There are worse ways to spend 115 minutes
2 October 2003 | by (Premiere Video) – See all my reviews

As the movie begins, Eva Ramirez (former Miss Teen World Maria Conchita Alonso) is picked up by two federal agents who need her to appear in court to testify against her mob boss ex-husband. Unbeknown to the agents there's trouble afoot, and this conventionally routine task is made nearly impossible by a band of cumbersome misfits out to see that Miss Ramirez does not make her court date. They quickly finish off one of the agents, and spend the rest of the movie trying to get to Miss Ramirez. Much to their frustration, their plans are thwarted time and again by the second agent, the thrifty Lance Cooper (Matt McColm). This is an action film for action fans. This is the epitome of an action film, and doesn't pretend to be anything else. From credits to credits this is a bullet ballet (if I may borrow the catchy phrase from director Shinya Tsukamoto), almost relentlessly involving the protagonists in a chase, near death experience, or just an old-fashioned shootout. Matt McColm is great as a B-action star, and the comedy (attempted) of Miss Ramirez bounces of his stoic demeanor very effectively. It's not going to win an Oscar, but if you want to sit down to an action film, this would be a solid place to start. Rating: 28/40
