I was expecting some good fun from this movie because its directed by Cory Yuen, who also did the fight choreography on Transporter 2 which was just amazing. Anyways this was a good solid PG-13 action film with nonstop fighting and I liked it, I mean I have seen better, but I have seen much worse also. Jaime Pressly is great in this movie along with Eric Roberts and Devon Aoki. Great cast and great fights makes this out to be a pretty good movie, plus hot babes that can fight just never gets old in the action genre to me. Overall I gave this movie a 7 out of 10 because I thought it was good and entertaining but it could have been a little better if it had been rated R or if the fights were extended a little more.
7 out of 10, recommended for fight fans and action junkies like myself.
