    Fair

    I was randomly at a store the other day and this movie just kind of popped out at me. The whole idea behind the movie sounded kind of cool, and it was. I was familiar with Bai Ling from such movies as Crank 2 and Wild Wild West and whatnot too. The movie wasn't very much, so I just went ahead and bought it. The movie in itself was pretty cool, but I was kind of disappointed in how little action there actually was in it, and some of the acting from certain parties was kinda sub par...and it was it was definitely a B grade movie. Some of the special effects and everything else left a small bit to be desired, though the CGI at the beginning and the end of the movie was pretty cool. All in all, this was a decent movie, but it could have been made better. Still, if you're into futuristic sci fi movies and all that, and don't mind a slight bit of gore and everything, I would still say that it's worth at least a watch.
