| Sort of cool.
Okay, the weakest part of the film is actress Chung Lai! Her character, Jing, has all the charisma of a sour grapefruit and her acting is dull at best. Granted, this may or may not be because of a language barrier. In spite of that, I must admit there is something sensual and erotic about her. However, I found the story about unwanted baby girls, left in the river to drown, then rescued by the Tongs and trained from infancy to be assassins, to be very cool. The surrounding cast is quite good. Madsen-the-mumbler, his sleaze factor in hyper-drive, is totally believable as the crooked Dan Olinghouse, Brad Dourif, Richard Hatch and Michael Chan are all very strong. Cary Tagawa is a bit over the top as he chews up the scenery, but it's Louis Herthum and Brad Hunt that really stand out as Browner and Sink, Madsen's dim witted sidekicks. The action sequences rise above a lot of the low budget martial arts films and a few of the stunts are downright spectacular! Production values are about what you'd expect from a direct to video film but overall I did enjoy it.
