Storyline

A world-renowned spiritual leader arrives in the Asian nation of Purma to give a teaching to the faithful. Accompanying him is a retinue of monks and attendants, including his personal bodyguard, Deva, a beautiful Eurasian girl with extraordinary physical prowess. As soon as Bagwun and his party reach their hotel, they are attacked by assassins from a rebel terrorist group. Wounded, Bagwun needs to undergo a life-saving operation within twelve hours. However, his blood type is so rare that only a few donors can be found who can reach the capital in time to help. Rebel leader Lompoc obtains the same information, and has his agents kill off the donors one-by-one. Deva gets information about a possible 7th donor in a remote village in the North, and she decides to brave the dangerous journey alone into the guerrilla-held badlands. There, she finds the last possible donor whose blood can save Bagwun: a drunken, embittered former Special Forces operative named John Tremayne. Written by Anonymous

Entertaining B-movie
23 January 2012 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Fans of films like Navy Seals (1990, Rambo 2-4, Men of War (1994) etc will probably enjoy this film, the rest not so much.

Story is simple, about Deva(Phoenix Chou) who is protector of a religious leader (who resembles Dalai Lama)Bagwun. Bagwun needs a blood donor and, well, there's were Michael Biehn comes in.

Very generic film, filled clichés and bad SFX but with fairly decent martial art scenes. The biggest surprise of the film is Phoenix Chou who according to internet sources used to be a model, but is definitely just as good as Michelle Yeoh, Chingmy Yau, Maggie Q etc.

Her acting is flawed at times, her inexperience shines through, but with the material given to her, she really is impressive. Together with Michael Biehn they make this very flawed movie work.

Oddly, Michael Biehn has distanced himself from this movie, and truth be told it's not very good, however, Biehn starred in more flawed films like Rampage (1987)and shouldn't be so ashamed of this film.

Overall, if you are looking cheaply made action thriller with a girl that knows how to kick ass, without high production values, directing, script, then this movie is for you.
