Blake Lively tries hard as a woman hellbent on vengeance, but grinding monotony is the real killer in this formulaic action thriller that leaps off the cliff of cliche into the valley of banality.

Lively's steely heroine and a propulsive plot ensure you're never bored, but this is a generic thriller from a simpler time, bulked up by a single strong performance.
