Elevator Pitch A woman carrying a bag of car parts through an airport becomes involved with a man who appears to be on the run from the CIA, and soon finds that her survival depends on her going on the run with him, as they are chased by men in cars in aircraft and by drones, across America and Europe.
Content A number of set pieces usually involving martial arts, hand guns and machine guns with the occasional explosion. Some of them involving car chases, maybe the most ingenious also involving bulls, Smart cars and trams in Seville. A bit of snogging and as seen in the trailer, CD in a bikini once.
A View It was rumoured to be a collection of set pieces with the script added later, but this was actually a fiction developed by the critic of Time Out. In fact it had been under development for years with many stars associated with it before the final casting. I thought it was fun, and a watch for nothing if you like action movies.
