She is supposed to use her years of military training and competency to fight the enemy and stop them. Fans are reviewing the movie. Let us look at them.
Interceptor reviews from fans
Director Sam Hargrave has won over many hearts with his skillful directions. This movie is no exception. Die-hard fans of Sam loved the movie so much that one of them twitted this.
#Interceptor on #Netflix is a freaking badass action movie. It has a tough as nails female lead holding off a swathe of US terrorists from taking down the final interceptor base to allow nuclear strikes on US soil. The usual sorts are giving this movie shit. Don't listen to them.

While some viewers are in love with the lead, some criticized the plot and dialogues of the movie. They called it the watchable from the list of bad streaming movies.
#Interceptor has the facade of a serious action thriller, but really is a silly movie. Cheesy dialogue, cliched characters, and overly dramatic action scenes make for a "so bad it's good" 90-minute Netflix film. Of all the bad streaming movies, this is the most watchable. 4.5/10 pic.twitter.com/EPsFU7uJ1C

One of them advised watching the movie after getting drunk.
#Interceptor was supposed to be a comedy. I believe this because the alternative is sad.
Omg it’s gotten worse since writing this tweet. Watch drunk.

However, The Guardian considered the movie to be absurd but entertaining. It says, “A frantic real-time piece of pulp about one woman trying to avert nuclear missiles hitting the US is clunky yet committed.” It also says that the film’s contagious enthusiasm and commendable energy covered the ordinary performances and inelegant dialogues.
In another detailed review, the reviewer has praised the setup of the movie, especially the 2 ticking clocks. They say that it increases the intensity of the scene and creates tension in the viewers’ minds. “The nuclear apocalypse threat is also a good motivator for everyone not giving a single inch. Adding to this, containing most of the action into one set amplifies the tension.” said the reviewer.

Last but not the least, Netflix’s tweeter post would make it clear why the audience liked Elsa Pataky’s performance.
Extraction director Sam Hargrave served as the action consultant on Elsa Pataky's new movie Interceptor — which will make sense when you see the insane way this fight scene ends.
