Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Drama Mystery - This gritty action thriller is a change of pace for lead Blake Lively, whose fans will enjoy seeing her in a different type of role. The other recognizable faces in the cast, Jude Law and Sterling K. Brown, have much smaller supporting roles. Constant language, violence, and some drug and sexual content make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average Unevenly paced and with a miscast lead, the movie fails to get us to care about its automaton main character as she goes through the motions in a generic spy thriller. Spy action-thrillers are supposed to be fun on some level. This one is too much of a chore to properly entertain.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average ...despite some impressively inventive camerawork...and a couple of intense action sequences, the film as a whole feels rushed and frustratingly empty. ...the story seems truncated; it's as if he understandably wanted to include as much as possible from his source material, yet still had to work within the constraints of a reasonable running time.

USA Today Full Review
Average Lively pulls off one of her best movie roles so far - ranking up there with her surprisingly delicious shark flick "The Shallows" - and is surrounded by plenty of visual spectacle, yet is waylaid by a narrative that lacks excitement. Even the twists seem painfully ordinary.

NY Post Full Review
Below Average The script (by Mark Burnell based on his novel) never really coheres, and whatever momentum the action scenes build is quickly undercut by the endless, gauzy flashbacks of Patrick remembering happier times with her family.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Below Average Blake Lively does her best as a woman hellbent on avenging her parents' death, but clichés are the real killer in this formulaic action movie. The problem is the script, written by author Burnell (he has four Stephanie Patrick novels in print to date), whose twists feel generic and narratively lazy.
