Surely watching paint dry is more entertaining than this "movie"
The obvious selling point of this movie was the number of scantily clad ladies battling each other. In bullet time. That's it.
It would've been more enjoyable if the action wasn't over the top...I mean come on, breaking glass that is thrown at you with your bare fists, catching the broken glass fragments, then throwing it back to where it came from? In one sequence? Please.
The dialogue was so cheesy, I couldn't tell if it was Swiss or cheddar.
I always thought that Daniel Wu was a decent actor, until this "action masterpiece" came along. He should choose his future roles carefully or get a better agent.
Another thing that bothered me was that there was this tree trying hard to act well....oh wait, that was Maggie Q. My mistake.
Do yourselves a favour...since they say this kind of movie is one where you leave your brain at the door before watching, make sure you know where you left it, because mine ran away realizing it doesn't want to go back in my head anymore after I saw this so-called, "movie". Go see "So Close" instead. At least the cast on that flick are proven "actors".
Could I have the 2 hours I wasted on this movie back please?
1/10. (1 for the effort)
