| Incredibly boring
A blind female assassin lives alone in a remote house; her superiors occasionally send her "clients" / targets that she shoots right after having sex with them in her completely darkened bedroom. Things get complicated when another (male) assassin spies on her with his night-vision goggles and begins to fall in love with her when he sees her crying herself to sleep.

The English title for this movie is "Beautiful Weapon", and it makes it sound a lot more exciting than it is. The movie is VERY HARD TO SIT THROUGH. It could function better as a sleeping pill. The female lead is pretty and gives a fine performance, but I still had to fight off sleep on several occasions. There are also a couple of plot twists which are annoyingly lacking in logic. Because the movie did not offend me (unlike "Beautiful Prey", which did), I will not throw it away. But will I ever see it again? Highly doubtful. (*)
