If you like martial arts this is a must see. Tekken, Ong-Bak, Tekken, DOA, Ninja Assassin, Ong-Bak... yeah I know I said a couple of titles twice but there really aren't that many good martial arts movies out there, not recently anyway. Good martial arts movies are few when compared to the other genres, but this is one of them, and if you're a big fan of good action like I am it's a must see.
The filmography and the game soundtrack make it seem a bit more like a video game than a movie (not strange since it's based on one), but that's good, I have nothing against that. The movie manages to maintain pace and variative fighting sequences all the way through, and I especially love the icy introduction. The main character sometimes looks like she has anorexia, and who knows maybe she does, but for the most part the movie is great. There are few flaws, and even if the acting isn't always the greatest, it surely is a movie worth watching. That much is guaranteed.
It's not amazing, but it's not bad either, it's just another movie. One that doesn't stand out yet merits a watch anyway for those entertained by fighting.
I'll give it a...
rated 3/5: not bad
