Newcomer Jason Yee proves plenty adept at chopsocky, but his chops are nonexistent on the thesping side.

In its moments of sometimes comically violent antagonism, the movie shows some flashes of genre pizazz.

At times off-putting, at other times outright campy, "The Girl From the Naked Eye" does offer a measured amount of queasy fun.

There's a lot to like about the action film "The Girl From the Naked Eye," especially some crisp martial arts fight sequences and the subtle sense of humor that surfaces now and then.

It isn't a great movie, but it looks terrific and makes me look forward to the next film by its director, David Ren.

There are dozens of better, riskier, more interesting films that go unreleased every year-why this militantly dull effort is taking their place is its only worthwhile mystery.

It's a pretty good little noir with excellent fighting and the usual story. I liked the tone, I liked the photography, and I liked the characters. The pace is a little maddening, but the film is ultimately efficient.

A pulpy, low-budget slice of film noir cross-pollinated with a martial arts flick, this Girl wins no awards for great originality but nonetheless serves as a stylish and engaging vehicle for the surly charms of Jason Yee.

It might be difficult to stifle laughter while watching this stylish but overwrought noir thriller.

A compelling chopsocky made in America, featuring a homegrown matinee idol who might very well blossom into the next Bruce Lee.

The best thing to come from the film is a desire to see what Ren and friends do next... hopefully with an even bigger budget.

The Girl from the Naked Eye has heart, which is more than can be said of some other recent genre throwbacks, but it ultimately makes barely a splash.

Audience Reviews for The Girl from the Naked Eye

An interesting noir thriller, The Girl from the Naked Eye has an impressive visual style but lacks a bit in storytelling. When a call girl is found murdered her driver sets out for revenge and turns on his bosses in order to find those responsible. It's a rather formulaic plot and the characters are the usual stereotypes. But this is made up for by the fight sequences, which bring a lot of energy to the film (though the fights start to become a little too choreographed). The Girl from the Naked Eye doesn't have much originality, but it's entertaining and has a creative aesthetic.

So imagine you're me and you get a call to an early screening of an upcoming movie you never heard about. Now imagine you say yes and realizing you, along with your girlfriend you brought, and seven other people are the only one at the screening. Now you think an early screening of a movie would be good, except the movie I watched was poorly made.

The Girl from the Naked Eye is about Jake, a driver for a seedy escort service, who is a street thug type who falls for a witty 16 year old named Sandy. One night Sandy is found murdered, and Jake will do whatever it take to avenge Sandy. The story is incredibly sexist to women, only one woman in the whole movie doesn't care about sex. It sends the idea that women are basically just sex objects and prostitutes, which is why my girlfriend got mad at me for taking her to this screening. What I found most offensive is this line from the actual which goes something like, "The only thing more useless than a whore is a dead whore" which make us guys look very bad in this movie. Everything you could ever find wrong about a guy will be found with every single male character in this movie.

Now I know the movie hasn't officially come out yet, when I reviewed this movie that is, but there so many problem with his movie that'll lead it to failure. It has some of the most boring and lamest action scenes ever filmed in a movie. You'll be pretty unambitious to sit through this mess of movie with uninteresting characters and a weak story if that not all, we also have weak action sequences. One thing you should be aware of is that the music they play during these action scenes are hilarious makes it look more like a violent comedy and looses all seriousness it had, or attempted to have to be more accurate. You have no idea what the movie is trying to be as tries to blend drama, humor, and romance and does none of them right. The actors, are well pretty terrible. You know you have a pretty bad cast if you also come to the hate the good guys in this movie.

So clearly I hated this movie, but only one thing helped me get through this mess is Jake. Our hero Jake actually respect Sandy, but that's the only reason why it doesn't get a zero. Other than that Jake is a very unlikable hero and dumb one at that too. In a scene where he goes to a motel and beats up like six in the lamest way possible, he takes out a gun he had the whole time and finally decide to use the gun. It's a dumb, abysmal, poorly made movie.

Note: I still haven't gotten an answer from the studio on why I got an early screening. I'm not sure why out of all people I got chosen, I wonder if this means I'm legit as a critic.
