Not too bad at all...
7 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

From every review I've read, I thought this would be a soft-core porn clinker, but with the exception of one topless scene and a fairly tame love-making scene featuring the ultra-gorgeous Irene Wan, I'd say it was PG-13/borderline R-rated by US standards. A bit of violence, but nothing ultra violent, either. The film was interesting, but the subtitles were difficult to follow because there were two--Mandarin on top and English on the bottom--and they were often white on a very light background, but if you pay attention you can follow with no problems. Especially interesting were the couple of plot twists and the bit of a surprise ending in the film. Although it's a bit hokey, all-in-all the film was interesting and enjoyable and a good film for a novice Asian film fan to check out before proceeding to the more graphic ones.
