This question is inspired by the alternate title of this movie, "Warrior or Assassin". The answer: probably a mixture of both. Michael Worth's direction is often pointlessly gimmicky (even spoiling some potentially good fighting at the end), his story isn't all that original, and his attempts at imitating Tarantino (mostly by having minor characters talk about the most random things) come across as forced. On the other hand, his love for B-movies (and especially kung fu flicks) comes through clearly, he keeps his tongue in his cheek most of the time, and he has a good grasp of male fantasies (or maybe his fantasies are simply similar to mine!), presenting 3 different types of sexy girls (a redhead, a blonde and an Asian) to satisfy every taste. The lead, Jenya Lano, is best described by Worth's character in the film: "The kind of face that is perfect for B movies, waiting for her big break". Her best line: after trying to provoke a thug into a fight, he says "Sorry, but I don't like to hit girls" to which she responds "Don't worry. You won't get the chance". The interesting cast also includes Lorenzo Lamas and Jeff Fahey, but they are both basically used for "name value" and don't get to do much. (**)
