It's hard to feel for such an unlikeable lead: "I'm a novelist" she pompously pronounces to the first person to ask; she wears Ugg boots in the summer; she trespasses; "Will you be done soon?" she impatiently asks the retarded plumber, then kisses him on the mouth for fixing her toilet; she's ever so angry, but seemingly not at herself, when she spills wine on her blouse and shorts, then can't wash it out; "Get out of here: get out of here right now," she orders her assailants, as if it'll work. Later, she jumps in a dirty river after being raped, and disappears under the surface: she returns to avenge her rapists a few days later, but NOTHING about how she survived the river is revealed. The lack of anger she demonstrates while methodically killing her rapists is incongruent with the mercilessness of the sadistically sophisticated manner in which she kills them. Pretty girl with a fantastic bum, but couldn't act her way out of a wet paper bag. Not much tension, or gore. I gave it a "1" for being in focus. Watch something else.
