"I would have given it 0 starts if i could. The only reason i got this was to see Denise Matthews (formerly known as Vanity) acting. Her acting and Michael Nouri's were pretty good, but as for Joey Travolta he was terrible. The plot is bad, it has too much violence and unecessary nudity and when is the movie industry going to stop mixing sex w/violence? Will it ever end? and of course it has the never-ending obligatory gun to the head cliche/scene. This movie has characters you don't even care about when they get killed becuse of the atrocious dialoge and stupid plot. I really suffered to get through this movie just too see the short scenes she was in.It is refreshing to finally see Vanity in a role where she is not playing a victim or being murdered or a sex object. Her time onscreen is very little and the wardrobe for her was not flattering but you get to for the first time see some of her inner beauty come out on celluloid and you can tell she is a different person here. She was a natural at acting and its a big shame she did not get/choose better roles to drugs. I don't understand if she preaches now why she would even be in such a violent film that is negative about women? One highlight is the very end before the credits where she is doing a bit of singing and her voice sounds better. Don't waste your money on this awful film, just rent it if you must. I'm selling this and want my money back."

"This film is a low budget film that stars Joey Travolta,and pop singer/know born-again christian, vanity. The story line is not to great and the acting is just ok. But the good thing is that it keeps you entertained and you see Vanity in one of her last performances, before her preaching days,also she does noy play the typical sexy vixen like she did in the past. The film is just ok."
