This review is from: Nude Nuns With Big Guns [DVD] (DVD)This was a pure grindhouse delight. The title isn't misleading. The image on the cover frames the theme of the last act of the film, but don't worry, the nun, Sister Sarah, kills with those big guns in the traditional black and white habit. The cast throughout gives convincing performances, and the lead actress Asun Ortega in out of clothing is credible as the revenge-driven main character. The director Joseph Guzman offers some very stylish imagery, and competently crafts a visual narrative when not attempting a flourish. What's also lovely is that it's exploitation that says something. It casts the Church in a mean light, and treatment is over the top, but given the Church's past scandals this is really not so far-fetched, mind you they're portrayed as less deviant and more criminally greedy. There is however a reality based hypocrisy spotlighted, the Church's stance on homosexuality gets a good thrashing. Fair warning, the criminals portrayed in this film are astoundingly seedy, and this movie does include several brutal rapes that may bother the viewer--of course that was the intent. However, the rapists do get their just rewards--namely bullets with their names on it, and the leader enjoys something special that would make most censors faint dead away.
