User ReviewsReview this title
the film is pretty good, it has just a little bit of vfx and cgi, so the majority of the act are real, and merely well coreographed action, and fights on bare hands alla muytai style. the actors are doing a good job, and makes this movie a better story than the script would have done ,without. the screenplay cant be more than 4 A4 sized pages, so its easy to phatom the point of the story.
if you are a superfanatic on the genre, dont bother watch this, for the rest of us curious gangsters of the sofaseat, can have a view, because the grumpy old man found this refreshing and well acted.
It appears some of the production is in English and at other times dubbed. Sets up for a series. I liked the bad girl eye make-up. Again we have women that can take more punches to the face than Joe Lewis. Oh yeah, there's a twist.
Guide: No swearing, sex, or nudity.
It felt like a teeny-bopper film with over-the top acting on the 'fashion' dude, and stale performances that struggled to convince. Add ridiculous long fight scenes poorly choreographed and a silly story to match. The directing and cinematography were decent - for a B grade film, but the writing/screenplay was terrible with cliches, plot issues and dragged out scenes.
By the quarter way mark, I had to fast forward scenes as I was getting bored, then midpoint into the movie I just gave up.
It's a very generous 5/10 from me, only taking into account it's a no-name actors Indo B-grade film that had some decent qualities.
The storyline is cliche but decent and the characters aren't bad. But that costume along with the "I just love martial arts!" fight scenes made this a wiener of a film. That, followed by two incomprehensible "credit flicks" made this a somewhat underwhelming effort. Better than Batman & Robin, and there have been worse superhero films, but this could have used better costuming, better choreography, and a whole lot more "What does she do if someone pulls out a shotgun or a sword?" Seriously, the loon didn't even carry a taser. That's just goofy, unrealistic writing.
And while I did like the main actress... about 30 to 40 more pounds of muscle would have made her character more believable. Why do they always portray female "fighter type" super heroes like frail supermodels? C'mon industry, get some wits.
The film seems to be inspired by Superman, Spiderman, that kind of superheroes. But too bad that Valentine doesn't have any superpowers. So, I'd say it's kind of boring because superhero stuffs are better than normal hero's. That being said, fighting choreographies are quite good. So, as for action film, it's very fine.
I kind of like those films where the main character is responsible for catching bad guys in every way possible. But in this film, Valentine seemed to be kind of weak and she sat the last one out. So, I think they need to improve this in some way.
What I watched is English dubbed version, so, I don't know what the original one looks like. But the English dubbed version is the worst. The voice artists are terrible. It seemed to me that like, they don't even know how to act, especially, the one who voice acted as Valentine. The way she speaks is so annoying. Most of English dubbed films are terrible. That's why I don't like to watch English dubbed versions. 😒
All in all, this film is just a fine hero film. But as for action, it's not so bad. Although dialogues are a bit weird, but it's still doing good. If they improve this film somehow, it'd be better than this.
