The character is based on a real person Jacquie Davis, the most skillful female bodyguard who has actually saved children, has been shot, stabbed and more (look her up). Finally a good action movie, with no stupid unrealistic car chasing's and unrelatable cold and empty heroes. Noomi Rapace gave an outstanding performance (as always) that definitely lifts the movie a lot. We have seen this type of story before (young rich girl being rescued from kidnappers by her bodyguard etc) but that wasn't a problem for me. I liked the fact that the protagonist isn't the stereotypical hollywood bad-ass woman with no feelings and the strength of a gorilla, she is not necessary stronger than the bad guys, but quicker, more skillful and smarter. Easy watching film, that has smart action that doesn't let you get bored, but not too much action to get tired of it.

Based on a real person, Jacquie Davis. Does NOT deserve 5.5 for sure.Reviewed byanastasiaozgVote: 8/10
This a b-grade action flick ticks some boxes, but left to much on the table.
The main character Sam (Noomi Repace) is based on real-life female bodyguard Jacquie Davis, and is a good premise for a movie, but they failed to capitalize on what could have been a grittier, edgier story, using far to many cliche's and thread-bear plots lines.
This is most definitely Jewson's baby, whom writes, directs and produces this 'action thriller'.
Rapace acts well, as she mostly does in her films, which carries a lot for the film, boosted by fair performances of both Nelise and Varma. But no matter how good their performances the characters ultimately fail in been properly developed and the audience never really gets to connect to anyone in-particular.
The action is good and clean, with realistic 'close' quarter fight scenes, that would do justice to any action flick, however, the thriller part remained elusive. Although action was well filmed, with clear cinematography, Jewson didn't really make enough use of films location to add to the story.
A fair watch for a lazy Sunday afternoon, for a film that ultimately shoots straight down the middle.
Well, maybe the innovative way of strangling a dude by pulling on his legs while the other chick holds his arms deserves some praise. But then we'd have to get into this whole discussion about body weight and muscle mass of women v. men and get all boring.The only question left after wasting two hours on this unpolished turd is who the hell ordered the kidnapping in the first place? And why? Most importantly, why make movie about it?
