Steph F is Hot!
20 August 2014 | by astron_2000See all my reviews

Jesse is a great action flick-Just got it at Walmart-smart sassy, lead actress Stephanie Finochio is hot--former wwe Diva, she is smokin! Also, William Forsyte, Armand Assante(I the Jury) Eric Roberts(Expendables) not bad either--kudos to Paul Vario (just Like Joe)The plot is a simple one--a cop out for revenge against a loved one's killer--it goes all the way back to Death Wish and beyond--but this is handled with style and class-- Fred Carpenter proves he's a master at action directing on a low budget-- he is the Roger Corman of NY!!
