Experts in martial arts and in art of lovemaking, both women's lives are woven together in a fatal collision ... Written by
I obtained this movie because I am a fan of femme fatale type characters, beautiful women who are also evil. The premise of this film is interesting, but the performances and action sequences are the worst I have seen since Wonder Woman.
The dialog is very lame and the actors are obviously uncomfortable with the English language. The main character is portrayed as an assassin, equally skilled with a rifle or with her body, but she fails to sell either to the viewers. There is no suspense or build-up. Everything is so predictable and the end most unsatisfying.
It seems that this is a weak attempt to copy successful Hong Kong female assassin films. It fails miserably on all accounts. The Chinese really know how to make these types of movies. Check out "Beyond Hypothermia" if you want to see what I mean.
I heartily encourage you lovers of assassin flicks to avoid this one, unless you can get it for free, and even then only if you have nothing else to do.
