The script and direction are equally inept, with a series of overwrought action sequences and ludicrous plot twists that come suspiciously close to parody.

Think the Bourne franchise meets the Bond franchise, without the wit or action.

What do belly dancers, wigs, shrinks, split personalities and secret ops sexpot mercenary mayhem have to do with a movie? Well, an awful lot it seems, in this CIA espionage freakout that makes waterboarding appear tame by comparison.

[A] dippy hodgepodge of hitman action, illogical romance and geopolitical commentary.

Why is Slater in this? Why are Sutherland and Spall? Why am I even watching it?

Corny action scenes and borderline-hilarious direction by Isaac Florentine mark the film as an obvious straight-to-video item that somehow took a wrong turn into a movie theater.

Mr. Slater valiantly tries to appear turned on by his leading lady's shimmying midsection, but he might as well be watching a performing dog for all the heat mustered between them.

In trying to pass off the obvious as some type of mystery, Assassin's Bullet repeatedly insults viewer intelligence until the whole effort transforms into unintentional camp.

This psychologically tinged thriller about a mysterious female assassin won't erase memories of La Femma Nikita.

Assassin's Bullet feels like a shameless, dismal vanity project.

Much of this makes little sense, but it's hard to care.

The cockeyed C-quality B movie, shot on location with a Balkan supporting cast and crew, mixes a precarious pileup of visual clichés with over-staged action sequences.

Fans of incessant flashbacks and endless whooshing zooms into close-ups will find much to love about Assassin's Bullet; less satisfied, alas, will be those with a fondness for lucid plotting, compelling intrigue, and credible performances.

Isaac Florentine's film is maligned with gaping plot holes, terrible expository dialogue, and obvious moments of foreshadowing.
