The wonderful film about revenge and what goes on in an all-female prison.
7 March 1999 | by (Newport Beach, California) – See all my reviews

You must see this film if you are tired of all the boring, trite films coming out currently where all the entertainment value comes from the hi-tech special effects. Vendetta is a story of a stunt woman that purposely commits a crime to revenge her sister who was murdered in prison by the drug dealing lesbian whom everyone fears, even the guards.

The film rates a 10 in every aspect. It has great acting, and all the characters are incredibly scary. Believe me, you will not want to go to a women's prison after you see that drug-dealing lesbian. You won't believe how she treats the other prisoners. The fighting scenes are particularly my favorite. They are very action-packed and believable. The main character, Laurie Collins, does not use ladders or sticks or whatever objects is in the room like Jackie Chan would. She uses just her fists and feet, and very successfully. The best fighting scene really is when the Prince copy-cat comes to the prison and performs and then all the female prisoners start a riot. That scene is enough just for me to see it again and again!

So, if you are looking for an original story and would like to see what it is like in a female prison, watch this movie. Even you men won't be able to sleep very well that night!
