[Yes this is a straight to DVD action/thriller, Stiletto REVENGE NEVER LOOKED SO GOOD].
But unlike the endless run of the mill garbage these sorts of films usually amount too. This is a brilliant film. It's a ferocious tale of one woman's vengeance on a ruthless criminal organization (I can't give away why she is undertaking such a task because that is revealed late in the film) Stana Katic is outstanding as the films protagonist. She pulls off the sexy femme fatale character with ease. She even manages to look genuine in her action scenes. Talking of which, at times I had to remember I was not watching a gore flick.
Because the fight and killing scenes are extremely brutal and graphic.
What also makes this film above average is a truly outstanding cast. William Forsythe, James Russo, Tom Sizemore, Kelly Hu and 80's legend Tom Berenger all put in good turns. But the real stand-out is Michel Beihn as the sadistic Lee. He gets some of the best scenes. Particularly when he unleashes a vicious beating on Stana Katic. It is truly a shocking scene. Don't be put off by cheesy 80's style trailer that promotes this film.
This is enjoyable from start to finish.
