The Place For The Latest Movie Reviews
On her wedding night, Jade wakes up holding the hand of her dead husband after she narrowly survived a murder attempt by the criminal family she fled from only weeks before. After pawning her wedding ring for a 357 Magnum she tries to kill a member of the family and botches the attempt. However, a Vietnam Veteran "The Hammer", comes to her aid and finishes the kill, saving her life. Over the next year, Hammer trains her to be a methodical assassin and on her wedding anniversary each member of the family will pay for their sins as she hunts them down with six bullets marked for revenge.
What looks to be a happy union between Jade and her new husband quickly turns bad when her former "Family" comes looking to start trouble because Jade left them. Jade and her husband are brutally beaten and left for dead but what they do not know is that Jade survived the attack and now she is hell-bent on getting revenge. Her first stop is a pawn shop where she trades in her ring for a .357 and just enough bullets to put each of her enemies names on them. But Jade lacks what it takes to be a killer so former Vietnam Vet, "The Hammer" comes to her rescue and then begins teaching her all she needs to know about the fine art of taking people out.
After seeing the trailer for ".357:Six Bullets for Revenge" I was very excited to see it. The film wastes no time getting down to business, as it opens we are introduced quickly to Jade and her new husband and right after that her old family pays them a visit. Once Jade awakens the film is pretty much non-stop action the rest of the way.
The cast in the film all gave excellent performances, Laurie Love is fantastic as Jade, she is not only beautiful and easy on the eyes but she handles the action scenes like a pro as well. Also how can you not love any film that has the legendary, Fred Williamson in it? Plus he plays a badass named "The Hammer," how cool is that? The film's supporting cast were all fantastic as well including William Katt as a sleazy pawn shop owner.
Like any Indie film that is done on a low budget the film is not without its flaws but they are too minor to even mention here. Like I said before there is plenty of action with some very cool kills along the way as well. ".357:Six Bullets for Revenge" has everything an action film needs, awesome action and kills, very bad villains and some hot chicks as well including the film's heroin. What the film lacks in budget it more than makes up for in everything else, revenge has never been more sweeter. I recommend checking out this fun little gem to any fan of action or exploitation films, this movie just reeks of awesomeness. This is one film that delivers and I congratulate Director, Brian Skiba and his entire cast and crew for making such an entertaining film to watch. Everyone in the film looked like they had a fun making it and it translates back to the audience.
