Nice low budget action flick
5 November 2015 | by jackmeatSee all my reviews

SPOILER: My quick rating 5,3/10. A pretty straight forward action movie with a really kewl looking robbery to start off with. When the main character (Olga Kurylenko) is accidentally seen on a supposed diamond heist, she must run from those that hired them to steal the diamonds, or was it for the diamonds at all? This leads to a cat and mouse game between them and does involve some interesting action sequences along with a solid female lead to be reckoned with. Not really anything new but enough flare to hold your attention, especially for a limited budget flick. I wouldn't mind seeing a sequel to this (the ending sorta leaves the door open) since this movie did well with what it had to work with.
