"A good,well acted movie with interesting characters.C.S.(Jordan Chan),Tango(Cheng Kee Yin),and Blue(Kelly Chan) are 3 agents working for the C.I.A.,(who also have been friends since they were very young)specializing in a virtual reality training program that turns ordinary people into great fighters.When C.S.'s fiance is killed and Blue is kidnapped by an international terrorist named Alien,who brings her to Hong Kong,C.S. and Tango decide to train in the v.r. program to rescue Blue.After they rescue Blue,they still have to find Alien because he has his own plans of causing riots around the world by using subliminal messages.Blue and Tango learn from their superiors that the v.r. training has a side effect on some of the trainees.The side effect is violent outbursts,and C.S. expiriences this while searching for Alien.C.S. kills off a bunch of Aliens henchman during a fit of rage.When the three agents are ordered back to the U.S.,the C.I.A. tries to handcuff them and bring them back to be brainwashed.C.S. while escaping accidentally shoots Blue dead.This eventually leads to a showdown between C.S.,Tango(now brainwashed and ordered to kill C.S.),and Alien.A good all around film.The gunfights and fistfights are not the best ever put on film,but are still good and refreshingly original.Kelly Chan is one fine looking lady."
