CIA: Code Name Alexa is well made and merciless. The body count is astonishing as amazonian Alexa (Kinmont) — a living, breathing weapon whom a detective (O.J. Simpson) refers to as the ”Rambo bitch” — stops a psycho (Alex Cord) from taking control of the world. As in all kickboxing epics nowadays, there’s a gladiatorial match, this one unequaled for exotic violence. In a feminist switch, CIA man Lamas (the real-life Mr. Kinmont) is around for romantic interest, and the resulting sentimentality, surrounded by so much mayhem, is quite stupefying. C+
