Thoughtful Action Comedy
23 June 2003 | by See all my reviews

This well written short is extremely entertaining. A humorous campy sendoff of bad girl stereotypes and action movies/tv had me laughing. The assistance of Power Up gave this indie unexpected top notch production values. Find a chance to see this if you can. It appears the director has sold it and a hollywood version based on the idea will be out. Take the time to see this original idea from an up and coming director.
