I'll begin with a couple of positives for this film, and there aren't many. Firstly it is shot quite nicely its a nice film to watch and the soundtrack and editing is also pretty well done. That's it though.
At the beginning we see Jane (played by Sarah Butler) sparring with her partner in her house, doing a few punches and knees to a pad he is holding. I mention this because later in the film this is very important when dealing with assassins.
The entire first half of the film is set in Jane's office where she sits at a computer screen (touch screen may I add to make it look even cooler) pretty much the entire time where she discovers some fraudulent activity has taken place within the company she works for. Alarmed by this she spends even more time at her computer to make sure what she has discovered checks out.
She then informs her co-worker Ronald (played by Ian Gomez) about this discovery, who informs her they should take it higher to report it. However, in true plot twisting style, Ronald is in on this whole shenanigans and instead of reporting it, he calls in "the muscle", namely FRANK (D.B. Sweeney) to sort out this mess and shut her up.
Now FRANK being an assassin, is having an off day, not only does he let a woman beat him up so she can escape, he also misses her from about 10 yards with a gun containing seemingly infinite ammunition. Jane then gets in the elevator where she stays for the entirety of the second half of the film. The lift is disabled because Ronald presses one wrong button so Jane is trapped in there. Things turn worse for FRANK as he realises he cant get to her, so he kills the security guard and smashes Ronald's head in with a bar because he's being annoying. After another session of shooting at Jane in the elevator with another 15 bullets, FRANK misses with 14 of them, yes that's right, he still cant hit Jane even putting his gun in the elevator where she runs from side to side. He finally manages to hit her with one bullet, however this doesn't kill Jane, it merely grazes her and at the end of the film gives her magical powers. FRANK is now in serious trouble because his gun which contains about 50 rounds of ammo has finally ran out.
He realises he needs to call in the elevator expert to open the lift and get Jane out. The elevator guy arrives, FRANK lies to him saying Jane is saying crazy things because being locked in the elevator has made her go mad. The elevator guys believes FRANK and starts to get her out, he then sees an empty bullet shell on the top of the elevator and realises FRANK really is a naughty man. He tries to escape but FRANK having that assassin intuition realises he's on to him, FRANK then beats him to the ground and pulls out a knife, at this point you think its game over for the elevator guy but for some reason FRANK decides to stick the knife into the top of elevator guys shoulder that merely grazes him. Another fail for FRANK.
Finally the movie comes to that classic end battle between good and evil. Jane v FRANK on top of the elevator, where else. This is where the first scene I mentioned becomes really important. Frank the Assassin v Jane the slim beautiful office worker. No content right? right? WRONG.
In a amazing turn of events, Jane suddenly becomes MMA's Ronda Rousey, pummelling FRANK with punches, kicks, knees, at one point she even climbs the elevator pulley and does a spinning roundhouse to finally knock him off the top of the lift to fall to his imminent death. It is tense, you really do not know who will win the fight, but eventually after gasping for air it is Jane MMA champion who comes out on top.
A fitting end to a truly appalling movie.
Malcolm McDowell plays Thaddeus Gault, the owner of the company and the man behind the whole fraud thing and there's a half hearted sub plot going on between Jane's partner and her co-worker over a meal in a restaurant.
