You could not really accuse Chinese film director Jin Wong of having a spotless reputation. In fact, earlier movies like High Risk and The Duel left audiences mostly cold and failed to deliver on their promise of all out action and suspense. So, where do 2002 offering Naked Weapon stand; is it as lackluster and predictable or has Wong managed to put together a half decent thriller this time?
Well, suffice to say, Naked Weapon has come as a bit of a surprise to most. Whilst it is certainly not a cinematic masterpiece, nor does it reinvent the wheel, it nevertheless manages to be a thoroughly entertaining romp. The plot itself is a little bit farcical, but it has echoes of old school Charlie’s Angels, which is rarely a bad thing. It centers on a group of young girls who are abducted and forced to train as international assassins.
