Movie Info

In a future dystopia where thorough DNA scans are required to gain entrance into every major city, a world-class assassin (Bai Ling) is assigned the task of eliminating rogue DNA hackers. The sun has scorched the earth, and now dense clouds hang above overpopulated megacities. Those whose DNA is considered unworthy are locked out of the cities and forced to wander the wastelands. It's Michelle's duty to ensure that no undesirables gain entry into the city, and she earns a substantial paycheck for doing so. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Main characters are relatively well played and there are some cool (yet short) fighting scenes where Bai Ling shows some skills. The heroine is an anti-hero, a paid assassin who kills DNA Hackers, people who use genetic manipulation to get into places they shouldn't. Her brother is a gambling junkie and a self-destructive idiot. The hairstyle, face paintings, the clothes, the guns - just WOW! She's like the ultimate cyberpunk chick! There is a short shower scene. And a short sex scene! A flick which tries to enter the Aeon Flux scene, it is hard to recommend this movie for the plot, which is dark and twisted; but, it is hard not to admire the effort in art and in cinema design which went into creating this futuristic urban hell on earth. If you are in this cyber-punk scene or Bai Ling's then it's worth a watch, but don't be expecting much!!

Worst futuristic film based on the comic book series "The DNA Hacker Chronicles" because of the action sequences looked terrible. The production deisgn with the backgrounds of the futuristic world weren't bad at all, but quite strange. Bai Ling did a fine performance as the assassin, but she looked sexy in her outfits.
