"She's tougher than she looks"!
25 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

Linda Kozlowski is pretty much the whole show here. As a female P.I., she strikes a believable balance between toughness and vulnerability: she is not superhuman but she is fearless (even reckless), she is not an expert fighter but she can and will fight anyone when the need arises. It is quite refreshing to see a woman portrayed like this in the movies, and Linda's performance is excellent (even if it's easy to spot the 2 or 3 scenes where she was stunt-doubled). As for "Backstreet Justice" as a whole, apart from a fairly explicit - and sensual - sex scene, it plays more or less like a TV-movie-of-the-week, and just isn't very interesting. I give it a 6 out of 10, but if the exact same movie had been made with a male lead, I'd probably give it a 3.
