Bitch Slap (2009)

Hot chicks. Big guns. Bad tempers. Crazy kung fu action. What more could any exploitation fan ask for? Director Rick Jacobson takes the same type of high-flying heroines found in the SIN CITY and KILL BILL films and slams his own hard-R stamp on them in BITCH SLAP, a raunchy and over-the-top shoot 'em up with tons of T & A. Trixie, Hel, and Camero bust out of the slammer and head into the desert to recover a stolen payload of diamonds buried deep beneath the sand, but the job won't be easy with bounty hunters and mobsters hot on their trail! BITCH SLAP has huge aspirations that span across several genres, but while Jacobson does well with the comic pacing, explosive styling, and big fight sequences, the story itself just seems to plod along at the complete loss of interest to the viewer. Not even the campy comic book characters or gratuitous scenes of girl-on-girl action can distract from the boring plot, although the frequent references to exploitation classics like THRILLER and FASTER PUSSYCAT! KILL! KILL! are always welcomed. With a more exciting story to go off of, the hope is that a sequel might make up for BITCH SLAP's unfortunate shortcomings.

Rating: 7/10.
