The story: when a young call girl (Samantha Streets, Alien Raiders) is mysteriously killed, her only friend (Jason Yee, Dark Assassin) must untangle a deadly urban web to find the murderer.
Be aware, folks, that this is basically an action-packed neo noir flick - something like Sin City without superhuman characters but with a lot more martial arts. It's pulled off surprisingly well, by a surprisingly good cast: Jason Yee is yards ahead of Seagal or Statham as a dramatic action hero, and Samantha Streets is no mere pretty face; and along with an expectedly good performance by Gary Stretch (Alexander) as a dirty cop and an amazingly adept portrayal by Ron Yuan (Blood & Bone) as a pimp, there's a pretty good ensemble to be had here.Read more ›
Only she isn't.
Well, OK, i guess she is. Jake, a bodyguard for call girls whose favorite girl Sandy has just been killed, is leaving a whore house after stealing his boss' client list when he gets in an elevator. There, in a sweater and overcoat, is Sasha Grey. She says "Are you Jake? i heard about Sandy. i'm sorry." They get to the bottom floor and Jake leaves. There, you now have all 5 seconds of Sasha Grey's appearance in the film. She's the background character with essentially no lines who is wearing more clothing than any 3 other people combined.
So i'm subtracting a star for flat out dishonesty. What about the movie itself? Not bad.
Jake is the main character. He is played by Jason Lee. Jason Lee is also the narrator. And writer. He beats up lots of people and he's good at it. My favorite part is the final hallway fight, which is like a shortened, not quite as awesome version of The Raid. If you haven't seen that fight, Jake ends most fights with 2 or 3 hits so you make the fight last long by throwing a dozen guys at him. How can our hero beat a dozen men? He doesn't.Read more ›
A 38 year old bouncer for the Naked Lady strip joint, etc., had affection for a 16 year old that work for the Naked Lady as a prostitute who he drove to locations. There’s a sweetness and caring that develops between them with no sex. Shooting, cool realistic martial arts, human caring and the constant feeling of Asian and American emendated from the film. It starts out with a jolting bang and goes on from there, without telling every thing. It’s a different type of film but entertaining. No it’s not an academy awards winner, just pure pleasure to watch.
I would recommed this to anyone that enjoys a good exciting romp in the underbelly of the gangster world.
The action in this one is pretty good. Less artistic and using objects in the room than a Jackie Chan film, but the same level of martial arts dominating the action of the storyline in this one. This is a lot more violent than Chan's films though. Sure it's a bit unrealistic but if you want a film with lots of fights scenes, this is a good one for that.

Late August and most of September is usually a crappy time of year for films at least for me. Sure there is Expendables 2 out and Lawless coming out Friday, but they aren't movies... Read morePublished on August 29, 2012 by J. McGinn
