Review: A lot of wasted space doesn’t draw one’s attention to the central image as well as some think. It makes the film look like it doesn’t quite have enough to fill an entire design. Otherwise, the image will appeal slightly to Charlize Theron action fans.

Trailer Rating: C+ / C

Review: (#1) Some elements of the film look enticing. The rest look fairly standard issue in the action thriller subgenre. The lack of narrative focus doesn’t help the audience form a mental or emotional bond with the audience.

(#2) The first trailer felt more alive, this one seems to drag itself along like it’s a burden on the stars and the studio. It might give a bit more background on the premise behind the film, but it doesn’t do the film’s chances any favors.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
