Olga Kurylenko... mesmerizing... but , for some crazy reason she and a few other petite beautiful women have found vehicles such as this; bank robbers, "elite trained" ex-military killing machines... wow... It just doesn't compute, for me. For movies such as this, please somebody showcase the incredible stunt women/men who do the actual work. Olga is incredibly mesmerizing and beautiful to watch on screen IN MEANINGFUL ROLES, but this is a pure joke. Spoiler alter; Her character, in this one after a few silly "mistakes" , mades early in the film, she suddenly performs borderline miracle magic martial arts and incredible accurate pistol shooting... wow... yet faced with multi-targets earlier in this movie, her character misses them all, at less than 5 feet away! Wow... It gets really weird when she appears out of nowhere like the lone ranger, on cue to save her nephew and sister, but somehow missed all those other easy targets earlier, and did all those other stupid things! ... and of course, the one REALLY "bad guy" she can't seem to kill , survives, even more fantastically; gets saved for the final scenes... this is a jokey goofy movie, so preposterous I couldn't complete it.. My question is why great actresses such as Scarlet Johanson and Olga and a few others, all feel it is so "freeing" and assertive to play these roles... preposterous roles showcasing skills none of them have in real life... sweet females who have presence, DEPTH, a wide range and depth , INCREDIBLE acting skills never used in a movie such as this...their talent wasted... YET, for the easy$ they rush to sign on to these projects where they can make huge money, really HUGE MONEY doing NOTHING! and actually none of that real martial art skill is anywhere in their true ability EVER going to be in sight for them, it's all stunt people, so... to play these roles, it's all fake, never a deep scene of emotion, just flashy posturing, then replaced with stunt doubles and they collect their checks!????? Is any of this acting...is this actually a "movie"? I truly wonder... meanwhile in real life there are so few humans who can do any of this kind of "magic fantasy martial art"... just sayin', even the best can't do these kinds of fantastic moves... neither do you need to be able to, in order to defeat a foe far easier moves requiring LESS skill work efficiently, and never taking so much time. It is estimated that an actual street fight takes less than 8 seconds time, IN other words, if you have the skills you live or die in less than 10 seconds, it's all reaction and efficiency.... this MOVIE is comic book land... there are just too many films like this... nothing real here... pure fantasy... and for me an insult to my sensibility. I actually care about Olga the person...and I wonder, why does she stoop so low for this kind of silliness????
I can see that Olga can "act"... I wish a true movie with a real plot would AGAIN be offered for her, or perhaps that she "wakes up" at least once in awhile plays the role of a real person again ... something that never requires these fake realities to float.
