A group of female prisoners are assembled to infiltrate a people trafficking prison for a daring rescue.

For novelty cult value you can’t beat this offering, shortly after watching The Expendables I made a wish list for a female version, and to Asylums credit both 80s stars Brigitte Nielsen and Cynthia Rothrock appear, sadly Grace Jones is not included, but there could always be a sequel (with Nielsen’s return).

Nielsen puts in an entertaining evil performance and Vivica A. Fox battles through. Okay so the characters don’t have second names, yes the stunt men extras act like they just stepped out of the A-Team, granted the effects and sets lack some lustre but there’s some solid action pieces mostly involving Loken or Zoe Bell. On top of that you have a few humorous one liners, violence and gun play. It’s B action cult gold.

Yes it’s a pity it doesn’t have a big budget look but what it lacks in production values it makes up for it with it’s fun ensemble cast, take it with a pinch of salt and you’ll have a blast.
