First, try to follow this: It's a girl's 30th birthday, apparently old in this culture. She complains about needing clients for a boxing business--signals plot-line. She goes to the gym. Another girl at the gym whines about being dumped, hits on customers, and her and the first girl become business buddies after this one knocks out her ex- boyfriend. That night, the 30-year-old has a birthday party and her old friend shows up. All three girls become friends, get tricked into joining an underground fighting tournament--they call a trafficking syndicate later and this leads to a fight with the traffickers in the end.
Are you confused too? First it's about a newly 30-year-old looking for business and somehow the story arches into something about women being trafficked into slavery--by the way it WAS an underground fighting theme until the director or writer changed their mind about that too.
Too many directions.
A pro to the film: instead of the three main characters being these she-demons with masterful martial arts skills, they are normal women who know self-defense in different martial arts styles. Even then, the character, Miu played by actress Dada Lo fights well one second and then decides she can't fight at all and gets beaten up easily later on. Same with the other characters, but her to a greater extent.
I would not recommend this movie, I'd say to see either Cold Fusion, or Chai Lai Angels: Dangerous Flowers, or the Naked trilogy: Naked Weapon, Naked Soldier, and Naked Killer instead. If you want to see this, have at it.
