[ATTENTION: This review reveals content of the movie.]
What happened!! This movie was my laughing stock of the summer lineup until my girlfriend dragged me to it. Surprisingly, the first two thirds of the movie were very good, very suspenseful and exciting, not overly unrealistic. You could sense Slim's frustration (incidentally, how could anyone with a hiney that big ever get the nickname Slim?) Then, all of a sudden, the whole tone of the movie changes and she becomes La Femme Nikita and the movie just went straight to hell. What began as an edge-of-your-seat thriller was suddenly a girl power piece of trash. It was no longer exciting or thrilling; it was Xena. I have a pretty good tolerance for movie bull**** and a better-than-average ability to suspend my disbelief, but this was just idiotic. I'm supposed to believe that this chick would suddenly become freakin' Rocky in a month? She sends her daughter off to live with friends while she spends her waking hours sweating in some gym so she can go and break into her husband's house, then slap him around until he decides to hit back, then beat him to death. The guy had two guns in his house, all she had to do was shoot him, then put his fingerprints all over them. Instead, she risks her life by sealing herself and him inside his house with no other means of defense but her fists. I don't think there is a woman alive on this earth who is so stupid as to do something like that. The movie would have been much better if she had taken some self-defense courses and then he managed to catch up with her in some remote location, and then she beats him up in self defense. I can buy that. But this? This was a marketing gimmick. Had it stayed as good as the first half, a 9 it would have received. Only victims of domestic violence have any right to enjoy this flick.
