Director: Joe Wright. Cast: Saoirse Ronan, Cate Blanchett, Eric Bana. 111 min. Rated PG-13. Action/Thriller.
A rogue CIA agent trains her 10-year-old daughter to become ... a rogue CIA agent. Enchanting action sequences with exhilarating background music, as director Joe Wright continues his Atonement tradition of garnishing a disappointing story with highly-stylized cinematography. The lack of substance here makes you scratch your head at times (really, why did the father come out of hiding?), and the supposed twist at the end is more of a story gimmick than a twist (abnormal DNA, whoopee). By the way, this movie contains a significant amount of running.
