Watched it because of Kathleen
18 November 2014 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Released in 1992, Final Impact has Kathleen Kinmont getting the starring credit even though she wasn't the film's lead character. Nevertheless it was still wonderful to see such a credit for her. Here she plays Maggie and coincidentally her Fraternity Vacation co-star Barbara Crampton would play a character by that name a few years later in The Bold and The Beautiful. It was delightful that Kathleen made her entrance here in a colourful one-piece swimsuit. Of course I prefer the bikini that she wore in Fraternity Vacation. In fact in another scene she wore a pink bikini and Barbara Crampton wore a pink bikini when they appeared together in Fraternity Vacation. Makes me wonder how Barbara would have looked in the red-white striped bikini that Kathleen wore in Fraternity Vacation. In this movie about boxing including the recruitment of a protégé, Kathleen was lovely in what she was given here including going through a certain tragedy of this movie.
