When will Gina Carano get the right staring vehicle? This is a woman who put female MMA on the map. She’s the original Rhonda Rousey, making the leap from celebrity athlete to leading lady. Carano’s worked with highfalutin auteur Steven Soderberg in the disappointing Haywire and has made appearances in the Fast & Furious franchise, but she’s never found the right role. Until now. Director Peter Howitt, a long way from his Sliding Doors days, reunites with that film’s star, John Hannah, in this predictable, but overall satisfying dystopian action thriller.
Director: Peter Howitt
Stars: Gina Carano, John Hannah, Ryan Robbins, Dean S. Jagger
