Held against her will for years by a sadistic Yakuza boss, the seductively dangerous Everly finally gets a chance to break free from slavery. Armed with an almost inexhaustible arsenal of destructive weaponry and a rabid will to survive, the wronged woman can now turn the tables on her evil tormentors, as a lucrative open contact on Everly's head attracts an endless wave of cutthroats. However, with the lives of her estranged mother and her little daughter under threat, only a miracle can get Everly out of a tight spot. Can she single-handedly ward off a merciless onslaught of assassins to save her family? Written by Nick Riganas

Everly is clearly shot in her side while wearing a white nightie. However, in scenes afterwards, it is noticeable that there is no entrance hole nor an exit hole in the garment. Only blood can be seen where she had been shot. See more »

User Reviews

Salma Hayek is always worth the watch!

As if I needed to convince you to see something that the legendary Salma Hayek is in. This woman is so hot, it's fire on the big screen.

The sexy MILF plays a whore who double crossed her pimp who's a Yakuza and sends everything he has after her in order to prevent her from seeing her daughter one last time and making sure she's safe.If you're a fan of Salma Hayek , you'll check it out.

For the two of you who do not like Salma Hayek (can't be more than that) The movie is satire on b-movie camp. It's very action packed and humorous, just filled with total amusement. A lot is happening in such a small space and the pace of the thrills continues throughout the whole movie.

I have to say, my only issue is, the type of genre this movie falls under forces me to think of such directors as Robert Rodriguez and his best mate Quentin Tarantino who's style would have brought something far better to the film. Sorry Joe Lynch, your directing style was OK, but I feel Salma should have made that call to her Desperado director buddy. It's the type of thing they do and your doing it on lesser terms.

Overall, the movie is a surprising action packed thrill ride that's fun to watched increased by the fabulous eye candy of Salma Hayek. worth wild movie going experience.
