The picture in the newspaper at the bottom of the page in the airport (at 1:18:15) is not the "police sketch" we saw on TV news earlier in the film, but appears to be a photograph of Olga Kurylenko, complete with the bruise on her left jawline from the fight in the hotel room - perhaps a makeup test shot.

The action is really nice, even if it might start off on the wrong foot (or at least it feels like it does). There's conspiracy, there is fighting, there is shooting and there is chasing. What else would someone need? A more decent plot would be a helpful suggestion, but since there is none to be found here, let's roll with what we have and have a good time with it.
Olga is pretty fit (if you'll excuse the pun) and is able to pull off and make it look believable, what her character is going through in this movie. Sometimes it seems she is portrayed a bit weaker than she actually is, but that does not bother the flow of the movie too much. Light and fun entertainment, nothing more and nothing less
