Movie Reviews

An awesome, feel-good, empowering, must see film
Jason Grant | Alberta, Canada | 01/30/2005

"So I bought this album at the local video store, for the simple fact that it looked like it would be good. It was, in fact, right up my alley, a "bandit" movie, somewhat of a buddy roadtrip flick, and a defying society film. Reminded me of something like "Thelma & Louise' when I read the back.

However, once I got home and put in the DVD I realized that this was an all german movie. At first I was disappointed but watched anyways, as I usually don't mind subtitled movies. Well this movie blew me away. You really get attached to these ladies and want to know what drives them and made them the way they are. The music as well in this film is great. In the special features on the DVD there are two music videos or "Catch Me" and 'Puppet". They are VERY representative of the movie and damn good songs.

I would recommend this movie to anyone. It was definitely a great find!"

Girl Bandits on the run

"I first saw this film late at night on showtime, and thought noa another subtilted flick, but after about 15 min. I feel into it. It grabed me like a lonly cell mate. I enjoyed this flick with gusto. It has such a great visual and eye catching sceans. The end blew me away even tho I wished for another ending , but it fit it perfect. The girls looked even like they were on the run, they were not babes but, but chicks that I would sure run with and want to be around , yea I would do them all, they would probley all whip my butt, and I would like it. This is a good film, I checked with some movie places to get me this flick, and found it cheaper on Amazon. Can't wait to get it ."
Not your typical subtitled movie!!!

"To bad I was not well informed in my youth!!! This movie was phenominal! Not only was the plot very well paced but the music was incredible (I bought the soundtrack too!). What I found interesting that the movie was done in German and was subtitled in English but ALL of the songs were done in English. What I also found surprising is that all the songs were done by the actresses and they WERE NOT AND NEVER WERE A GROUP! They could have been a very, very GOOD all girl rock band! Do an IMBD search of Bandits to get a synopsis of the plot and all I can say is GET THE MOVIE and find the soundtrack if you can!"
