BitterSweet: Passable b-movie
27 May 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

I like Angie Everhart, in fact I'd go as far as to say I'm a fan of hers. Despite however having all the tools she had a very underwhelming career, but at least she looked fantastic doing it. The pinnacle in this guys opinion being the Tales From The Crypt movie Bordello Of Blood (1996).

Here she plays the lead (Which was quite a rarity), a woman betrayed by her boyfriend and left for dead. After a prison sentence (She was also framed) she is gunning for revenge and it turns out Eric Roberts is her ex's mafia-esque boss.

The whole thing is very cliched, you'll have seen it all before and done considerably better. It does however have its moments and isn't entirely devoid of entertainment.

Everhart's performance varies from quite good down to dire, the girl is so damn inconsistent that at times she makes Megan Fox look Oscar worthy.

Despite this Bittersweet crosses the t's and dot's the i's in the right places so is a competent enough 97 minutes.

The Good:

Angie Everhart (Fine I'm bias)

The Bad:

High mediocre for the most part

Makeover scene was astoundingly dumb

Eric Roberts hair at the end, what the actual fudge?

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

Angie Everhart could have made a brilliant action heroine

In every movie starring Eric Roberts he simply plays Eric Roberts
