Mylene finds herself attracted to Chris and after completing her mission and returning to headquarters she is unable to keep him out of her mind. "Recover Dr. Klein and see to her protection!" is the newest mission assigned to Mylene from the 00 agency. Abducted by the Eastern Block, Dr. Klein was in charge of the Faust Project and the technology that made Mylene into a cyborg. During the briefing for the mission she puzzles over a name that sparks memories buried within her cyborg mind. "Recover Dr. Klein and see to her protection!" is the newest mission assigned to Mylene from the 00 ... Written by Nikkatsu Corporation

Entertaining action-drama
9 November 2016 | by grantssSee all my reviews

It is some time in the future and a new world order has emerged, pitting the Western Block against the Eastern Block. J-Country is the border between the two powers. Mylene Hoffman is an undercover agent for the Western Block. She is also a cyborg, 009-1. She is good at her job, eliminating many of the West's enemies. However, while under her protection, her creator, Dr Klein, is kidnapped. Her employer blames 009-1 and suspends her. She doesn't take this well...

Reasonably entertaining sci fi action-drama. Pretty basic storyline, though with enough twists and turns to keep you interested.

Main focus, of course, is on the action scenes, and they come thick and fast. I'm generally not into action movies - they tend to be very formulaic and their action scenes unoriginal - but this seemed different and kept me interested.

One reason my concentration was maintained was due to Mayuko Iwasa starring as 009-1. She is great on the eyes and definitely makes the movie more watchable than it otherwise would have been.
