Steven Soderbergh’s latest attempt to subvert popular genre expectations results in an adequate 007 action/adventure picture. Mixed martial arts champion Gina Carano has the tough, tight look and smoldering dispassion the genre demands, but not even Meryl Streep could add depth to this. It’s easier to swallow than the average Angelina Jolie “female empowerment” outing, due to the expertly staged fight sequences and a brisk running time. With Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender, Antonio Banderas, Michael Angarano. 2012.
