dirty harry's love child
I hope the next time Kathy Long makes a film she can unclench that jaw - maybe it's from watching just a little too many Clint Eastwood movies. Visually she's cute, perky, toned and buff and, pugilistically speaking, even a bit more impressive than Cynthia Rothrock. She's got a lot of raw talent, and might have been more believable in a movie like "G. I. Jane" - you know, female overcoming the system, kicking male butt as well as the next guy, nitro-in-a- perfume-bottle-kind-of-thing.
This is not a bad film at all, and features a very surprising turn by Ginger Lynn in a dramatic role as a town local. Serious kudos to director Fritz Kiersch for coaxing a terrifically drawn performance ... from skin queen Ginger Lynn? Wow, way to go Ginger!
We've seen the storyline a million times, but the action is solid and the production value is terrific, which is a testament to the director and the producers. The "High Plains Drifter" impersonation must've driven the sound guys crazy, but overall this movie is pretty good thanks largely to Fritz Kiersch and the guys behind the camera.
