Beautiful freelance covert operative Mallory Kane is hired out by her handler to various global entities to perform jobs which governments can't authorize and heads of state would rather not know about. After a mission to rescue a hostage in Barcelona, Mallory is quickly dispatched on another mission to Dublin. When the operation goes awry and Mallory finds she has been double crossed, she needs to use all of her skills, tricks and abilities to escape an international manhunt, make it back to the United States, protect her family, and exact revenge on those that have betrayed her.

I've never done a woman before.
You shouldn't think of her as being a woman. That would be a mistake.
I've literally just seen this and came out of the cinema thinking 'Was
that it?'. OK, the fight sequences were good, an easy rival for the
likes of Bourne, and the occasional one line comments did make me
chuckle but the acting, especially from the lead character, was pretty
poor. I even expected more from the likes of Douglas, McGregor and
The general plot was there and developed over what seemed like 3 hours,
however I felt the film was disjointed, predictable, and why she
insisted on befriending a random bloke and telling him her entire life
story after stealing his car is beyond me.
All in all I felt cheated, let down, and like I was watching a well
budgeted university film.
