What happens when you clone a clone?
I used to think it would be some kind Brundlefly would spring forth and leave an indelible stamp on my psyche but then again, I hadn’t seen The Girl from the Naked Eye yet. A clone of a clone, apparently, limps around for a bit, tries to shock you then eventually. David Ren’s martial arts/film noir film follows Jake (Jason Yee, who also co-wrote) a man working for a pimp to pay off his gambling debts which is just as dull as it sounds. Jake befriends one of the prostitutes, Sandy, and seeks to avenge her death after she’s murdered. Shot and written in the style of Sin City with the fighting of a Hong Kong action film, it’s a truly odd combination that accomplishes neither objective.
