WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
After being wronged by her mob boss boyfriend, a beautiful Russian girl sets out for revenge by killing everyone involved.

Why does this sound familiar?
IS IT A GOOD MOVIE?
ďAlso starring Michael Biehn, William Forsythe and Tom Sizemore.Ē My God, every filmís synopsis should end with that.

If thereís one thing that might make you look twice at STILETTO, besides the jarring cover art, itís the cast list. Aside from the aforementioned trio, the movie also features names like Tom Berenger, Kelly Hu, D.B. Sweeny and Dominique Swain. Itís like a whoís who of actors that might make you go ďHey, I remember them!Ē

And populating a flick with cult fave B-movie thespians might seem fun on paper, but you gotta remember that thereís a reason these guys donít get serious work too often. And without a decent script, everyone flounders. The acting is just godawful and even worse, boring. I love Michael Biehn as much as any heterosexual schmoe can, but when the manís off, heís really off. Like in most of STILETTO.

There is some great violence and gore to be found, but the rest of the movie is pretty much useless and pointless. (No nudity in a movie with Tom Sizemore? Really?!) Obviously itís a take off on the popularity of KILL BILL, but unlike Tarantinoís movie itís lacking in style and excitement. Thereís nothing fresh, interesting or enjoyable here for even those with undiscerning tastes. And the most bland and generic actor in the entire movie, Paul Sloan, is also responsible for the script. That should be warning enough.

FINAL DIAGNOSIS
Despite a generic, but potentially fun premise and some interesting casting choices, STILETTO is your typical direct-to-video crap thatís best left ignored on the shelf.

Extra Tidbit: What happened to Tom Berenger? I didnít even recognize him in this movie. MAJOR LEAGUE, man.
