I remember watching this at my friend's house when we were in eighth grade and when it was over neither of knew anything that had happened in the last two hours. It was instantly forgettable, almost as if it was wiping our memories as we watched it telling us at the same time, subliminally, that everything Lucy Lui and Antonio Banderas would ever do after that would be terrible and that they were terrible people for being a part of this project.
Apart from one scene, which I call "Lucy Liu vs the Swat team," this movie is horrendous. That scene however is awesome, and if you like martial arts movies should rent it just for that. Fast forward to the fight scene though, the rest of it is simply dreadful.
It's amazing that a film with this many explosions is this boring. Possibly because they used more slo mo than all the Matrix movies and the 300 combined. Looks like everyone was in it for the paycheck too as there's no great performances, and the music is kinda crap.
My god... I mean, low expectations be damned, this movie blew me away with its unapologetic shittyness... Shot in Vancouver, SET in Vancouver (thanks, KAOS) and is really just poorly-planned action scenes strung together with plot that I assume originated from monkey butts. When I tried to figure out what was going on in the movie, my brain farted.
No - it's not as bad as the critics say. But, no; it isn't at all good either. Lucy Liu and Antonio Banderas fire a lot of guns and blow a lot of things up in a script that doesn't make a lot of sense (why are the FBI in Canada?). Nevertheless, the fight scenes are relatively well done - and while Banderas is wasted, Lucy Liu kick-flipping her way around with a MATRIX knock-off trenchcoat is eminently amusing. Best watched drunk and with friends.
An atrociously bad movie. The plot is retarded and the dialog is horrendous. The action sequences as so awfully shot and put together than what can normally give a bad action movie a moment or two of glory is completely missed here. While I can appreciate a movie as "so bad it's good" this movie goes from "so bad" to "so bad it's awful" to "cinematic cancer" to "cinematic genocide" in the first half hour. Needless to say never, ever see this. It IS just as bad as everyone says.
For a director who abbreviates his name to 'Kaos', he makes a pretty mediocre and poorly choreographed action film. It's pretty minor and forgettable, how not to make an action movie or even to create individual action sequences. Only Antonio Banderas seems to have some prescience in this; he looks like he wandered onto the set with a hangover, but his charisma makes it work for the paper-thin character. Aside from that, there are far better films to dig up in this genre.
