Storyline

A world-renowned spiritual leader arrives in the Asian nation of Purma to give a teaching to the faithful. Accompanying him is a retinue of monks and attendants, including his personal bodyguard, Deva, a beautiful Eurasian girl with extraordinary physical prowess. As soon as Bagwun and his party reach their hotel, they are attacked by assassins from a rebel terrorist group. Wounded, Bagwun needs to undergo a life-saving operation within twelve hours. However, his blood type is so rare that only a few donors can be found who can reach the capital in time to help. Rebel leader Lompoc obtains the same information, and has his agents kill off the donors one-by-one. Deva gets information about a possible 7th donor in a remote village in the North, and she decides to brave the dangerous journey alone into the guerrilla-held badlands. There, she finds the last possible donor whose blood can save Bagwun: a drunken, embittered former Special Forces operative named John Tremayne. Written by Anonymous

If you take the overall acting in this (or the dubbing for that matter), you might call it something unpleasant. Same goes for the story or character development or any "surprises" along the way. If you on other hand single out, Michael Biehns acting we're on something completely different here. Unfortunately there is only one Biehn here and he's also occupied shooting this movie (the editing of some scenes isn't the best either).

So why still give it 4 points? Well the action scenes, which actually should be the major concern of this, are quite decent. Not going "loco" for them, but shot and edited nice, and apparently rehearsed quite good. I didn't look it up, but Biehn must have taken some help for shooting those scenes and it was a good thing he did. Simon Yam might have been a great asset to that (his acting abilities in English are not that good, though still above average). The main actress is very beautiful and she might be able to deliver better performances than the one on display here. But if you just solely judge her for this, you'd be excused if you only wanted to watch still pictures of her (she's believable in the action scenes though, the ones without guns, that is).
