Great action! Great film-making!
7 August 2005 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

As the female version of Dirty Harry and one of the most vicious comic book adaptations Big Zapper is a cult favorite that lives on! After Sin City it has become even more acceptable and one can see that it was just ahead of it's time!

It's an unbelievable mixture of surreal sex scenes and nasty slap stick violence and the cynical attitude of the main character is absolutely unbelievable! Plus the way the goofs are saved by the voice over like "I had time just to change my clothes" when Zapper's outfit is changed in the middle the scene!

Absolutely great work!
