Looks alright, but the whole premise is very offensive to transgenders. Duh.
Dr. Rachel Kay (Sigourney Weaver) is a brilliant but unhinged cosmetic surgeon. A lowlife killer named Frank Kitchen killed her brother, so she took her ultimate revenge. She captured him and conducted full gender-reassignment surgery. Now Frank (Michelle Rodriguez) is forced to face the world as a woman. Confused, pissed off, and as macho as ever, she’s out for her own vengeance.
