Little action with little acting. Not at all what the description implies
At first glance (the cover) You will expect an action packed martial arts movie with sword fighting. In all honesty this could not be further from the truth.
The acting is poor and the scenery is nothing you have not seen before. As far as the martial arts goes (the little that there is), It should have been left out of the movie all together.
As previously stated, It is obvious that the lead actress has no clue what she is doing and few fight scenes were filmed terribly. Selena Khoo, who plays the part of Lin is probably the best actor in this movie and that is not saying much.
I believe this film relies entirely on on the attractiveness of the actresses and their willingness to appear nude on camera. While this may be what some are looking for it is not what I was looking for upon selecting this title.
There is a lot of "Broken English" but this does not bother me though I could see how it would bother some.
In short, The MPAA rating of this movie gives a better description of what you will get than anything else. This movie is nothing more to me than a poorly written and filmed fantasy adult soft-core.
This film is not even a "b-movie"
