A terrible film, but one that compels the viewer to finish watching it with its hypnotic terrible-ness.

Fun things to watch for: the scene where the heroine is sparring with the smart-aleck who keeps knocking her down. She gets hit....pause...her head snaps back. Badly timed! The scene where the "champ" dances to "Don't Mess With Me," a stupid song obviously written and recorded for this film. The scene where dad talks to the armed punks in the alley.
