At best, an action movie with a ridiculous title, this Matrix ripoff is as bad as movies can possibly get.
Antonio Banderas & Lucy Liu play the former government agents of the title, but they don't actually fight each other, instead they unite to fight a common enemy who has acquired robotic assassination tools. It's the same ridiculously clichéd nonsense we've seen dozens of times before, but with the movie title and marketing materials prompting at something a little different, this is nothing but a bait & switch con.
Someone in Hollywood seemed to think this was a good enough idea to put into production, but it wasn't, especially with a director named 'Kaos' behind the wheel.
