She doesn't look nearly as bad ass as a gun. It's like the Jem H'adar on DS9, looking sexy bad ass hasn't got anything to do with being bad, or even just being bad ass.

The movie would have been stronger if it had actually made any sense. Nonetheless, all the nonsense doesn't resolve a dramatic dilemma, it sets one up: What will JGL do about Bruce, when an alternate version of himself (the kid, that is,) with a chance at a morally better life at stake? The movie presumes that the audience will find killing for a living to be morally reprehensible and therefore find JGL's choice an acceptable resolution. If the actors made you care and believe in his choice, the movie is a success.
