very interesting movie
6 January 2007 | by sundaebrunchSee all my reviews

Very interesting movie. Pam is very hot looking as always. I think she was the Black Pamela Anderson of her time, only that her body is all natural and smoking hot!! Very surprised to see one of the co-stars in the movie was Alan Arbus of MASH fame. What a totally different direction for him playing a really nasty character compared to his really soft but firm part he played as Dr. Sydney Friedman in Mash. Also was very surprised that Turner Classics showed that movie including the nudity and graphic language on cable television. Any way, I enjoyed this movie and recommend this film if you want to see some great action and one great looking woman with a pretty great plot, great music sound track and one fantastic looking female lead character.
