Senorita Justice breaks the rules -- and delivers an inspiring, edge-of-your-seat action movie!, 7 March 2006
Author: RainyCloudz from California

Honestly, who is this person writing all these negative reviews? A jealous ex-lover of gorgeous and talented Yancy Mendia? I rented "Senorita Justice" on a whim at Blockbuster because the cover looked sexy. Boy, did I make a good choice! The movie was filled with action, suspense, drama, and a good moral.

Using the exotic Miami as a backdrop, the movie starts with lawyer Anna Rios (Yancy Mendia) who seems to have it all. A good job, a Caucasian, rich boyfriend, and a comfy life. That is until her childhood friend Vanessa (Mirtha Michelle, who flows effortlessly in an emotionally challenging role) shows up and reveals Anna's brother was killed.

Anna can't believe it so she goes back home to get to the bottom of this since the cops (Eva Longoria and Edith Gonzales) are not doing anything. In the process of finding out who killed her brother, Anna discovers and appreciates her Hispanic roots.

"Senorita Justice" could've been any other action movie with things blown up from side to side. Not so, the movie balances intense action scenes with stories about love, friendship, and finding out who you are.

For those looking for Anna to kick some butt, you will not be disappointed! Reportedly, Mendia did all her own stunts and it looks great! I was on the edge of my seat when robbers tried to attack her as she was showering. You have to watch to find out what happens! She is also an expert at firing guns, much more than Angelina Jolie in "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider." The final fight scene pits Anna against an Asian woman (Grayce Wey) and it was freaking cool! Wey doesn't hold back as she rolls out the punches. Mendia is no dainty flower either, she is both athletic and beautiful. This is one of the best fight sequences I've ever seen! It looked so natural and un-choreograph like "Alias" or movies like "Mortal Kombat." The underlying message of "Senorita Justice" resonates with many of us. It is about not forgetting where you come from and who you are. I cried at the end. Anna went through so much but she never once gave up to avenge her brother's death. Anna Rios is an inspiration; no matter how big her enemies were, she didn't back down. It's a good example of mind over matter.

I must not forget to mention the cast. I don't think the movie would've been as great with a different cast. Everyone had challenging roles but played it convincingly. I believe we can all relate to at least one of these characters.

Yancy Mendia is a revelation; I'm surprised I have not seen her in other movies. Not only is she beautiful, but she can kick butt and manage to tug at your heartstrings in the next. She made Anna seductive and strong, but at the same time vulnerable and the girl you want to be friends with. The role of Anna Rios required a variety of emotions from grieving over her brother's death to finding out who she is to beating up baddies. Props to Mendia for handling it so well; she is definitely a star to look out for.

The supporting cast was also very strong. Mirtha Michelle had a challenging role of playing the no-nonsense best friend Vanessa; at the same time, she was hiding a big secret. Michelle did it so well, transitioning her character's emotions from scene to scene with ease. The standout moment is when she is grieving for her lover's loss; it just breaks your heart as the camera won't shy away from her tears. It is so real and raw. The last scene with Michelle just shocked the heck out of me! You have to watch to find out.

Seasoned actress Edith González made us dislike her character but at the same reason know why. She was playing a cop who followed the rules but knew much more than she let on. With one glance or an exhausting sigh, González did not reveal her character's intentions too early. She played every note correctly -- subtle and sneaky.

Eva Longoria was barely in this movie so I cannot say much about her. It was disappointing we didn't see much of her since she's so good in "Desperate Housewives." Maybe she wasn't that well-known or was still honing up her acting skills when they filmed "Senorita Justice" so that's why her role was so small.

Overall, "Senorita Justice" was a treasure. It kept me on the edge of my seat and brought me to tears. And it had a good message to its audience; I would definitely show it to my kids. Anna Rios is a good role model. More movies like "Senoirta Justice" should be made.

The only reason I did not give the movie 10 stars was because I felt it was too short. I wanted to find out more about Anna and what she did after. I hope there's a sequel!
