Milla Jovovich stars as Kat, a beautiful bad girl with a passion for guns and danger. Stuck in a life of crime and controlled by her ruthless, drug-dealing boyfriend Big Al (Angus Macfadyen), she wants more than what he has to offer. When Kat starts making her own deals and Big Al’s sidekick (Stephen Dorff) professes his love for her, tensions rise and jealousy explodes. Desperate to start a better life, Kat knows revenge is the only answer. Now, with help on her side, she can take down Big Al once and for all.

I rented this DVD with no prior knowledge of its content and was thoroughly impressed by the cast and screenplay by first-time director Gary Lennon. I recall Milla Jojovich as being mildly amusing in "The Fifth Element", but she has matured into a devastatingly effective lead actress. Her chemistry with co-star Angus Macfayden (as "Big Al") is palpable, with steaming passion, violence, and finally a level of hate-revenge that rivals "Body Heat" or "Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolfe". Her character, Kat,is a master manipulator and it is mesmerizing to watch her slowly gain control of her situation and punish those who have caused her harm.

Do not be mislead by the variation in critical response. This movie is absolutely superb. If clever dialog, brilliant acting, strong memorable characters, and a great story appeal to you, then I strongly suggest that you rent, borrow, buy, or steal a copy and see for yourself.

Before watching Gary Lennon's ".45," I was under the impression that this modern-day noir film is about a vengeful woman battered by her lover. Well, the film's story itself is essentially true, but what impressed me most while watching the film is not the revenge part, but the credible performances from the leading actors Milla Jovovich and Angus Macfadyen, and their chracters' love and hate relations.

Milla Jovoich plays "Kate," living with Angus Macfadyen's "Big Al," who is, in her words, "king of neighborhood" in New York City. They do petty crimes, selling guns and other stolen goods, but Kate really wants a quite life by seaside. But Big Al wouldn't listen, preferring to do his "business" in his own way, dragging his childhood friend Reilly (Stephen Dorff) into another car theft. Moreover, when he is in a bad mood, jealous Big Al beats her up terribly and nearly kills her.

Kate meets social worker Liz (Aisha Tyler) working for battered women. Despite the sincere advice from Liz, Reilly and Vic (Sarah Strange), another friend of Kate, Kate refuses to leave Big Al until she decided on a more drastic move than what they suggested.

".45" is part about domestic violence, and I think the film is credible in describing such a case of men treating women terribly, thanks to the strong acting from Jovovich (with her swollen face) and Macfadyen as egocentric small-time crook.

The film also contains lots of F-words and one sexy, hot shower room scene, which I should think are part of the film's merits. Evidently Milla Jovovich is trying to seek a new direction in her career, and though sometimes she looks overacting, her acting is very good, far better than in "The House on Turk Street" or "Ultraviolet.

A few years back a staple of "The Amanda Show" was a routine about an Eastern European immigrant family who ran a video store. Instead of buying a copy of the actual mainstream movie, the family would produce a makeshift version with their camcorder, complete with broken English and really horrible acting. When customers complained about the rental, the family members would say: "Is better! Much better"!

The straight-to-video film ".45" (2007) is a worthy successor to these home movie sequences. Perhaps the closest thing you will find to a constant 97-minute mockfest moment, so bad that you can't believe that any professional actor was associated with it. Indeed much of the unintended humor stems from how obviously close-to-laughter Angus MacFadden and Milla Jovovich are as they desperately struggle to keep straight faces while dealing with the silly dialogue and acting for the camera direction of writer/director Gary Lennon. The editing must have been like scotch taping together everything that didn't qualify for the blooper reel, the only 97 minutes of shooting where the cast was not cracking up with giggles and laughter.

In the tradition of most recent ill-advised attempts at cinema, the director inflicts a pretentious commentary on anyone masochistic enough to select the commentary option on the DVD menu. In this the delusional Lennon appears to sincerely believe that he has made a cutting edge film. Lennon is not perceptive enough to realize that characterization does not come from hokey monologues or that voiceovers work best for characterization if they subtly contradict the events on the screen.

".45" is presented as a kind of parody documentary, often showing hillarious clips of interviews with the main characters' friends and relatives. In that respect, its comic format reminds me of THIS IS SPINAL TAP, A MIGHTY WIND, BEST IN SHOW, FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION, and other films starring Christopher Guest, Michael McKean, Harry Shearer, Catherine O'Hara, Fred Willard, and that gang.

Milla Jovovich, who stars as Kat, a small-time New York City gun dealer, finds herself being physically abused by her live-in boyfriend Big Al (Angus Macfadyen), a small-time fence and gun-dealer. She decides that she needs more help than a social worker (Aisha Tylyer) can legitimately provide her, so she takes steps to have Big Al permanently removed from her life. Since she is physically attractive to both men and women, it appears that she will have no difficulty getting the help she wants.

Viewers need to be aware that this video is FULL OF NUDITY and FULL OF "R-RATED LANGUAGE," so they will probably not feel comfortable watching it with either their young children or their parents and grandparents.

Throughout 97 percent of this movie you will probably find yourself laughing very hard, so you might want to urinate just before viewing it.

My sole objection was to the 0.25 percent of the film which showed very vividly the explicit bloody violence Big Al inflicts on Kat. Yes, we need to know what he has done in order to appreciate her need for revenge--but the majority of the violence could have been presented indirectly with shadows and sounds and a scene or two showing her cuts and bruises. I am not against graphic violence per se when it fits the mood and plot of a film (such as ROB ROY or BRAVEHEART or MAD MAX)--but I am against whatever disrupts the unity and flow of what is essentially a comedy, and this sort of material did so in this film.
