It's that action movie with Gina Carano in it!

She's a private agent that gets things done, and is basically set up to get burnt, and so we hit a revenge flick. And aside from the action sequences, there is absolutely no tension what so ever. Will she track down this person? Cut to her dealing with this person. Or rather, this man. Because she is pretty much the only woman in this movie, the rest are all guys.

And they are all amazingly casted guys. Michael Douglas, Antonio Banderas, Ewan McGregor, Bill Paxton, Michael Fassbender and Channing Tatum. And a bunch of other mooks that are wearing hoods of some kind so are interchangable. While there is a cast, there's one problem. Gina can kick ass, there no doubt about that, but the others are actors first, and so their fights need to be choreographed carefully to make it look impressive without actually endangering the chaps. (Gina can be endangered, because she can actually take it.)

And there's that one line where she's called Wonder Woman... although, of course, she never gets cast in that role! Irony!

As for her acting... well, she can do the physical stuff, but her dialogue was recorded over by someone else? Well, that shows no trust in her...
