Just another action movie, with the usual tenuous-at-best grip on reality.

[Besson] seems to like playing off the generic, though he probably thinks of it as working with the mythic, the classic.

Excessively violent, empty-headed, contrived and full of gaping plot holes.

Begins with the materials of a violent thriller but transcends them with the story of the heroine's transformation.

[VIDEO] Before it spawned a cornucopia of television series knock-offs, writer/director Luc Besson's stylized 1990 French crime thriller set a new standard for the girl-with-a-gun movie trope.

This Besson thriller sparked many a wannabes, but it's clear this film stands on its own two feet, and kicks you in the head.

An exciting and entertaining actioner that tests the plausibility of its story with an unreality check.

If Luc Besson's latest goes into absurd overdrive, it does so with entertaining finesse.
