5.0 out of 5 stars Killer Looks May 27, 2009
Format:DVD
I mostly watched Stiletto for Stana Katic(Castle) as she's an absolutely thrilling actress and she's just wonderful to watch.
At first watch I was lightly appalled by the large amount of bloody, gore-ish, violence, but I quickly grew to love it. It has a interesting plotline, murders within a gang with a killer who doesn't mind leaving behind her perfectly shaped tracks. And I mean how many people kill with a gorgeous, bejeweled stiletto now a days? So Raina is out killing members of a gang. Why? Who freaking knows. But she does it so well that even though they know who it is(well one of the cops anyways), she remains effectively out of their grasp.
Stana portrays heartbreak and fury perfectly. And the rest of the cast does exceptionally well too. The crazy girlfriend who really just has relationship issues that she wants to fix is violent as hell. Her boyfriend is a maniacal gang killer. And their gang boss is in love with her. A perfect watch when you're really in the mood for a good action flick.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hot n' Deadly assasin...yes please! August 27, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is yet another female revenge flick with a little twist, I wont give that away. All of the money in this flick was spent on the cast..and with the likes of Tom Berrenger, Michael Biehn, James Russo ( who I phkin' love and is great in this), William Forsythe, Tom Sizemore..and more...they all play their parts to a tee and make what could have been a very formulaic b flick into tons of fun. This one is not really an original in any way...but it is entertaining, and the players all give top notch performances save for Paul Sloan who is the weakest link in the cast. If you are looking for anything ground breaking..you won't find it here, but what you will find is a cool little indie, with great characters that will take the viewer on a fun little ride..if you let it.

3.0 out of 5 stars the lady's weapon of choice . . . November 8, 2009
Format:DVD
A gritty tale of revenge and greed, Stiletto (2008) hits hard from the start with a series of fast-paced bloody kills, and almost never lets up. Stana Katic (TV series Castle) heads the ensemble cast, as Raina Mavias, a native of Russia, taking bloody vengeance against various underworld figures, doing damage up close and personal, with her weapon of choice, a stiletto blade. The steady string of kills so wet and messy, you can almost feel warm blood on your hands.

Crime boss Virgil Vadalos (Tom Berenger) miraculously survives having his belly slit open by Raina, his very determined ex-girlfriend, and brings in police detective Beck (Paul Sloan) to unofficially locate her for him. Vadalos has plenty of muscle available to do his dirty work, including his head of security Alex (William Forsythe), and Lee (Michael Biehn), but the Greek is not above getting a little blood on his hands. As Beck closes in on Raina, his partner and lover, detective Hanover (Kelly Hu), is vexed that he is not following police procedure.

In this dark journey through the criminal underworld, the early victims are mostly unknowns, but the impact is intensified by some memorable kills. Lee experiences the wonders of brain surgery, and Hanover is the subject of a picturesque headshot. The reason for Raina's rampage is finally revealed, and the ending is nicely ambiguous. Directed by Nick Valleonga, and written by Paul Sloan, there aren't really any admirable characters, but the film is certainly intense, with good performances by most, including Sloan, Katic, Biehn, and Amanda Brooks as Penny, Lee's spitfiery girlfriend. William Forsythe as usual, excels at playing a slimeball.

4.0 out of 5 stars stana is a bad a$$ December 5, 2013
By MDalton
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I gave it 4 stars because I am a huge stanatic fan. Love her in everything she's in. She puts her heart & soul into her work & it shows in this film. Shes a bad a$$ in this film. Love her dark stares & her sexy voice. BUT other than that it is a tad bit hard to follow until her character explains what's going on in the middle of the movie. The male actors (if that's what you call them) were trying to act bad a$$ but failed miserably. She needed to take those clowns out. Good film if you are a stana fan otherwise its kinda blah.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hard to rate this one July 14, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Stana Katic as a knife-wielding killer was a surprise. Her accents, as always, were spot-on. Initially the f-bomb was spouted so much by the men in the movie that I decided eliminating them would have brought the script to her lines and 1/2 page for all the men combined!
Lots of darkness and an ending that leaves the viewer with the opportunity to decide who was left standing.
Mostly I was amused by the cover since Stana does not use guns nor does she dress so revealingly. Made me wonder if the film's creators thought it wasn't good enough to attract viewers on its own merits.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Stana April 2, 2013

3.0 out of 5 stars Saved by the female cast December 30, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I rated the movie based on the performances of Stana Katic, Amanda Brooks and Diane Venora. Those performances are phenomenal. Without these performances the movie would get a one star rating.

This is an obvious take off of Tarantino's "Kill Bill", which is a much better movie. Frankly, it needs much better editing.

Conclusion: If you want to see a good movie of this type, watch "Kill Bill". If you want to find out the skill of Stana Katic, definitely watch this movie. If you want to see how a group of actors (all female in this case) can save a bad movie, watch this.

Aside: Stana Katic never wears the cover outfit or uses the guns in the movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars I love Stana but the story on this one doesn't cut it.
Stana Catic is one of my favorites but this film was way before her nose job and Castle. Stick with Castle and you'll enjoy her work more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad.
It's kind of a who's who of has-been, former A-list stars(Tom Berringer, Michael Bein, James Russo, etc). But it will fill a 2 hour time slot in front of a TV quite nicely.

Too much use of F word and not enough story. I think Stana Katic is a better actress than this movie. With the cast it had I thought it would be better.
