Steven Soderburgh, 2011


I have to admit that I am not a fan of Soderburgh's films. I find them to be too clean, choppy, and they are absent of that grittiness that I look for. I didn't expect this to be any different, and it wasn't. I wanted to see this mainly for Gina Carano's performance. I found it disappointing. Her character seemed to lack the emotional depth that would make me get behind her. There were a couple of scenes that I really liked (the quick gun fight scene shot in black and white w/muffled sound, the car chase through the snowy woods), but overall the film just didn't do it for me.
