A black ops super soldier seeks payback after she is betrayed and set up during a mission.
Gina Carano underwent a six-week intensive tactical training course with Aaron Cohen, an ex-Israeli special ops fighter. She spent three hours a day in stunts and three hours a day with Cohen. During a particularly harrowing two-week period when Cohen was teaching Carano the art of surveillance and countersurveillance, he and his team tracked her via a GPS system installed in her car. He gave her a prop blue pistol to use as defense and intercepted her as she was coming out of a hair salon. "I just got extensions and was feeling so pretty and there he was," recalls Carano, laughing. "He taught me entry and exiting a building, clearing a room, he put a GPS on my car, he like, followed me around. He had me stalking people, he had people stalking me. They just put me with a soldier who had never done a film before either. We were just soldier and a fighter thrown together in these unique circumstances and got to know each other's backgrounds. I think that was the biggest part of my preparation."
Aaron: What the hell are you doing out here? I had to drive all night. I'm hungover as shit. And you're really starting to cut into my vacation time, so can we go please?
The fight on the beach, presumably near Veracruz, takes place at sundown. But Veracruz is on the east coast, and the sun rises from the sea on the east coast of Mexico.
