The major problem I have with this movie is it is about a stripper who gets attacked, rape and seeks revenge. The only thing you the viewer see is the revenge. Allow me to explain, Cherry (the title character of this film) is a stripper and you never see her nude. In addition, the attack in question is never really shown. Now I don't want to sound like a sick pervert or a misogynist, but if you are going to have a movie about a stripper there should be some level of nudity. Besides what sleazy 80s movie didn't have nudity? It is like making a movie about boxing without ever showing a fight. Boy those "Rocky" movies would have been different. And in order for the revenge to have some merit, some of the attack needs to be displayed. The following formula is what made "I Spit on Your Grave" so amazing. I found the attack in ISOYG so unsettling that when the revenge came it brought some merit and credibility. Not for nothing, but this same equation worked for how many "Death Wish" films?
As for the acting, well it really isn't that great. In contrast, I didn't go into this movie looking for award winning acting. Yet the actress who played Cherry did have a likeable quality. As for the campy value, it is pretty high. See my previous comment about the acting.Read more ›
But I'll tell you, I have it bad for Julin (aka Julin Jean). I loved her in Sweatshop & The Final, even though she only had bit parts. And yes, her side career as a lingerie model does provide lots of intriguing imagery. So I knew that I was sort of "letting the little head do the thinking" when I decided to buy the movie Cherry Bomb.
Really all I knew about the movie was that Julin was in it. There was a cute girl in red underwear on the thumbnail, but I couldn't tell if it was my lovely J-girl or not.
But it was. Julin is in center stage in this one. As a stripper who gets gang raped and then goes on a brutal revenge spree, discovering that she has a special genius for retribution.
And you know what? Julin was awesome! She has the chops. Not just the chops for the by-the-books cheesy stripper revenge Grindhouse exploitation flick that this film looks like at the outset, but the chops for the really strong, gritty dramatic moments that are artfully woven in.
Among other things this is the best stripper movie I've ever seen--not saying much because there aren't many (horror movies tend to be extreme, and if you're just looking for an easy victim why not write in a prostitute rather than a stripper? It's a more extreme choice...Read more ›
It gets broken after being a victim to sexual crimes Cherry goes off the deep end and begins a rampage that would make Jon Rambo call the cops. This is not a T & A flick although you may get a glimsp here and there. This is revenege and Cherry is a cold one.
