Gotta love a woman who gets off on her job...
10 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

I found it to be a well done film for being low budget. The title struck me as a pun after I had seen it and I choose to believe it was intentional. The body count is high, and it has a moral (of a sort). Maria, the Italian hit-woman, is not too hard on the eyes either.

The bad guy is a real bad guy and deserves to die, the good guy is a crooked cop, and the hit-woman... just happened to be the one to get tagged with the job.

Warning: Maria gets nude. It is not a long scene, but her lovely body writhing in the bed in the aftermath of a gun battle is memorable. I haven't forgotten it yet...

I would buy this movie (if I could find it on DVD, I'd even take VHS if I had to. It is less about action, and more about enforced inaction cause by other people failing to follow a "reasonable timetable".
