There are a lot of women in this movie, in strong female roles.

But they never manage to actual talk to each other, that I remember

James disagreed with the rating and said:
This movie VERY slightly passes when Alice is almost lured into a trap by Alexa (the assassin who was murdering everyone with ties to Fedorov's past). They also have a second confrontation at the end of the movie but it is completely non verbal. For the most part, for all the female spies we see in the movie, they don't talk to each other.

Interestingly at least for me, this movie covers a lot of the same ground in subject matter that The Equalizer and Taken did, but it feels far less pandering. It's just a good thriller.

I agree with the rating. I felt there was some unnecessarily gratuitous sexism in the movie. "Tits, you can leave".
