Trivia

The Vinegar Syndrome blu-ray sparked controversy when it was noticed that changes were made to the nude scenes compared to the DVD version released by Scorpion. Vinegar Syndrome maintains that their version omitting nudity is the correct version, as the print would need to be digitally re-framed for those specific shots. Many fans are not convinced this meets with the filmmakers intent for those scenes. See more »

Entertaining fight-grrrrl trash
20 April 2004 | by EyeAskanceSee all my reviews

Cheapshot little actioner is a swell ride for fans of films about chicks who kick ass. A winsome girlie has a confrontation with a couple of small-time car thieves...she beats the crap out of them, bruising their little egos. They enlist the aid of their scar-faced gang leader in a nasty vengeance plot, but this little lady has more mean-streets machismo than they bargained for! Before long, she's on a karate-chopping revenge rampage of her own. This flick is admittedly pretty small beans, but there's enough sleazy action and jiggly feminine exposures to keep most trash film lovers pleasantly amused.

Production quality...pretty low. Performances...kinda stale. Just overlook the obvious flaws here, and you may find yourself having some mindless fun with ALLEY CAT.

5/10
