Hands down, my favorite movie of 2011 so far. Of course, it’s only April, and I am, admittedly, a sucker for well-made action movies with female leads.
The movie is gripping, suspenseful, and I must commend The Chemical Brothers for sound mixing in this film (the latest in the trend of successful artists creating film scores–see Daft Punk, Trent Reznor, et. al).The pulsing, driving techno beats make the action sequences–especially the escape from a government facility–heart-thumpingly intense.
The entire segment conducted in the government facility is one of my favorite parts of the film, and not only for the music.
