Entertaining film, but 20 seconds too long.
12 July 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Highly entertaining film, which could have been vastly improved by a simple 20 second cut at the end of the fight sequence where the lady in question takes on the rival gang. I like a bit of ultraviolence as well as the next chap, and the fight sequences in this film are well choreographed and well executed, and sit quite happily in what is essentially a comedy. But really, the final blows in the last set-piece are thoroughly unsporting, not to mention unpleasant, and totally unnecessary from the dramatic point of view: the direct consequence of those few seconds could have been brought about at any stage of the fight. So a 7, rather than an 8 or a 9 because of the nasty taste that is left behind.
