A new twist on the rape-revenge hits hard in GIRLS AGAINST BOYS. Check out my review below.
DIRECTOR: Austin Chick
CAST: Danielle Panabaker, Nicole LaLiberte, Liam Aiken, Michael Stahl-David, Andrew Howard
Shae (Danielle Panabaker) is a normal college student and part-time bartender who within one weekend goes from hurt by her boyfriend to mass murderer in this new twist on rape-revenge. On a whim, Shae goes out with a coworker, Lu (Nicole LaLiberte) to help ease her pain after a breakup, and ends up getting raped by a guy she meets at a bar. When she goes to report it at the police station with Lu, she realizes the police will be no help. Lu then takes Shae on a murdering spree against all men that have wronged her, and anyone who pretty much stands in their way.
GIRLS AGAINST BOYS is a pretty decent modern-day rape-revenge movie. The beginning is a bit slow-moving, but once the momentum picks up, its a heart-pounding, white-knuckled what-will-happen-next kind of flick. The only thing that bothered me is that it takes place in October, the week of Halloween, and everyone was dressed in short shorts and tank tops and it takes place in NYC. Anyone who’s been to NYC in October knows that its almost IMPOSSIBLE to have that kind of weather just before Halloween. Acting wise, the movie’s leading ladies had some great acting chops. Danielle Panabaker played a great naive girl turned murderess. Nicole LaLiberte plays a fantastic bad-ass chick who has no qualms about pulling a trigger.
If you happen to be able to catch this movie, definitely do, but give it time and don’t give up after the first hour. The second half of the movie is non-stop action!
