Pretty much defines the term "irredeemable trash"
27 February 2001 | by Eegah GuySee all my reviews

A gang of rape victims take kung fu lessons and start wearing masks with leather jackets to take on those who prey on others. They steal from the rich (including a lesbian seductress and her rapist doctor husband) and give to the inner-city poor. It's all very cheap, crude and tasteless but the background music during the lengthy sex scenes should be of interest to fans of lounge/psych music.
