This is already a brilliant script. It’s got fantastic actions, great goals, a superb protagonist, and some great twists and turns and is very nearly as good as it could be.

However, I would say that I didn’t fully follow all the twists and turns at the end, with the DEA, the military, and the government, and they somewhat felt that they were there just for the sake of it. Maybe bake them in earlier or slim them down a bit if possible.

The background for Alexa has been done before and your approach to it isn't really unique, at all. Additionally, there are too many characters at the beginning. There is a conversation between Alexa and Bishop hinting at tensions between Alexa and the rest of the team but nothing really goes further here with what happ...

I have to say, I'm pretty psyched. I mean, there was hardly a dull moment in the entire script, and that's a major accomplishment. The details, the breakneck pacing, the near-impossible stakes, the building of anticipation (for how difficult Alexa's mission will be, reminds me of a Mission Impossible briefing), everything was terrific.

Even the actions lines were the right length. Short and sweet, pack in the right details, keep the scene movi...
