2 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

Violent Femme

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

The tenth film of 2006 to be withheld from critics, this nearly incomprehensible guilty pleasure is actually a great deal of fun. Milla Jovovich stars as the stylishly sexy heroine in a skin-tight, midriff revealing costume, who kills hundreds of faceless bad guys with karate kicks, broadswords and automatic firearms. Her goal is to save a young clone (Cameron Bright) that carries a deadly virus within his bloodstream. Director Kurt Wimmer (Equilibrium) coats everything in a retouched, digital sheen making characters look less human. But he also sustains his action shots a few beats longer than most, creates a strikingly insulated color scheme, and hits a non-pretentious tone that allows for unintentional, infectious silliness. William Fichtner co-stars as the archetypal introverted science nerd.
