If your idea of a happy ending is one villain having his throat cut, another being burned alive, a third sinking in a bog and a fourth getting run over, this movie is for you. Not that the bad guys don’t deserve it, having spent 89 minutes raping, murdering, pillaging and—worse—overacting. But the violence lacks focus, unlike that in Sam Peckinpah’s Straw Dogs, whose revenge-against-hoodlums theme was similar. Here, however, a woman—a superliberated model played with lack of conviction by Brenda Vaccaro—rises up to smite the evildoers and, presumably, warm the hearts of feminist vigilantes everywhere. (R)
