A woman (Scarlett Johansson) is kidnapped and forced to work as a drug mule for the mob in Taipei. She's knocked out and a bag of a new, incredibly powerful drug is implanted in her abdomen. Before she's put on a flight, she's held in a dungeon, where one of her captors beats her and the bag of drugs tears open inside her.

As the drug works through her blood stream, she gains superhuman powers, including the ability to move objects using her mind, choosing not to feel pain and a highly advanced talent to absorb information. She turns the tables on her captors, transforming into a merciless warrior.

  • 5 stars "I thought it was great. Very well done. The ending a tad wishy washy but it worked. Well done to all who participated in bringing this to film for us to enjoy."
  • 5 stars "Great movie! Kinda like the movie "Limitless" (guy takes a pill to be smart), but this is a whole lot better. Makes you think really how many brain cells we really use and our potential. Remember humans only 10% and dolphins 20% so really they should be teaching us! Didn't like the ending as much as I hoped though, but maybe there will be a follow up?!?"
  • 5 stars "I thought it was a great movie, It provides one with a lot of action and a different perspective on the presently known mind/consciousness"
