Right up there with my name is "Domino" for stupid flashiness
6 October 2007 | by (Baghdad) – See all my reviews

Teenage girls that have no perception of reality may find this movie to be cutting edge and awesome. The rest of us will just be thinking- gee this is a rather flashy way of not telling an interesting story and the action is very limp for the most part.

About every 15 minutes there is 30 seconds of decent footage so there's some potential for who shot this movie but no potential for who wrote or directed it.

The girls are pretty so this is OK to completely waste a Saturday afternoon with but just realize this is a stupid poorly written comic book timewaster and nothing else.

PLOT: Attempts at making assassination look stylish and cool are coupled with unrealistic plot twists and dialog- at no point will you care about any of the characters. This follows several assassins as their lives start to collide. Cosmo magazine would be proud. The rest of us will wish the mall rat whores that purchase this trash were not altering the market of movies so much.

This movie could have been saved by being directed by John Woo with American and Chinese actors and a whole lot more character development and believable plot twists.

Go see a hong kong cinema gangster flick instead- those are the real deal- this is a mall imitation jewelry version.
