2014 | 15 | 86 min­utes | £ 19.99 ( Blu‑ray)/ £ 15.99 ( DVD) In this live- ac­tion take on a 1998 an­ime, an or­phaned school­girl who was made into a sex slave slaugh­ters her way through a pros­ti­tu­tion ring to get to the Mr Big re­spon­si­ble for her par­ents’ deaths. Set in a post- fi­nan­cial col­lapse fu­ture, it’s toned down com­pared to the orig­i­nal, but still pretty vi­o­lent. The di­rec­tor’s over- use of the smoke ma­chine is an­noy­ing, and the whole teenage as­sas­sin thing feels pretty old- hat after Kick- Ass and Hanna.
