Trivia

According to Charlize Theron and KiKi Layne, most of the stunts were performed by the actors, not stunt-doubles. See more »

Goofs

When Booker hands Andy the unloaded HK USP, she should have noticed. Anyone as familiar with weapons as she is would notice the weight difference between an unloaded gun and a loaded one. The balance of the gun without bullets in a polymer handle would also be very noticeable. Nile, as a marine, also would have noticed when Andy gave it to her. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Andy: [narrating] I've been here before. Over and over again. And each time the same question. Is this it? Will this time be the one? And each time the same answer. And I'm just so tired of it.

User Reviews

 
Great potential. Ultimately mediocre
10 July 2020 | by srdikanoSee all my reviews

I really wanted to like this film. It's got a simple but fun premise and it's got Charlize Theron, who's a fantastic actress. But the film is just marred by plot holes, cliched characters, tacky dialogues and hands down the most inadequate music possible for this film.

It's still a passable action film if you have absolutely nothing else to watch.
