Action Drama Thriller - This brutal and violent film marks star
Jennifer Garner's return to action projects,
so fans of her earlier genre work such as
Alias, Daredevil, and Elektra should especially
Bloody violence and constant language make the
film not for kids.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Average The dumb screenplay doesn't give the actors much to do. Garner's physicality is showcased but not her acting ability. She's forced into a one-act mold and, while it allows her to escape the stereotype she has recently been forced into, it's not a worthy role for someone of her talent and charisma.
Slant MagazineFull Review Poor Morel directs the scenes of action mayhem with aplomb, but he also glamorizes them, such as with slow-motion sequences that allow us to better appreciate the righteous, precision-targeted violence that Riley unleashes on Garcia's gang, one man at a time.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 84 moviegoers:
WOW! GREAT REVIEWS! Professional movie critics didn't like this movie much, but moviegoers certainly did! A very high percentage loved it with most of the rest, indicating that they enjoyed it very much. Only a tiny percentage of adult males and females rated it as low as "good/average" (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).
