A pleasant surprise...
24 September 1999 | by (Bonn, Germany) – See all my reviews

I watched this film only by accident, but it was a pleasant surprise...

The acting is quite good. Sandra Speichert is the perfect choice for the title role, Kier and Mendl are convincing as villains and Kretschmann as Tim is okay.

From the technical side this film was really surprising. Unconventional editing, good stunts and some professional computer animation. This good mix is unfortunately quite seldom in a german production... On the contra side it was sometimes quite obvious when a green screen element and a normal sequence were composed.

The script... Well, take elements from Total Recall, Mission: Impossible, The Real McCoy, GoldenEye and some other Bond movies, then you have the script for this film. But I think it is a good script because its good fun and thats the entire purpose of it. Though, this script has some BIG plot holes. For a example the wounded Tim. He is shot in the stomach but three scenes later he's jumping around as if he is Superman himself.

But forget that... its just entertainment. If you like a good action/comedy mix, try this. You will not be disappointed.

My vote: 7/10
