This is yet another generic rip-off action movie that tries to act tougher than it actually is, though a sometimes-decent female lead helps somewhat. Unless I am missing something, the "Demolitionist" has guns that fire bullets, yet the blood effects (if that is what they are supposed to be) are completely unconvincing. This also is a movie that rams feminism down the viewers' collective throats with a ramrod. This heroine apparently is impervious to fire, 8,500 bullets and shotgun pellets, despite the fact she does not wear a full-head helmet and it seems that her suit can be penetrated by slugs fired at extremely close range. The gunfire effects are pathetic, in fact, outright disgraceful to a so-called action movie. Ridiculous and silly flick, only earning a three from me because of the motorcycle and Eggert's outfit.
