A dud mostly, but it has its redeeming qualities
6 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

"Model By Day" is not a very good movie: it's clumsily directed, poorly scripted (who could the "mystery opponent" be? Hmmm, look at the cast), the editing is a disaster, roughly 70% of the action appears to have been performed by stunt doubles, and the cinematography is annoyingly soft-focus. What it does offer, however, is Famke Janssen, one of the sexiest actresses alive in my opinion, in a leather outfit and butt-kicking mode. This movie was made one year before "Goldeneye", and I wouldn't be surprised to learn that the people who picked her for the role of Xenia Onatopp had seen her here first: those eyes...those legs...that attitude...and ESPECIALLY that biting of her lower lip that she does so often...watch this movie if only to see her. It also probably served as an inspiration for "Black Scorpion" from 1995 and the subsequent TV series of the same name. (**)
