Some stylish action with typical Corman camp
2 April 2002 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

It is important to note that this is a very unusual film. Usually Corman films have action sequences that are a bit campy. Hard as nails plays the fight scenes serious. Actress/Stunt artist Chona Jason is a wicked bad girl not to be messed with, and excellent with a sword. The movie has some parts which are way too campy and silly not keeping with the fighting. This detracts from the fact that a real martial artist like Chona is playing her part serious, and trying to do her best in the role. What does this all mean? Watch it with a grain of salt, the low budget didn't allow for good death scenes, but they are headed in the right direction in action sequences. Hopefully a trend to have women like Chona more involved in real fight sequences will continue especially in light of Resident Evil. This movie rates a 6 out of 10.
