In homage to the action films of the early 1980s, the beautiful Cherry is an exotic dancer who is raped and attacked by a group of sleazy men in the club where she works. The men escape justice and she vows revenge and kills them off one by one. Things start to spiral out of control when a mysterious hit man named Bull is hired to put an end to Cherry's bloody tirade. She soon realizes that there is more at stake than she ever imagined.

While they are hunting the rapists a hired killer(Allen Hackley), who looks like they got a Samuel L. Jackson clone, is after them.
One of the first things you notice is that Julin Jean's chest is camera shy. Only extras are topless. On the plus side Julin is able to project that dumb stripper/ho mentality, perhaps a little too well. Unfortunately the script, dialouge, and direction couldn't do her justice. For instance, a man gets stabbed in the stomach and is dead in 3 seconds. The suicide was poorly developed and completely unbelievable. Even Cherry herself was extremely chipper the day after she was gang raped. They made unbelievable characters and played them in stiff roles.
Parental Guide: F-bomb, rape (not too graphic) stripper nudity.

But I'll tell you, I have it bad for Julin (aka Julin Jean). I loved her in Sweatshop & The Final, even though she only had bit parts. And yes, her side career as a lingerie model does provide lots of intriguing imagery. So I knew that I was sort of "letting the little head do the thinking" when I decided to buy the movie Cherry Bomb.
Really all I knew about the movie was that Julin was in it. There was a cute girl in red underwear on the thumbnail, but I couldn't tell if it was my lovely J-girl or not.
But it was. Julin is in center stage in this one. As a stripper who gets gang raped and then goes on a brutal revenge spree, discovering that she has a special genius for retribution.
And you know what? Julin was awesome! She has the chops. Not just the chops for the by-the-books cheesy stripper revenge Grindhouse exploitation flick that this film looks like at the outset, but the chops for the really strong, gritty dramatic moments that are artfully woven in.
Among other things this is the best stripper movie I've ever seen--not saying much because there aren't many (horror movies tend to be extreme, and if you're just looking for an easy victim why not write in a prostitute rather than a stripper? It's a more extreme choice...) and the ones there are tend to be way too goofy (eg., Strippers vs Zombies. Ugh). Most poignantly, you get a sense of the general scorn toward strippers that really exists out there...I think there are a lot of people out there who do believe that No Means No is a rule that stops when it comes to any sort of sex industry. If you're doing that sort of sub-legal, taboo job, you really are "asking for it."
When in truth my experience is that strippers are no more messed up than any of the rest of us, and tend to possess keys to happiness in life that few others do...and that's my RfEAL LIFE OPINION.
It gets broken after being a victim to sexual crimes Cherry goes off the deep end and begins a rampage that would make Jon Rambo call the cops. This is not a T & A flick although you may get a glimsp here and there. This is revenege and Cherry is a cold one.
