A kick-ass professional car thief, Sage, (Taryn Manning), steals a classic '66 Charger on a challenge. It turns out the car belongs to a serial killer (is there another kind?), who proceeds to slice and dice her friends because he wants his car back, and wants Sage dead. Sage also deals with treacherous fellow criminals, and a cop who wants her in jail, or wants into her pants (he hasn't decided yet). Written by fgunther, Brooklyn, NY

stumbles a bit
9 April 2017 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Sage Rion (Taryn Manning) is a tough professional car thief known as the Banshee to the police. She steals a car but she loses her ID. The car's owner wants it back and he turns out to be a serial killer. She steals the car from her fence and returns it. She even rescues pursuing police detective Fitz in the process. However, her boyfriend's dismembered body is found in her apartment and the cops try to arrest her. She stays with her friend Brenna who is later kidnapped by the killer.

Taryn Manning is plenty capable but the movie isn't willing. She has a tough sassy charisma which drives the movie. There is some early car actions that are almost good. It seems to have potential but the story stumbles. It's fun to have a scantily clad Taryn supergluing her wounds. Mostly, the movie loses its action thrills.
