Goofs

Amanda has a picture of her father in USAF pilot gear alongside post 1991 master sergeant stripes with a first sergeant diamond. She tells a story that he was a pilot. The USAF has not had enlisted pilots since WW2 and the last of those retired in the 50's. Her father couldn't have been a master sergeant and be a military aircraft pilot. See more »

Good concept but too many character inconsistencies
26 August 2012 | by mattfitzpatrickSee all my reviews

It's an interesting concept in breaking the engineering sexism that only men can design great projects, but as brilliant as the protagonist is, you never see her doing any work other than being a busy body. For a woman who is supposed to be a brilliant engineer, she is a complete fool in dealing with the police, the engineer who stole her design, and her colleagues who could prove her innocent. Each time she does something to try and save herself, the viewer is left asking, "how can someone who is so smart, so foolish." It is her own stupidity that keeps the plot going, which is totally contrary to her character of a brilliant engineer. The movie has good suspense and action, as long as you don't care about the inconsistencies of the character.
