The movie was merely okay for the first 20 minutes or so. Totally predictable and cliché, but watchable. At the point the the main character, who's only claim to fame is being a marine widower kills the kendo master in a katana duel, the movie just got moronic. From the evil villainess's change of heart that would rival the idiocy of the Baroness falling for Duke, to the terrible montage glossing over the more interesting looking fight scenes, the movie robs the viewer of any entertainment, despite the pornographic violence and the T&A.
Sam Jackson knocks it out the park with his contemptuous performance. It's clearly a mailed in effort, which is all this movie deserves.
