This movie has two strong hot young women who have super fighting skills. Despite that silliness, the movie works. First of all, it has that 70’s soundtrack. I know that lots of people hate the 70’s, but I happen to like its music. Furthermore, there is the cornball humor that kind of works. At least, I was amused, It is not easy to make me amused, Lots of stuff that many people think are funny I don’t. This humor was way more funny than Amy Schumer on steroids.
One bit that I particularly liked was the self-awareness schtick about how if they break the sexual tension between the main guy and the main chick, that the audience interest would wane. I suppose that you had to be there to really appreciate it.
As for the women, all of them were hot. What else would you expect. The four main female characters were two battling sisters who spend much of the movie in one continuous cat-fight, an arrogant bitching queen who continually gets her come-uppance, and a cute empath who provides a contrast to the strong women populating the screen. Naturally, the empath character makes all of the other women appear less appealing, though I doubt that was the intention.
The movie ends up being about friends and loyalty, which all works pretty well. The special effects were good enough, and thankfully did not drown out the story. Though I never really could figure out the villain’s motivation. Perhaps I think too much.
