Satisfying action
13 July 2005 | by (Mansfield, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Dolph is an assassin who takes on his last assignment. He's experienced, mature, and filled with common sense - trying to teach the naive and deadly wannabe, Gina, to be discriminative and aware. This takes place in a metropolitan building,(not yet finished), overlooking the bridge leading from the US into Canada. It's also where Dolph and Gina go through a period of adjusting from their previous troubled time together. There were some flashbacks, which I liked; they fit in well at showing their past job together, and the reason for their problematic rejoining. But during that time is when a minor flaw occurs (concerning authenticity); it's about a security guard snorting cocaine

  • (his job must pay awful well) - and he snorts it several times during


the night. But what the hell, it helps him become more of a sex-craved maniac looking to fill-in a boring night: a romp through the penthouse with the sexy Gina as the participant. He does a great job as a weirdo guard, and is an excellent filler for action during the assassins set up. But . . . Then after Gina fights off a sexual attack with the guard, she then gets a sexual feeling for Dolph, of course. This happens near the window that's been cutout in a circled manner for the upcoming assassination attempt - you'll see her fine shapely hips while laying on the floor. Although Gina doesn't have an ounce of toughness to her, she still does all right as the female assassin. The action scenes were good; some extreme, but not too outrageous like a lot of other flicks. And maybe I could include that the Canadians seem to have a higher percentage of good action movies than Hollywood.
