Disappointing to say the least
10 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

Well how do I put it, one of my favorite female martial artists brought down to this level, what were they thinking, soft porn for gay men or just a flesh fest for the ladies, acting, well there wasn't any. For a martial arts movie the fight scenes and action were at the best lacking. I was expecting a film that was worth watching, however I found myself fast forwarding to avoid the shower of bad acting and semi-nudity. I find it insulting that the martial artists showed little if any talent in both acting and martial arts, adding insult to injury they have the leading lady as a minimal, non-fighting entity, this from a lady who has been five-time World Karate Champion in forms and weapons between 1981 and 1985.
