an unusual and quite excellent movie
30 December 2003 | by (Maine) – See all my reviews



I must disagree with the previous reviewer, who had nothing good to say aboout this movie. The Girl Hunters is I agree unusual--but unusual in a good sense. The acting is excellent. The characters sound as one would imagine real DAs and real private eyes to sound. They don't sound like Robert Di Niro--but that is refreshing.

And the musical score is actually exceptionally lyrical and moving.

In some ways I like this movie even better than Kiss Me Deadly.

Each one gets an A- in my book.
