truly evil woman returns to seek revenge
2 July 2003 | by repetezSee all my reviews

I wouldn't want to cross that woman in a dark alley!! Loved it. Of course when Quinn's own wife appears in a new dress that she cant pay for until he is killed could be the best moment of the movie. Of course ..the entire movie is over-the-top...but thats what makes it hysterically fun to watch.
