Yep, this week’s review is for Bitch Slap, a movie that hearkens back to the exploitation and grindhouse movies of days gone by.
Let’s see this is a movie about three woman who are out to score a butt load of diamonds buried out in the desert. The movie does have on interesting bit of storytelling in that it starts at the end and the story is told through older and older flashbacks until all the big surprises are revealed at the very end. Mixed in this “story”. The red-headed Hel is the brains of the group. Camero is the psycho gun bunny. And Trixie the Stripper. Is, well, a stripper named Trixie. You get the idea. Of course, the real mover behind the scenes is the legendary killer and crime lord, Pinkie.
We have plenty guns, cleavage, violence, cleavage, lies, cleavage, hidden agendas, cleavage, water fights (Yes, there’s a water fight in the desert.), cleavage, fist fights, cleavage, sex, cleavage and more cleavage. So basically, it’s hot chicks with guns with a little story throw in. The movie probably would still be enjoyable with the sound turned off. I’m not saying that it’s bad. It is what it is. I wouldn’t put up there with a Tarantino film but it is still is enjoyable. Although it does start to get over top towards the end. And I really wouldn’t recommend it as a date movie.
For all you geeks out there, you’ll probably recognize some of the cast. Showing up in bit parts, you’ll see Kevin Sorbo, Micheal Hurst, Lucy Lawless and Renee O’Connor. Just to refresh your memory that’s Hercules, Iolaus, Xena and Gabrielle.
My Recommendation: Buy it used.
