Katie gets back at the character Ivan by crushing his testicles with a vice, completely destroying them while he was totally conscious and causing him to slump back in pain and spit up blood. In such excruciating agony and with that amount of physical damage to his body, there's no way he should have been able to sit up lightning fast just a minute or so later and nearly strangle her to death.

I did get a decent amount of gratification from Katie's brutal revenge.
'I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE 2': Four Stars (Out of Five)
Sequel to the 2010 remake of the 1978 cult classic 'DAY OF THE WOMAN' (which was later retitled 'I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE', to capitalize on it's notoriety). All three films are torture/revenge movies about a young woman who is brutally raped and left for dead (by four men) and then she hunts them down, one by one, and gets her gruesome revenge. This film is less a sequel (as it's only similar to the 2010 film in title and premise) and more just another remake of the original film (it's even credited as being based on 'DAY OF THE WOMAN' in the film's end credits). It was written by Neil Elman and Thomas Fenton (who also co-wrote the torture porn sequel 'SAW IV') and once again directed by Steven R. Monroe (like the 2010 film). This sequel is about as well made and effective (at the genre it's trying to represent) as it's two predecessors. Definitely not an enjoyable film going experience (in any way) but it delivers the gore, disturbing terror and grindhouse style revenge thrills that viewers of these types of movies expect.
The story revolves around an aspiring model named Katie (Jemma Dallender, who gives an amazing performance) working as a waitress in New York. She calls the number for an ad, which promises free professional photos, and meets three brothers (Yavor Baharov, Joe Absolom and Aleksandar Aleksiev) in the studio they shoot out of. After they try to talk her into doing some photos naked she leaves and goes home to her apartment. One of the brothers, Georgy (Baharov), shows up at her apartment; first to offer her free pictures and then later taking photos of her, in her bedroom, while she's sleeping. He proceeds to tie her up and rape her and then calls his brothers for help cleaning up the crime. The three brothers drug Katie and ship her to their home country of Bulgaria where they proceed to rape and torture her. A business associate of theirs, named Valko (Peter Silverleaf), joins them in Bulgaria. Of course you know what happens next.
The original 1978 film is one of the most controversial films of all time and has been criticized both for exploiting rape and man hating (due to the evil characterisations of it's male characters and the excessive torture scenes of them, some involving their genitalia). Roger Ebert notoriously called it a "vile bag or garbage" and gave it (and it's original remake) a zero star rating. The 2010 remake received the same kind of harsh criticism (and there were reports of several men walking out on screenings of that film in theaters) but both films also have received an equal amount of praise, with some calling them 'pro women' feminism and cathartic. I haven't read the reviews on this film yet but I imagine it would get the same kind of reaction. I basically felt the same things about it as I did the first two films; I felt miserable the first half of the movie but did get a decent amount of gratification from Katie's brutal revenge in the second (and the death scenes are once again extremely creative and grotesquely imaginative). Once again I don't think this movie (like the others) is telling anyone how to feel about Katie's actions (whether they're right or wrong) but it does make a compelling and disturbingly entertaining flick. Not a great film but a more than decent example of the 'torture porn' genre (just like it's two predecessors).
