Four strippers, Kiss (Natascha Hopkins), Treasure (Tanra Dae), Kurious
(Janey B) and newby Promise (Nathalia Castellon), receive an invitation to
a pricey winetasting as a tip for their performances. Once there, they
party till they drop - and when they wake up they have to realize they've
been drugged and made captives by slick villain Gibson, who plans to try
them as test subjects for his new supersoldier wonderdrug - in pitting
them in fights to the death against one another and against two more of
his test subjects, Fortune (Kylie Rae) and Dream (Kiersten Hall). And he
has invited Senator Graham (Julia Farino) and General Dixon (John Ross
Clark) as potential buyers, too, and wants to put up a show for them. And
in the ring, the girls really do their worst, pretty much ripping each
other apart, as the drug numbs everything apart from their fighting and
survival skills and their killer instincts. It's just that outside the
ring, the drug's brainwashing effect wears off, and the girls make
numerous attempts to either escape or overcome their guards, attempts that
can be barely contained by Gibson's crew, so Gibson tries to bring up the
girls against one another rather than against him as their mutual enemy,
to the point where he gives away Promise's darkest secret. But eventually
he has to realize he has created a war machine with Kiss that might go
over his head - in a way, mission accomplished, but it soon becomes
unclear whether that's a good thing for pretty much anyone ...
this is a film one will watch (and probably love) due to its many rather
brutal (and well-executed) catfights - and of course, there's nothing
wrong with watching girls kicking some serious (literal) ass for a change.
But it's a pretty charming film for more reasons than that: For one, its
comicbook approach to things in both story and style is rather
irresistible, its slight attempts at socio-political satire are very
welcome, as is the fact that the plot isn't dumbed down to insult the
audience's intelligence. And solid performances of course help making this
a very joyful watch.
