The first (and for some of us, the best) amnesiac-CIA-assassin thriller makes you giddily nostalgic for the ’90s, when heroes were buddied-up wisecrackers who outran giant explosions.
Renny Harlin’s finest two hours has a sinewy Geena Davis spitting insults from Shane Black’s tungsten-tough script.
Samuel L Jackson wields the best lines (“I never did one right thing in my life. That takes skill”), while Davis’ machine-gunning mom takes care of business.
Not the best transfer, and few extras, but vital if you need reminding why Samantha Caine could take Evelyn Salt easily. Blindfolded, probably.
