Goofs

Luc, a professional assassin, kills 3 men early in the film. Like all good killers she wore a pair of plastic surgical gloves for the occasion. The problem is after the shooting is over she proceeds to remove the gloves and leave them behind as she escapes via a nearby fire exit - leaving a perfectly good set of finger prints on the door knob.

Pausing dialog in a boring film
4 August 2002 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

What is the difference between good and bad filmmaking. I'm sure it is several things, but if there is anything I always notice in films clearly not made by our average professional is pausing between dialogs. The idea behind the film is not all that bad, and compared to what the actors had to work with they did OK. But the camera work or cutting is very bad indeed. There are so long pauses between the dialogs, that it seems that each actor said their sentence and then the other actor waited for a cue in order to say his part. The film is also full of strange statements about what the characters are about to do next. "I'm going to lie down now, as I am very tired" etc. Not to mention the big holes in the storytelling, with half of the story just not making any sense. Hardly worth watching, unless you like C-Movies, and not worth writing more about. 2/10
