Watch this if you liked: “Naked Killer” and “Naked Weapon”

With this latest addition to his "Naked" series that has timely exploded from Hong Kong cinema once in a decade, it has become an almost accepted fact of life for producer Wong Jin to relive his cheesy fantasy of having a cast of (former) models playing as brainwashed female assassins trained since childhood by a international crime organization, delivering judicious murder on targets of the opposite gender, before one of them unknowingly falls in love with a law enforcement officer on their tail, to bring a climatic showdown on the organization that started it all.

"Naked Soldier" is the third in the series to bear the nude title, following 1992's "Naked Killer" and 2002's "Naked Weapon", which starred a then less-known Maggie Q, as the aforementioned redeemed assassin. This time around, we have Jennifer Tse, the model-turned-actress younger sister of Nicholas Tse in the lead while renowned editor-turned-director Marco Mak helms this ship to hit the iceberg of Wong Jin's ever bad writing, to sink like the hole-riddled piece of cheese that it is.

Make no mistake. This movie is made with a formulaic method to be an almost cloned copy of Maggie Q's cheap vehicle ten years ago. The exact circumstance of Phoenix's (Jennifer's character) internment to be an assassin, the slapstick performance (even those from the bigger stars), the shallow romance, the laughable insertion of fight sequences and the thank-god-it's-over climax is an admirable feat of replication in its own right, if there was one quality that is respectable about this movie. However, it is hard to tell if the costumed minions and mini-bosses are a step-up or step-down in the Lady Gaga age. Oh, let's not forget the corny names of the assassins that would remind you of the heroes from the Wuxia films of the 80s.

While "Naked Killer" and "Naked Weapon" would probably be remembered for awakening the painful transition of pubescent boys, Jennifer has opted to cover herself more for the approval nods of the censors, but the effects-added blood splatter still earns some disapproval for the scissors.

It should be obvious by now whether you would enjoy this movie or not for this movie is clearly tailor-made for a certain audience, and if you are, then we are not interested in joining your cult.
