Review

Freshly and interestingly directed. --The New York Times

[Ferrara] brings a patina of slick visual sophistication to this . . . revenge thriller. --Time Out

Ferrara's gritty and powerful style makes MS. 45 a standout. --TV Guide

Customer Reviews

A cult classic that actually deserves to be a cult classic.
Joey T
Though she wrote and acted in other films, her work with Ferrara is her most iconic.
Richard Ross
Never saw this but always wanted too, wasn't expecting much.

In the seventies and early eighties, a sub-genre of the action exploitation market was the revenge thriller. In mainstream movies, the Death Wish franchise which kicked off so strongly in 1974 kept Charles Bronson seeking vigilante style justice for almost two decades (with less and less payoff for its audience). And underground filmmakers also found a natural niche in these violent endeavors. One of the most notorious pictures of the era was 1978's "I Spit on Your Grave," where a woman strikes back against those who have violated her. These are but a few of the many highlights of the genre, and both were significant precursors and influences for director Abel Ferrara's similarly themed "Ms. 45." From 1981, this movie may be less well known than some of the bigger titles, but it still stands as an interesting example of vigilante excess. A new DVD/Blu-ray label, Drafthouse Films, is giving us a second look at this somewhat forgotten film and offers us quite a few extras including interviews and featurettes.

The heroine of "Ms. 45" is a mute young woman working in New York's fashion district. So unprepossessing and retiring, she barely makes an impact at all as the movie begins. Of course, the screenplay makes the streets of New York very mean indeed with over-the-top scenarios that have virtually every woman mauled any time she steps out into public. Trust me, there's nothing subtle here. Early on, the young seamstress named Thana (well played by Zoë Lund) is brutally attacked not just once, but twice in about fifteen minutes. I told you these were mean streets! As she lashes out in self-defense, it will forever change the course of her life.

This is a hard movie to watch. Cut or uncut. This could be why it has a cult following in this twisted world of ours. This Korean import is matted at over 1.85 pillar-box (you can zoom to fill your 16:9 tv with little image lost) and it still look pretty good. I took off a star because it is not anamorphic. I have not seen a 4:3 letterbox in a LONG time. I wonder if this is the cut version? Leonard Maltin has the running time as 84 minutes, this version runs at 80 minutes. Cut or uncut, this is one violent little film...but it's good!
Why can't a good company give this a good DVD release with director commentary and special features is beyond me. I knew to avoid the Image version because of the editing...this too could be edited-I wouldn't know. Got it for under 20 bucks and its not bad for the price.
This is a treasure for the director's fans, until a good version comes out this will have to do.Ms .45 aka. Angel of Vengeance (1981, Import , All Regions)

The 2014 edition from Drafthouse finally gives MS. 45 (aka ANGEL OF VENGEANCE) the treatment it deserves on DVD and Blu-ray.
First and most important it restores the alibi cuts imposed on the movie the dreadful MPAA (including the rather harmless shot in the leg, which was notably cut out in the R rated prints), making this the first uncut print available in the US since its Unrated VHS release.
The picture quality is an improvement, yet not perfect, but probably the best it will ever be.
Fans outside America and Canada be warned - this Blu-ray/DVD is region A/1. (The French DVD is region B, Uncut and in English).
Definitely Abel Ferrara's best picture next to BAD LIEUTENANT and KING OF NEW YORK, MS. 45 has one of the most memorable finales ever filmed.
Actress Zoe Tamerlis (Lund) (R.I.P.) was the ideal cast as the main character, her portrayal of Thana is convincingly realistic and the psychological aspect is brought to screen very well, something that most rape and revenge movie just lack.
MS. 45 is one of the best movies in the revenge/vigilante genre, right up there with Charles Bronson's DEATH WISH.
There also is a 2000 DVD release available from Image Entertainment which is to be avoided (badly cut R rated version).

She finds a new sense of purpose and female empowerment as she takes back the night from the criminal element using a trusty 45 caliber gun.
