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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.
