Very Entertaining To Me
11 January 2020 | by tonymarks-22062See all my reviews

While I agree that some of the acting was sub-par, it was not embarrassingly so. Tarantino-influenced or not (who cares? not me), I like revenge-by-the-underdog movies, and this was especially good with women getting revenge against a bunch of guys who didn't know who they were dealing with.

Good movie. More please.
