Trivia

Mark Aldred, who played the Russian crime boss (uncredited) was fired from his job as an English teacher in a Hong Kong primary school because the principal had discovered his role in this film. After a lengthy hearing, an industrial tribunal awarded Aldred HK$11,600 as a contract gratuity. However, it threw out his claim for around $79,000 in damages and dismissed Aldred's claims that his sacking was unlawful. See more »

Spine Tingling
11 October 2007 | by ferbs54See all my reviews

The title of this English-language, Hong Kong action flick, "Naked Weapon" (2002), may be a tad misleading. Though most of the gals in question here are undoubtedly quite dangerous customers, they nevertheless remain discreetly clothed, at least most of the time. The film, handsomely produced and directed with style to spare by Tony Ching Siu Tung, tells the story of Charlene, Katt and Jing, three kidnapped teenage girls who are the last survivors out of 40 at Madame M's six-year, private-island school for assassins. As a reward for their six years of grueling training, the girls are drugged, raped and sent out into the world to perform various hits for the good Madame, all the while being tracked by a dogged, Asian CIA agent. The film, I must say, though no John Woo thriller, does deliver the requisite goods. Thus, there are numerous over-the-top action sequences, many of them featuring spectacular swordsmanship, remarkable gunplay, and the antigravitic, bullet-timed martial-arts acrobatics that will be familiar to "Matrix" and "Crouching Tiger" fans. The film's two main characters, Charlene and Katt--played, respectively, by Maggie Q (a relative of Suzie?) and Anya--are both extremely attractive performers, and for the most part are fairly credible in their action scenes. The sisterly relationship between the two gives the film its heart; fellow captives at first, they grow to truly care for each other as they enter womanhood. The picture is constantly throwing unexpected twists at the viewer--the free-for-all melee in the barracks that Madame M (deliciously played by Almen Wong) demands, for example, is one that I surely never saw coming. So yeah, the whole flick is something of a gas. Those who have already seen it will perhaps understand me when I say that the picture's net effect is quite, uh, spine tingling...
