Too hollywoodian for my taste. A girl couldn't beat him with two hands, but succeeded with a broken wrist. And to be honest, a girl should be dead by now if a man like this one hit her for real like he did.

I liked it. Very nicely done. I wish this director the best in getting his career going, not a bad start!

Cool trailer but the fighting...not so much.

Pretty horrible fight choreography. kind of sad that my thought when the "generic bad guy" references her languishing in a wannabe UFC was that its no reason she's languishing punching as badly as she is...

Meh. Not really that engaging. Poor fight choreography. Decent Acting, no point and was very generic. But GREAT CINEMATOGRAPHY. That was certainly the highlight.
