A better movie than the title might suggest.
27 September 2000 | by (Wellington, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This movie concentrates on one character (Bella) who decides to stop being a victim and go on the offensive. She takes out all the right people and all in a surreal fashion. I thought this was going to be a low-budget cheap-shot movie but was pleasantly surprised.
