In this globe-trotting revenge thriller, mixed martial arts star and Las Vegan Gina Carano delivers some serious beatdowns. Special operative Mallory (Carano) is being set up for a double cross and suspects as much. After whomping her partner (Channing Tatum), she takes a hostage (Michael Angarano) and drives. Along the way, she beats up her ex/overseer (Ewan McGregor) and another operative (Michael Fassbender), all the while defying untrustworthy authority figures (Michael Douglas and Antonio Banderas).

Mark Wahlberg plays Chris Farraday, an ex-smuggler who gets sucked back into the game in this fairly entertaining remake of an Icelandic thriller. A nasty drug lord (Giovanni Ribisi) is owed money by Farraday’s brother-in-law, and Farraday’s wife (Kate Beckinsale) gets roughed up pretty badly. Now Farraday has to get beaucoup counterfeit bills from Panama to New Orleans in a jiffy. The camerawork is way too jittery, but with reliable Wahlberg alongside Ribisi and the equally weaselly Ben Foster, the film holds its own weight.
