    More brain splatter than I've seen before and an 80's soundtrack. Charlize gets nekked. Kewl action sequences. More lesbos than "Wonder Woman".

    I liked it.

    I thought it was OK. Good enough story, lots of *ahem* "action".

    I just thought they tried too hard to be something more than a popcorn flick, which probably isn't a goal that can be realized with this type of flick. Better editing, better cuts between scenes, a few other things, and this one would be high on my list of popcorn flicks.

    I have only seen the commericals on TV. Looked (in those) like it might have borrowed some stuff from 'Salt' (Salt (2010) - IMDb).
     
  6. Seriously, Charlize, choreographed fights, half naked nice looking women, what's not to like?
    OK, stupid script, but I'll still give it a shot, it's Charlize ;)

    Theron bought the rights to this "graphic novel" shortly after it was released. She is listed as a producer on the movie. The story deals with Russkies vs the west just before the Berlin Wall was torn down. Not brilliant but probably not stupid... in a relative sense.

    BTW, Charlize is about 42 and looks good to me. :D

    42 is jail bait for me:(

    I only mentioned the Yohn connection based on past reference to her sensuality.
    the movie is weak, very. Pop corn fluff...no more no less than what others have done or do

    Oh I wouldn't mind a look. But we are sick of comic book crap movies.

    It was okay. It's not anything we haven't seen already, but it's refreshing to see more mindless action movies starring female protagonists than male ones. Score was nice though

    I'll still probably check this out at home. Sometimes I just need to watch stuff blow up and people get punched.
