Because they decided to make the female character more believable it also led to the problem of yelling at the TV because I was so mad at her for not acting more "brave" or doing things that I was supposing were downright obvious to do, but I could easily see how you might chicken out in real life.

Years later, when he reluctantly accepts a coaching job at his alma mater, he may get one last shot at redemption. And the camera seldom strays more than 2 feet from the actor - so despite being shot in Scotland, London, New York, Madrid and elsewhere, what the movie mostly offers is a parade of faces. It's not her fault. Kyle and Swin live by the orders of an Arkansas-based drug kingpin named Frog, whom they've never met. She messed up pretty much every task she had.
