JESSE is Smokin' HOT!!!
15 July 2011 | by firstdreamhomeSee all my reviews

This film is a must see!!! Jesse is truly a roller coaster ride and gives a whole new meaning to GIRL POWER, WOW! Stephanie Finachio went from lady wrestler, "TRINITY" to Hollywood stunt woman, to leading lady. She was born to play this part! If you like action and a strong female character, go see this film! Supported by an All Star cast, William Forsythe, Armand Assante, Eric Roberts, and Michael Wright, this little Indy film ROCKS! Fred Carpenter's Direction was spot on!! He made this look like a big budget film, truly hard to believe this only had a 150K budget. Hats off to the writing too, lot's of twists and turns in the story, I was taken by surprised a few times. Good Stuff!
