Very cool twist on an old formula
Director Russell Emanuel does a good job of giving us a different view of the old spy / crime fighter genre in GIRL WITH GUN. The focus for this slick little short is not the usual boring "let's blow up something and watch non-stop fighting" for no apparent reason. Instead, director, Emanuel offers an inside look at the private daily struggles of a kick ass crime fighter / all American girl who can't quiet get her personal life together. The short is a welcome big big step up from the usual disappointing shorts I'm used to seeing. And of course it doesn't hurt that the lead actress is a beautiful blond who wears a skin tight leather jump suit, drives a hummer and carries a very big gun.
