In this well-made yet repellent action film, Saoirse Ronan plays the role of the teenage daughter of a trained CIA assassin (Eric Bana). In snowy Finland, dad schools his little girl in all manner of combat and survival tactics. Dad’s old boss (Cate Blanchett) wants her rogue agent brought in from the cold. She also has plans for the girl, who has been genetically engineered to follow a bloody path indeed. Ronan holds the screen. But for all its globe-trotting, the movie never goes anywhere.
