Beautiful European Scenery with a cold blooded assassin, Janet Mcteer steels the show
28 August 2012 | by med77_99See all my reviews

I would agree with most on here that this movie is a flawed but entertaining R rated film.

its an action comedy movie that involves a female escort who witness a government cover up of a crime and is then hunted by the people trying to cover it up, aided by two unlikely private detectives to expose the crime and escape the ruthless assassins sent to eliminate her.

quite the simple plot yet filled with all sort of characters from funny and silly like Jullian played by Alphonso Mcauley to cold blooded killers like Helen played by Janet Mcteer who for me really stole the show with her brilliant performance as the British assassin, absolutely loved her ! the movie is a mixture of Action and Comedy which could work for and against the film, at times it felt like a Bond film, other times felt more like There is something about Marry !!

I mostly enjoyed the serious part of it, the mature violent kills and gory scenes, i also loved the setting of the film that took a wide tour through European countries capturing some beautiful scenery which added much to the movie.

Action scene were pulled off with perfection, gun fights and a final fist fight not to be missed.

In short, the movie was flawed in certain areas, but was actually pretty entertaining and worth a watch for sure, at least for Janet Mcteer's performance and some solid mature action. I say 7.5 out of 10
