where he cast an Ex Adult star to play the main role, but in this case it worked out. Of course the fact that she is accompanied by quite an exquisite male cast does help a lot. The feeling that this might be older than it actually is, was intentioned of course.
