Don’t even bother with this B-level garbage. It’s an incomprehensible mess about a futuristic world where people live in a walled city and, thanks to advances in genetic research, are able to steal each other’s DNA. , tragically classy and well above this material, plays an assassin who seeks out “DNA Hackers” and kills them for money, a job which comes in handy when her brother’s latest tangle with his gambling addiction gets him into trouble with bad guys. The only curiosity here is seeing former screen legend  inexplicably lending her talents as the original laboratory researcher who invented this technology (and then turns into a worm-like monster…it makes a career choice like Mommie Dearest seem like the smartest thing she ever did by comparison).  Sadly, the film isn’t campy enough to be fun, it’s just drudgery weighed down by bad dialogue, undetectable direction and cheesy visual effects.
