TRAINED TO PROTECT. BORN TO SURVIVE.
Sam Carlson (Noomi Rapace) is hired as bodyguard to the young heiress (Sophie Nélisse) to a dead business tycoon… and they immediately find themselves in danger. We haven’t seen many movies about female bodyguards. We have definitely seen everything else here. There’s a terrific, explosive introduction of Rapace and her character’s capabilities in the first scene, and this action-thriller has a few solid moments. The story offers few surprises through and every character is a cliché, including the attempts to humanize the bodyguard.
