Very nice little Grindhouse-style movie
18 October 2007 | by (Beverley Hills, England) – See all my reviews

I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by this little flick. Naturally I went in expecting it to be along the same lines as the classic 'girl power' flick, I Spit on Your Grave (….), and while the two share some common themes; this film is certainly different enough for it not to be considered a rip-off. Recently, Quentin Tarantino tried to recreate the seventies Grindhouse style with 'Death Proof', but director Todd Morris actually succeeded in doing that over ten years ago with this film, as if it wasn't for the fact that I know that A Gun for Jennifer was made in 1996, I definitely would have thought I was watching a seventies movie. The plot focuses on a group of man-hating (probable) lesbians who are tired of the way that men treat women and so decide to take the law into their own hands. The story really starts when they save a young woman from being mugged on the streets. They have her shoot the mugger and then allow her to join the gang. From there we follow the girls as they squabble amongst themselves and take down various male criminals in the city...

In true seventies Grindhouse style, the film has a very low quality feel about. The picture is misty and the performances are all clearly delivered by inexperienced actors. However, this really adds to the film's overall quality - it's never overly clear whether or not the film is actually meant to feel like a seventies trash flick, but it does and that's what I really liked about it. The film also does a very good job of painting men in a very unfavourable light, and this benefits it because it makes the girls' little tirade of retribution feel more worthwhile. The plot itself is fairly standard - for the first hour we basically just skip from one victim to another until eventually we find out who the real bad guy is and watch the girls go after him. The plot is thickened with some police involvement, though this isn't really capitalised upon. However, while the film could have been better; I really do think that Todd Morris has done a good job with this film. It's not a brilliant masterpiece, but it's not bad at all and exploitation fans will probably get a kick out of it.
