V for vendetta
14 March 2015 | by (adelaide, australia) – See all my reviews

Here's another example of typical B grade fare which made the eighties what they were. A slightly better prison/action vehicle here, though there are some "Are you shi..in' me moments?", especially as far at that Judge (Will Hare-that insane grandfather in Silent Night Deadly Night) was concerned. The premise isn't bad, also. Big Sis, a stunt woman, purposely gets herself arrested to avenge younger, cute sister's murder at the hands of a band of merciless female prisoners, led by notorious top dog, Kay (a nasty of acting from Sandy Martin, that female officer in Extremities). That's not the catalyst though, where I really did like how it was plotted. Sadly the film, again, gives way to sleaze, but does curb it a bit, where we again are in the sleazy confines of another corrupt run prison, though the staff aren't all rotten, although this is how it was intended. Of course, this doesn't make it excusable, but this is somewhat better than those Chained Heats, what have you. We see a familiar General Hospital face as a sleazy warden who services sexually starved prisoners. Not a badly made film, although a few amateur moments shine through, in a far from flawless pic. Oh, how you'll love it, you revenge fans, out there, you'll really crave this one.
