Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Newcomer Jason Yee proves plenty adept at chopsocky, but his chops are nonexistent on the thesping side."
‑ Rob Nelson, Variety
"There's a lot to like about the action film "The Girl From the Naked Eye," especially some crisp martial arts fight sequences and the subtle sense of humor that surfaces now and then."
‑ Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
"It's a pretty good little noir with excellent fighting and the usual story. I liked the tone, I liked the photography, and I liked the characters. The pace is a little maddening, but the film is ultimately efficient."
‑ Witney Seibold, CraveOnline
"A compelling chopsocky made in America, featuring a homegrown matinee idol who might very well blossom into the next Bruce Lee."
‑ Kam Williams,
"The Girl from the Naked Eye has heart, which is more than can be said of some other recent genre throwbacks, but it ultimately makes barely a splash."
‑ Rob Humanick, Slant Magazine
"In its moments of sometimes comically violent antagonism, the movie shows some flashes of genre pizazz."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"Could easily be relabeled Sin City Lite."
‑ Alison Willmore, AV Club
"A pulpy, low-budget slice of film noir cross-pollinated with a martial arts flick, this Girl wins no awards for great originality but nonetheless serves as a stylish and engaging vehicle for the surly charms of Jason Yee."
‑ Brent Simon, Shared Darkness
"The best thing to come from the film is a desire to see what Ren and friends do next... hopefully with an even bigger budget."
‑ Rob Hunter, Film School Rejects
"An engaging blend of martial arts and film noir."
‑ Mark Adams, Screen International
"At times off-putting, at other times outright campy, "The Girl From the Naked Eye" does offer a measured amount of queasy fun."
‑ Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post
"It isn't a great movie, but it looks terrific and makes me look forward to the next film by its director, David Ren."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"It might be difficult to stifle laughter while watching this stylish but overwrought noir thriller."
‑ Todd Jorgenson,
"I can't say that I was ever really bored by it."
‑ Peter Sobczynski,
