18 July 2017 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Not your standard action movie. I liked the differences, as well as, the same threads that run through every action movie such as dead bodies and guns. I felt that with two female leads there would be more action for the mind and while there was it still had the physical action but it was done in a more straightforward manner.
