What It Really Is: Director Steven Soderbergh makes a stylish espionage thriller with an MMA twist. Carano is a natural when it comes to kicking ass, but she’s also so pretty we want her to be our girlfriend. (Call us!) Soderbergh does his usual storytelling methods like he did in Out of Sight and The Limey, where it’s always skipping around to make it more interesting and mysterious. The cast of well known actors, including Michael Douglas, turn this from a straight-to-cable action flick to something much classier with the right amout of bone crunching.
