The action in this revenge thriller is perfectly fine, but there's no innovation or surprises. The violence, gory kills, fight scenes, set pieces, and chase scenes are all cool enough in Sentinelle, but they lack a certain... punch. It often feels like the action is merely going through the motions: here's the chase scene, here's the bathroom fight scene with the urinal head smash, here's the woman vs. woman one-on-one, here are the knife up through the chin and neck kills, and so on.

The plot is the same, nothing surprising: here's the damaged but not perfect heroine, here's the evil rapist who enjoys beating women who must pay and suffer, here are the momentary setbacks, here's the final challenge. Klara goes about her vengeance wearing a constant scowl. Kurylenko does a decent enough job as Klara too, convincing in her determination and fury. The only problem is the bare structure of the plot and the very bare script don't allow Kurylenko to flex any broader acting muscles, which is a shame, as she proves here she could probably handle it.
