Starring: A bunch of martial artists, stunt men and extras.
Review in a nutshell: I couldn’t make myself focus on this Sin City rip off for more than 5 minutes at a time without getting annoyed. It was just too slow and I didn’t find it visually interesting AT ALL. Perhaps because I’m a straight 38 year old woman. Perhaps because the “love interest” was an underage prostitute, half the age of the hero. I’m not sure. But this was the kind of movie I imagine heterosexual teenage boys like to watch when no one is home. If you don’t fall into that demographic, skip this and watch Brick instead. Or Payback.
Where I found it: Netflix
How much I paid for it: 84 minutes of my life
Points of interest: Dominique Swain who portrayed Lolita in the late ’90’s is in this. This is a movie about a guy in love with a 16 year old girl. Coincidence? Yeah, probably.
The Money Shot: When the teenager starts reciting poetry I promise you will want to shoot someone.
