Bitch Slap (2009) revisited

SPOILER WARNING!!! This post spoils movie Bitch Slap (2009).

Bitch Slap was first movie I wrote about. That post is quite terrible. I didn't have routine and couldn't write that well. Not to say I can do that now. It felt like good idea to revisit the movie for one year anniversary. It was not. I couldn't watch it with one sitting. I had to have a break at half way point. This movie doesn't deserve revisit, but because I watched it again, here it is.

This movie has Kevin Sorbo, Lucy Lawless and Renée O'Connor. You know, Hercules, Xena and Gabrielle from Hercules' and Xena's tv shows. Kevin Sorbo has little screen time. Lucy Lawless and Renée O'Connor have blink-and-you-miss them roles. I didn't see Lucy Lawless or Renée O'Connor first time I watched this. It would have been interesting to see these three together. It would have made this movie better.

I didn't have to have break first time, because I wanted to see how the story goes on. It has too much stupid plot twists. Those are only thing, that can make you watch this. You may want to see, where this goes to. But it is not worth the time. This time I knew, where this goes and there was nothing interesting. Women are hot and slow motions have some entertainment value. But if I want to see something like that, I can watch something, where women have even less clothes. Those movies have same level of acting than this and less violence. There are better movies, If I want to see violence.

This is like exploitation movie without exploitation. Cheap movie with cheap effect. Bad acting, bad dialog and stupid story. Exploitation movies try to hide that, with showing something, you don't see in normal movies. This movie doesn't dare to show anything. This has slow motion scenes, where exploitation movies have exploitation. Best word to describe slow motion scenes is naughty.

When you have story with major twists, you give clues during movie. When people watch movie again knowing the twist, they can see the clues and that makes movie even better. Does this movie do that? No. There are nearly no clues of any plot twists before twist is revealed. When you watch this movie again, characters' actions doesn't make sense. You can see main plot twist from miles away, if you have seen one certain movie. There were some clues for that, but character's actions don't make any sense, when you know the truth.

I have to think something else for next year. Maybe something I actually like.
