A film that instead of having men pointing guns around and calling names, the women step in and have their fun.
23 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The second Blinky Productions feature film that is a wild and mind grinding film. Within the movie, the main characters are a group of five women that have combined their talents and use methods from films (bank robbery movies) to rob banks throughout New Jersey, however, after a cop finds them their trust between each other fades leading into a Mexican Stand-Off. From the start of the film you are introduce to the gang's leader Fox (Mandy Evans) who is going to her hot-shot team member who has gone to far in Fox's plan. Fox is a character who has a goal and has no interest in diverging from the plan, her methods are simple but with any sign of disinterest or advance from the plan, she will count as a betrayal and have her teammate killed. Even though she may seem harsh, it isn't a pleasure of hers like the Joker, she has a bond with her friends/ team and when its time for a ex-player, she will kill the person with a heartbreak and tear. When it comes to the middle of the film when the cop is caught and the stand off begins, you are then stuck right in the middle of the questioning of who might have done it. The positive is that the story gives the audience enough evidence to put yourself in the chair of who might have done it. Was it the Rookie? The van driver, where the tracer was found? Or was it the long time founding member of the Executives? For a good half-hour this is played off. Now to many this can be too long and some will be saying, "Come on tell us already," but stories need this type of story telling and then when it is revealed you are instantly in a state of, "wow." The problem is that once the stand-off is coming to a close and the suspects are winding down, the person is beginning to be presented more obvious and the end plan is... Okay.

In my personal opinion, the film is a good film if you are into long played out film. I like to look over every questionable moment and think to myself who might have done it. I began to look over this film and saw the character development unrole and thought of the words from the film's director, Chris R. Notarile - "... Write male characters and have women read the roles." This is a though I have thought of sense then (from 2012), and whenever I see a movie from then where the female characters are shown, they are complete stereotypical women with their breast out and being the background pretty face, I am thrown off the movie's story and think to myself, "why?". Now in this instance when the females are lead characters, they are treated properly. They aren't ladies with the wide-open eyes to death and screaming at the top of their lungs, they are power women that have their goals and aren't afraid to kill to live. They are complete opposites from Lara Croft in Tomb Raider (2013), where she is innocent turned bad-ass, they are bad- ass from the start to finish and this is a good factor... even though I like Lara too.
