Routine action film, but Tiana is a real babe
16 November 2007 | by See all my reviews

This is, on almost all accounts, a routine mid-to-low-budget 80's action film, mostly set in Argentina, with its weakest point probably being Rod Steiger's totally boring, sleepwalking villain. So let's talk about the female star, Tiana Alexandra:

  • She is VERY good-looking




  • She has a charming smile




  • She fills out a wet T-shirt and a tight sweater beautifully




  • She can act (going from a foul-mouthed, no-nonsense cop to her


undercover role as a naive young girl)

  • She can dance




  • She can fight (her ingenuity in dealing with the brick wall of a man


"Professor" Tanaka inside a small room is certainly memorable)

  • She can pose BEFORE the fight and take the mental advantage over her


opponent.

Basically, she's the only reason for someone to see this movie, and it's a shame she wasn't given a second break. If this one flopped, she should be the last person to blame. (**)
