First, I love Julie Strain but there comes a time to hang up the thong, and give the next breast enhanced Amazon a break to star in some grade Z action flick. Jule was around 40 when this film was released. Still my favorite 6' plus B queen but even with six pounds of make-up on her face - well, I'll be kind. Also, the cinematographer really shot her in an unflattering way. She seems enormous and awkward, rather than sexy and powerful.
The film itself is just terrible, borderline unwatchable. Make sure the remote is nearby for that 4X ff button. My problem with this type of film is, why not just give the audience what they want? Would it really be that hard to shoot and action flick with Julie Strain as she is portrayed on the cover art of the DVD? (...) Why do these films ->always<- have to be so boring, bad, unimaginative, and uninspired?
Exploitation films used to be fun - many were down right good! And they were shot with lower budgets and without the technology available to filmmakers today. They also were more constrained in terms of nudity and explicitness. There are also many more markets for exploitation films - foreign, DVD, etc. to make back their investment. I don't get it.
Where are the TALENTED exploitation filmmakers of this generation? (...)
