Movie Reviews

Movie ruined by technical flaws
Ben T. Larson | Leesburg, FL United States | 11/24/2008
(2 out of 5 stars)

"was so looking forward to seeing Makiko Kuno again after Beautiful Hunter, and she was still worth seeing, but the flaws in this film just made barely watchable.

The film should have been made before Beautiful Hunter, as it is a story of how she became an assassin - a prequel, if you will. It was probably just trading on that film's success. One suspects that it wasn't even released in Japan, as the title is English.

The translation was so bad that it really distracted from the story. You were focused on the mismatch of the language instead of the story's progression. Also some of the supporting cast really overacted their parts to the point that they were comical.

It was a good story and Kuno is always worth seeing, but it really needs work."
