Awesome to the Third Power,
This review is from: Bitch Slap - Stacked Edition / Bitch Slap - Garces en furie - Édition chargée d'extras (Bilingual) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)While admittedly Bitch Slap is not a project all viewers will enjoy, those of us tuned in to its uniquely derivative charms cannot help but admire it as the ultimate tribute to the twin glories of genre cinema and hot ladies in tight, tight clothing. Those who would dismiss it as "unoriginal" are like those who complain about the use of sampling in hip-hop and electronic music--chronically unable to appreciate how changing the context of the familiar allows us to enjoy it in a way we never did before.
By "sampling" sources as varied as Memento, Kill Bill, Sin City, The Usual Suspects, Kiss Me Deadly, Pulp Fiction and Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (to name just the most obvious among dozens), Bitch Slap celebrates their greatness while also combining to become its own special animal. In short it is a movie made by people who love movies for people who love movies.
Yes, those who come to it expecting rampant nudity will come away frustrated, but the kind of material they're looking for can be found within seconds with even the most innocent of Google searches, so their complaints strike me as rather empty. The tasteful lack of nipples is more than made up by the film's three leading ladies, who strike the perfect balance between deliberate camp and sincere emotional verisimilitude, which makes their undeniable smoking hotness mere icing on the cake.
As you can gather, I genuinely love this movie. So much so that I broke my habit of not contributing reviews to this site just because I could not allow its one other current review to stand alone. I acknowledge that mine is probably the minority view, but then pleasing the minority is what being a "cult" film is all about.
