Nina Strucker (Victoria Smurfit) in BULLETPROOF MONK is the head of the "Human Rights Organization" which is actually a Nazi front. Nina secretly celebrates the Nazi atrocities shown in the exhibits rather than condemning them. She and her elderly grandfather (a former SS officer) search for a mystical Tibetan talisman of great power which he failed to acquire in WWII. A final showdown with the rejuvenated Nazi against the kung-fu Monk, and Nina against a Russian girl fighter climax the story.
History:[edit | edit source]
Not much known about her past. Nina Strucker is the granddaughter of a Nazi SS officer who wants to obtain a mystical scroll guarded by a Tibetan monk. As a girl he told her stories about the monk. But she never believed him untill he showed newspapers about the miracles the monk performed. Using the healings the monk performed they kept track of the monk. She became the head of the Human Right Organization Nina and her aging grandfather attempt to find the monk who escapes each time they find him. Nina meets Jade at the HRO. As the monk escapes again together with another guy: Kar, they leave a briefcase behind from a theater. Nina and her men visit the theater and she ends strangling the owner to death as he wants to call the cops.
Her men find the Monk and after a chase by helicopter the Nazis manage to get the scroll as the chopper crashes by the Monk's powers. Nina brings the scroll to her grandfather who realizes it is a mere recipe for soup. Nina later is contacted by a rogue monk who informs them of the hideout the Monk uses. Nina and her men burst in and take everyone captive. However the Monk and Kar slip away. Nina brings the captured monks to the hideout of her grandfather. They then use a deadly machine to torture the captives for information and test it out on the rogue monk. Nina and her man track them down to the mansion of Jade, the daughter of a Russian crime lord . Nina and her men take out the guards and she manages to stun and sedate the Monk. Checking his torso she realizes he wears the scroll on his own body, as it has been tattooed on his skin.
