Female First Blood, grade Z style
19 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I faintly recall at least one review for this film here on IMDb, but it's since disappeared, so I'll post my two cents for anybody who may stumble upon this obscurity.

War Cat is Tina Davenport, the daughter of a lean, mean, and unfortunately, deceased Green Beret. She is writing a book or something on her late father, and as all writers do (at least in the movies) she goes to a remote cabin in the mountains to work. Actually it's not as remote as the video box summary describes, it sits in a small town where she goes jogging everyday in shorts and tank top, drawing the attention of a man-brute who happens to belong to a depraved survivalist group. Mr. man-brute kidnaps Ms. Davenport and takes her to camp. The leader of the group is hardcore survivalist material and none too happy about womenfolk being dragged into camp as it takes away from time better spent cleaning and oiling guns, sharpening knives, burying caches of food, and whatever else survivalist do when preparing for the apocalypse. So it's execution time for the poor girl (after being violated by the entire camp no less, thankfully this happens off-screen), rather harsh punishment for being kidnapped but if you want logic your not likely to find it in a film called War Cat. At any rate, she's nothing if not quick thinking and challenges the group's survivalist skills by offering herself as human prey. She soon proves to be quite a survivalist herself.

Well, I tend to watch a lot of grade B action films, and War Cat is certainly below B quality in terms of production value due to, not a low budget, but a very meager budget. The acting ranges from fair to poor. The tone of the film is a little strange in that there is not too much in the way of nudity or blood, and like many B films War Cat is absurd and unintentionally funny so the cheese factor is there, but there are violent moments, in particular the reaction at one point by one of the female actors is a little unsettling as she is most convincing at coming unhinged. Or perhaps it simply stands out because of the silly nature of the rest of the film.

The average film viewer may want to avoid War Cat, but with that said I will admit to enjoying the film and would recommend War Cat to that small audience who enjoys campy films that entertain with their pure silliness, though don't know if even they should pay E-Bay prices for the (currently) out of print VHS.
