This action story takes place in Shanghai, China where Gilda, a stunning blonde 'femme Nikita' is commissioned to take out an important Lebanese official.

She takes up residence in a beautiful condo where she gets to know her neighbor, Lin, a beautiful Chinese girl who turns out to be a high-class call girl. Their friendship develops as they help one another along the way as they are betrayed by their hearts for men who turn out to be scoundrels.

Frankly put, I spent half the film wondering if it was a porno or not. Gratuitous skin scenes that bring nothing neither to the plot nor to the action make for a drawn-out movie that drastically dilutes whatever "action" was supposed to be there. As has already been noted, the fight scenes are nothing to phone home about, although I did find that the dojo scene was slightly better thought-out than the rest of the film. For the rest, the action is quite lacking. No planning before hand, no surprise in execution, no problem with the getaway, and a very lame showing of local mafia add up to nothing to get excited about. Add to that the school-level camera angles, bad pronunciation all around and a total absence of any sort of anticipation and what you get is a porno film - without the hardcore sex. The single redeeming feature of this mess is Mrs. Osvart's body. Fine though it is, it's hardly enough to carry a film.
