unforgettable scenes
19 January 2010 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

yes this film was a typical b rated movie that I watched when I was nearly 11.It was bad but there was something which I could not forget and keep myself away and after years I still remember this film.Especially the love scene between Jillian and her boyfriend whom she later killed very brutally,at the last scene... I was child then and was affected too much of the violence.... I later learned she is not a fighter but was practicing sometimes anyway she was pretty good and fighting was OK for her... As I read the other peoples comments I found many similarities about my feelings and theirs.. WATCH THIS FILM....
