Great story, great actors
16 October 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I have been looking for this movie since I saw it round about 1995... I can't believe it I found it!!! :D

I can remember it so well, because I thought the story was really chilling, great fighting scenes and a very sexy love story (not corny at all) for the girls. *swoons* Russel Wong was amazing in this role, the story line was great... Alright when I saw it I was only 11 years old, so I might have higher expectations than I should have. It is unimaginable to me that I wouldn't like it. I fell in love with this movie when I first watched it, the music, the scenery and it's style. Not one boring minute.

Find it and buy it!!! NOW!
