The movie opens with a high level party which includes many nude call girls. Cat (Paz Vega), one of the escorts at the party who managed to keep her clothes on, witnesses the killing of multiple guests, including other girls, is on the lam. She steals a car and phone from two Americans who provide the comic relief for the film (Alphonso McAuley and Scott Mechlowicz). McAuley talks Scott into being a detective, "C'mon man. Be a dic." They open up an office in a porno theater with secretary D.L. Hughley.

The nasty killing incident was caught on tape. Cat steals the hard drive from a computer before she leaves the party. An assassin, Helen aka Virginia Wolf (also goes by Emily Bronte), is called in to kill her. Played by Janet McTeer she reminded me of Helen Mirren in "Red". She has a dry humor to her as she is a polite "Mary Poppins" killer. In one scene she apologizes to a man she has tortured for "taking up so much of his morning...but you do understand my need to be thorough." She also has her own theme music (Zombies' "She's not there") which is part of the fun.

The whole world is searching for the missing Paz. Our hero detectives decide to make her their first case. Paz scams her way across Europe (funny how guys want to help a beautiful woman sporting legs and cleavage) and from TV news shows she realizes the killings involved an important US government official.

The movie creates wonderful characters. It has numerous funny lines and some with sexual innuendos, for instance:

Hughley claims the shark ate his wife piece by piece. McAuley asks, "Didn't he eat her whole?" Hughley, "Yeah. He ate that too.

I did not think this movie would be as good as it was. The characters were very good actors and believable for the most. I will say to stay away from this movie if you are offended by nudity as there is full frontal nudity within the first 10 minutes.

Whew! OK, it begins with a plethora of gratuitous nudity, and the characters have to be introduced with profiles, I guess so we can keep track. A whole lot of gratuitous violence and killing follows. Then, it has its comedic moments, and the whole picture starts making sense after about an hour. If one is patient enough, there's a really great movie here. Good guys are bad, bad guys are good. Remember, this movie requires patience--unless one's in it for the nudity and violence.

That is exactly what happened with this gem of a movie. Scott Mechlowicz and Alphonso Mcauley star as our heroes? they are both so likable and funny. There is a very straight laced lady assassin...tremendous and quite nasty too. Paz Vega as Cat seems along for a very fun ride. Dark humor and great dialogue and sensational acting make this a big thumbs up for me. What a very pleasant surprise.

I came across this movie in my local video store and decided to rent it & give it a watch. The action in this movie wasn't exactly what I was expecting, and the acting & quality of the movie wasn't always exactly what you'd call top notch, but it did have it's moments and was overall not too bad of a watch. I don't think I'd ever buy it though probably. If you're thinking about checking this movie out, I'd give it a watch first before buying and see what you think about it...it's at least worth that.

I have to say, the trailer was okay but the movie was magnificent. Every step of the way was jaw dropping. Some of the things that occur are extreme but you can tell they didn't pull any punches and willingly stepped over certain lines to differentiate this film from others in the same category. Why more people aren't familiar with this flick? i don't know but I will recommend this to everyone i know that likes this drama
