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.

Audience Reviews for The Girl from the Naked Eye

Asian crime drama. Guy goes hunting down who killed his girl... had potential, but I found this boring and easily forgettable.

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.

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.
