by Kozo:

     Francoise Yip is Fion Wong, an investment banker who’s set up to lose $100 million when she buys into an oil well scheme with Indonesian millionaire Donson Woo. When Donson betrays her, she jets to Indonesia to confront him. Once there, she discovers that the man she thought was Donson is not. Instead, Michael Chow is Donson Woo, a spoiled millionaire who spends his time hunting, watching movies, and not doing anything to help his business. Donson gets set up too, and eventually he and Fion go on the lam when their enemies frame them for more than a little money laundering. Pang Dan is Donson Woo’s sexy secretary. 
     The decent set up to this techo-thriller is ruined by the plot twists, which just don’t gel with the rest of the film. Sure, the twists help surprise the audience, but they make absolutely no sense with the earlier sections of the film. Sloppy filmmaking aside, the film provides some low-brow entertainment. Pang Dan does an oddly out-of-place striptease, and Yip is sexy, but that really isn’t anything new. The action is decent, if not somewhat questionable. When did Donson Woo, spoiled millionaire, learn how to kick ass so well? The biggest plus here is an accurate computer interface, which is new for nearly any film made nowadays. Sadly, that isn't much to write home about.  (
