Storyline

When two troublemaking female prisoners (one a revolutionary, the other a former harem-girl) can't seem to get along, they are chained together and extradited for safekeeping. The women, still chained together, stumble, stab, and cat-fight their way across the wilderness, igniting a bloody shootout between gangsters and a group of revolutionaries.

Whoa mama
5 November 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Pam Grier and Margaret Markov are the Black Mama and White Mama respectively, Two escapees from a womens' prison, in this exploitation flick. Actually pretty good in a B-movie way. It's not Jonathan Demme's best writing credit ( that would be Caged Heat), and not Pam Grier's best movie (or 5th best movie... or 10th best movie.. or even.. well you get the gist), but it IS Margaret Markov's best film AND it does have Sid Haig (who's good in anything,pretty much the ONLY actor i liked in that "House of 1,000 Corpses" travesty)

My Rating: B-

Eye Candy: shower scene, Pam & Margaret topless in the "hot box", Various hookers, & a 3-way

Where i saw it: TMC Extra
