slow paced but hypnotic
19 February 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

The third installment of the Zero Woman series is perhaps it's weakest installment, but the vulnerable, human portrayal of the Asian assassin is pulled off well by the stunning Kumiko Takeda. The film has a very slow pacing to it, but it highlights the tension between the Zero Woman and her rival, Katsumura (played by Keiji Matsuda). The sex is minimal in this film, but there is more violence then all of the previous installments, which may be refreshing to some viewers. Takeda's Zero Woman is a determined, solemn young girl who is tired of killing and wants to walk away from it all. It is this beautiful actress that carries the film.
