Banshee -- Taryn Manning (Hustle & Flow, 8 Mile) is Banshee, a sexy, streetwise punk in this stylish, high-speed action thriller from the director of Zebra Lounge. Banshee can throw a mean left hook and pull off a string of petty crimes without a hitch, but this time she's in over her head. She's stolen a vintage sports car from the wrong guy. The very wrong guy...a hip techno DJ who is also a serial killer (Christian Campbell, Malibu Shores) with a penchant for recording the screams of his victims and morphing them into his music. He always gets the girl...and Banshee is next on his list.

Pretty good female-driven action thriller, 2 November 2009
Author: gridoon2016

I didn't know much about Taryn Manning before watching "Banshee", but this film turned me into a fan. She is a perfect fit for her character here - and it's not an easy character: she has to play edgy, tough, confident, seductive, wounded, scared. It's a believable (Manning actually has real-life kickboxing background) and layered performance. Her bond with the rookie cop who's a bit in over his head (Mike Lombardi) develops in an unforced way. As for the serial killer, he's a very twisted nutcase with fairly original quirks (he likes to record the terrified screams of his victims). The film was written by a woman, directed by a woman, and starring a woman, and its pro-feminist philosophy is evident. But it also works on the more superficial "action thriller" level - there is some very good stunt driving at the start. If you're a Taryn Manning fan, you must see this; if you're not, you'll probably become one. **1/2 out of 4.
