The best part of this film is the martial arts section where the ballerina figures out how to use her gifts as a prima ballerina to fight, first in prison and later in a variety of situations. The worst part of the film is the continuous flashbacks that are truly overdone. Less would be more. Another good feature is the acting which is more than acceptable, especially the hit-man who draconicly puffs his lips after each kill. There are some continuity problems in the script and a few scenes that don't ring true, much less even possible. But with the ballerina fight scenes, it's worth a visit.
