Russ Meyer meets Frank Miller
I had read a lot of bad reviews recommending not wasting time watching this movie, but I have to honestly say that I really enjoyed "Bitch Slap". I think you have to take the movie as what it is and what it is intended to be, an homage to the 1950s-70s B movies mixing hot girls, fast cars, foul language, and outrageous action. And cleavage, of course, tons of jaw-dropping shots of double-D cleavage.
The story is indeed a bit flat, but never boring and has quite a few surprises due to its non-linear storytelling.
Visually the movie is stunning. The mix of slow-motion shots and fast paced scenes is superb and it is extremely well edited. Overall it reminded me a bit of Zack Snyder's adaptation of Frank Miller's 300. (No, I am not joking.)
It is in deed a kind of a modern remake of the infamous Russ Meyer movie "Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!" from 1965 in the style of a Frank Miller comic.
The three main female characters - a dark-haired stripper, a feisty red-head and a psychopathic blonde - are cleverly chosen and perfectly portrait by Julia Voth, Erin Cummings, and America Olivo. The acting is not what you would expect from a self-declared B movie - it is actually very good - and the change from serious acting to comical performance is well done. But what stands out are the stunning cat-fights and steamy love scenes. Stunt Choreographer Zoe Bell has done a marvelous job as the fight scenes look gorgeous.
Bitch Slap is definitely not a movie you want to watch together with your wife at movie night, but if you like hot girls with over-the-top cleavage, sexy outfits, well choreographed cat-fights, and have a stomach for the sometimes graphical violence then you will enjoy this movie.
I for sure did - even if I was maybe more staring than actually watching. It was a lot of fun!
