Great eye-candy as always, Angie Everhart also gives a convincing, tough performance in "Bittersweet" as a woman with an one-track mind: she was shot, framed for armed robbery and imprisoned for 4 years, now she's out for revenge on the man responsible, her sleazy ex-boyfriend, but to get to him she'll have to shoot her way through the criminal organization he now works for. Angie looks great with a gun (or two), and sports a fit physique. Her character is not entirely sympathetic, nor was it meant to be; even though she shows a more human side in a couple of scenes, Everhart doesn't soften her. James Russo is also good as the cop with the tragic past who becomes her only ally; Eric Roberts is less impressive as the crime boss, maybe because he has played this same role a few too many times. The film also cannot escape the cliché of the bad guys who are lousy shots and can't hit the heroes even when they're standing up with no cover, but we see that all the time in more expensive action movies as well, so it's easier to overlook it in a B-movie like this. And "Bittersweet" is a well-made B-movie. **1/2 out of 4.
