Rent it for Shannon Tweed, stay with it for Danielle Ciardi
7 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

Shannon Tweed is beginning to look her age here (she was 42 when this was made), but she is still in top physical shape, and she briefly gets to put her kickboxing lessons (probably from the two "No Contest" films) to use. Although her name is the main - er, the ONLY - reason anybody will rent "Powerplay", she is not "exposed" as often as her co-star, Danielle Ciardi, who is an extremely hot woman, with a great face and body, and a decent actress as well. On the other hand, the male actors range from wooden to horrible. The plot starts out as predictable, and then just gets stupider by the minute. The characters make so many blunders that after a while you lose count of them. (**)
