The movie tries to have it both ways--being a thoughtful character drama and a stylish spy action thriller. Inevitably, there will have to be scenes where it fails--the action is often too cartoonish (particularly her first escape) to sustain believability. But the action is totally cool. Once I got into the mindset that this movie will occasionally flip a switch and turn instantly from 'character drama' to 'cool action flick' and back, I enjoyed the ride, as bumpy as it was.
