sucks
2 November 2003 | by (maryland) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie a long time ago, but I remember that this movie was kind of stupid. What really turned me off about it, was that the lead actress was not Korean, nor resembled any Asian race. I think in the movie, she had a Russian mother/father (I don't quite remember)and I think the producers thought that she could pass off as a Euroasian woman.

As an Asian, myself, I don't think it would be really hard to find an Asian actress of the same caliber of March (which is not quite high). She looked plain white next to the other Asian actors.
