Complaining about the lack of plot is missing the point, Cochise. In fact, I think the movie would have been improved with even less backstory. I'm on board with our protagonist simply because of the situation she finds herself in.

I say it is missing the point because Bullock's character is meant to be an avatar for us, the audience, as much as she can be. This film is about giving audiences an intense experience. By keeping the story as simple as possible -- just enough to get most everyone on board -- it allows audiences to stay focused on the experience of it all.
