Did You Know?


The film was written as the entry point in a film franchise. See more »


In the hotel scene, when Alex holds the door to her room against one of the thugs ("Mr. Jefferson"), she reloads the very much empty pistol she's holding with a spare mag from the bag on the floor, then proceeds to shoot the thug in the foot. She never cycles the weapon - pulling the slide allows a round from the magazine to be loaded into empty firing chamber - therefore pulling the trigger would only result in yet another empty click from the gun.

a lot better than you think
29 October 2015 | by wycherleyp-960-470658See all my reviews

I am very surprised this film has some bad reviews as i really enjoyed this film, Yes its a old fashion cat and mouse chase type of film but its well done. Olga kurylenko plays the lead role and shows just how good she is, the ex hit-man (2007) and bond girl (quantum of solace) is a thief with a certain set of skills that will do whatever it takes to get the job done while james purefoy (a knights take) is the man sent to stop her. Plot is basic and easily followed but the action and constant clash between olga and james makes this film worth watching, with a small role in the film for morgan freeman "momentum" is one of the better small production films of 2015 and well worth a watch from the opening scene that looks like a bunch of power rangers on speed to the final 20 minutes of the film momentum delivers.
