Probably the worst movie I have seen in over a decade. Truly an embarrassment of a B movie to all involved. Don't believe the positive reviews here; they HAVE to be plants. 10 stars? Jason Bourne like? What? Who ARE these reviewers?
The script is flawed and lame. The acting by everyone is really, really bad; ...and I had high hopes as I like many of the actors in this and I enjoy these types of movies. The editing is poor; lots of unnecessarily long scenes and then rushed others. The story line is slow and very predictable. You will figure it all out immediately if you have a brain.
But the absolute worst is the pure silliness of it. A slender little ballerina destroys multiple Russian hit-men because she stretched while in prison? Seriously? She spins and spins while elbowing a petite older woman who manages to survive those multiple elbows to face along with a half dozen kicks. However later one kick to an 6'+ 250 lb Russian mobster and he is out. Okaaay.
It was like watching a train-wreck. I couldn't believe it could be so corny and had to watch to the end. It didn't disappoint. For example, she takes out the last two by doing a typical ballerina split jump. Really? A couple of toes to the face is all it takes? Then these two big murdering Russian bruts look at her and run away leaving $500M? Hahaha! Riiiight. She leaves a pile of dead bodies of good decent people around her that helped her and, eh, who cares; she always walks over them without checking if they are alive. Just smile and walk away. Great role model for her kid.
And no, none of these are spoilers. Also, if you can't figure this embarrassment of a movie out in advance, I pity your offspring. Watch Atomic Blonde, Red Sparrow, or Anna instead of this poor B movie. All have better acting, plot, twists, realistic fights, editing, and not so predictable.
