Minty: The Assassin -- Minty: The Assassin belongs to the fantasy/martial arts/superhero/sci-fi genres. There’s something for everyone... especially fanboys.

This fantastic tale revolves around MINTY, a youthful, raven haired, punk rock, feminist, female super heroine, that gets her super powers from eating chocolate (which is a good source of antioxidants).

One day Minty's agent, BIG BOSS, an older and honorable gentlemen, is taken hostage by DOCTOR BRAIN BENDER, the evil neuroscientist.

Minty then fights her way up various perverse floors of Doctor Brain Bender’s paranormal building to rescue Big Boss. Several unusual villains stand in her way: CAPTAIN CAPABILITY, a freak of nature; SENSATIONAL NINJA, an effeminate assassin; RAT MONSTER, a depressed mutant; BRUCE ZEE, a psycho martial artist; MOLLY LEVIATHAN, a sensual super vixen; ZEN COWBOY, a blindfolded gunslinger; and DOUBLE DELICIOUS, an intellectual lesbian vampire.

Throughout this wild odyssey, Minty educates her adversaries on the fascinating world of natural science and then uses her beauty, her brains, and pure brutality to demonstrate the biological theory of the survival of the fittest.

Minty: The Assassin is an artsy indie film that honors the wonderful B-movies that pushed the boundaries of American cinema. It pays homage to the underrated and respects the soul of what makes B-movies entertaining; instead of being restricted by a convoluted storyline, Minty: The Assassin focuses on characters -- outrageous personalities that say and do some really unconventional things. You'll see a mutant rambling on about Carl Sagan's view on the cosmic evolution of our universe and lesbians having foot-sex in a restaurant as they discuss Charles Darwin's scientific theory on emotion. It's a nerdcore cult film featuring arthouse action scenes that will pump you up with real ultimate power and make you ponder the meaning of life.

A Modern Masterpiece, 10 May 2013
Author: Daniel Towers from United Kingdom

Has a movie ever moved you to tears? It's only happened to me on two occasions. The first was during Pokemon: The First Movie during the scene in which Ash is turned to stone. The second time I cried tears of joy at the artistic magnificence of this movie. Never have I seen a movie so full of drama, action and heroism, nor have I seen a movie pull off these traits so well. If you plan on only watching one movie in your lifetime then forget Shawshank Redemption, forget Green Mile, forget the Godfather and forget any other movie that springs to mind. THIS is the movie everyone should see before they die! Everyone involved in its production deserves a knighthood!
