    ★★★½

    Hong Kong Cat 3 film that takes bits of Terminator and Robocop and welds them to some martial arts sequences and a ton of nudity. Take it at all seriously, and it's pretty offensive, but I don't know how you could manage that. Billy Chow is suitably overplaying as the bad guy, and while
    it's not likely Amy Yip or Chikako Aoyama were cast primarily for their fighting or acting skills, they both do fine in those departments, as far as the film demands. Does what it says on the tin.

    Hails plays a young English woman living by the sea in France with her baby daughter, her French husband away on business. One day a backpacker…

    Ginger (Elle Fanning) and Rosa (Alice Englert) are two girls of sixteen, born on the same day in 1945 and best friends all their lives. In 1962, however, they begin to drift apart as Rosa becomes interested in boys, while Ginger’s…
