Following up on his vampire gangster flick A Bite of Love, Stephen Shin Kei-yin spins this knock off of Luc Besson's La Femme Nikita. The film centers on young wayward lass named Erica (Jade Leung), who escapes from police custody just before her court date. She is eventually hunted down by a secret government agency, whereupon she has a computer device, which improves her physical abilities, implanted in her skull. She is then forced to endure spy boot camp where she becomes schooled in all manners of killing people. While doing her first hit, her crime is captured by a wildlife photographer named Allen (Thomas Lam Cho-fai). Instead of icing the guy immediately, she falls for him. Soon her relationship with the agency becomes strained when Allen figures out what his new girlfriend does for a living. ~ Jonathan Crow, All Movie Guide

Stylish film goes straight for the jugular -- or the stomach by Waiguoren99 April 1, 2003 - 11:55 PM PST

This unabashed riff on La Femme Nikita is considerably more violent; it goes straight for the jugular -- or the stomach, depending on how you look at it. Although the ending is too abrupt for my taste (a setup for the sequel that followed?), the acting is very fine, the script is well-written, and the pacing sharp and crisp. Worth seeing.
