Storyline

In a futuristic world, Michelle lives everyday battling with DNA Hackers who use their skills to hack into people's bodies and kill them. She is an assassin, battling her past demons and trying to keep her younger and extroverted brother, Jackie, out of trouble. When Jackie gets involved in a petty crime of robbery, he propels himself into the world of DNA Hackers, Shylocks (Loan Sharks) and Gang Fights. Wanting the respect that the world has never given to him only makes it harder for Jackie to peel himself away from the underground trades, against the hopes of his sister, Michelle. Michelle always wanted to leave the city and lead a calm and quiet lifestyle. As emotions and gunfire get into the way, Michelle and Jackie soon find themselves battling between their lives and finding out that in an immoral world, love can still survive. Blood is thicker than water. Written by Pearry Reginald Teo

Bai Link naked
27 July 2014 | by sideriteSee all my reviews

The entire plot of the film is that someone created a lot of CGI just to make Bai Ling run around semi naked. She does look spectacular, but that isn't a reason to make a movie. At least not this kind of movie. Also Alec Newman plays a role that is supposedly important, but then he gets very little screen time. Maybe that's for the best, considering the quality of said role - Muad'dib it is not. And what the hell was Faye Dunaway doing in this film, anyway?

Other than that you get just bad scripting, bad dialogue, bad editing, bad CGI, bad acting, bad everything. And worse, it wasn't even bad enough to be laughable, just pitiable. Therefore I rate it plainly "boring" and you should try to avoid it.
