This wasn't to bad, it could have been better
18 November 2002 | by kyleMetalSee all my reviews

I saw this movie a while back and it still sticks out in my head. Especially this one bizarre scene where the female assassin is being tortured by the church for betraying them, some weird looking lady takes this electric tazzer like stick, after electrocuting the poor half-naked girl she shoves the electric zapper between her legs, i couldn't tell if she was in pain or having an orgasm, it was the weirdiest scene i've ever seeen in my life. The whole story is weird, all and all i thought could have been better. Get the DVD which is in English, because the VHS is only available in japanese without any subtitles.
