Storyline

Double agent Picasso Trigger is assassinated in Paris by double-crossing bad guy Miguel Ortiz. Then Ortiz begins eliminating agents of The Agency who were involved in his brother's death. The Agency (belatedly) springs into action to stop Ortiz' heinous activities. The usual gunplay, romance, and nifty toys with bombs ensue. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

either you're a fan of Sidaris or you're not
6 June 2006 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

The third film in the long "babes with guns" series, has the buxom beauties of a government agency that at this point of the series hadn't been named, go after baddie Miguel Ortiz after he kills secret agent Picasso Trigger. A steady stream of bad acting, massive explosions and even more massive mammeries (but less nudity than most of the other films in the series). When it comes down to it Andy Sidaris's near-trademark mixture of boobs, bullets, and bad acting is not for everyone. You either enjoy the concoction or you don't. I'm more in the former than the latter as I see them as fairly innocent time-wasting eye candy. Just go with it and you'll enjoy to an extant. And while this one might not be his best film (that would be "Do or Die" in case you're wondering), it's still enjoyable if you just remember to turn your brain off at the door.

My Grade: C+

Eye Candy: Cynthia Brimhall, Hope Carlton, Patty Duffek, Kym Malin, and Don Spier all show various amounts of gratuitous skin.

DVD Extras: Introduction with Andy and Julie Strain; Director's Commantary; 36 minute Behind the scenes featurette (featuring abundant nudity); Production Stills; Sndy Sidaris filmography; web-links; Theatrical Trailer; and Trailers for 11 other Sidaris films (all with abundant nudity)

Easter Egg: There's one hidden in the main menu featuring a nearly fully nude Julie Strain goofing off.
