"Magnificent Mimi"'s acting is not so bad for a former pro-wrestler, but I still think it would've been a better idea for her to try more escapist fare if she wanted to break into the movie industry. The domestic abuse angle is distasteful when it is used not by a serious dramatic picture but by a cheap B-movie programmer such as this. And since Mimi made her living as a wrestler and not as a martial artist, it's not surprising that the fight scenes (which are few and far between anyway) that work best are those that are wrestling-orientated. Overall, "Personal Vendetta" is a rather dreary and predictable movie, but it does have its high spots, the highest of which is probably Mimi fighting in her lingerie. (*1/2)
