Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jason Clark
A schlocky, B-movie concept given a stylish, undeniably exciting twist, this auspicious first feature from Andy and Larry Wachowski, (whose most notable previous screen credit was scripting the silly Sylvester Stallone-Antonio Banderas thriller Assassins) gives neo-noir a cheeky new life. It has the standard good guys-bad guys storyline, but the freshness of the film lies not in making our protagonists sexy lesbian women (though that creates much interest), but in the fact that the directors allow sufficient character development. The film is sexy without being smutty, visually innovative without being too in-your-face, and acted to perfection by a highly intuitive cast of performers. It received much notice for its admittedly steamy bedroom scenes between the lead females, but equal notice should be given to the taut, fiercely enjoyable storytelling which, despite the lurid subject matter, never feels exploitive or gives the impression of appealing only to the lowest common denominator. Bound's evocative visual style and color schemes would later present themselves in the Wachowski's 1999 mega-hit The Matrix.

    Great start but...

    Great cinematography and great plot, however lacks on the development of the relationship between the two protagonists. Too bad that it follows the same queer stereotypes instead of breaking them. I would have liked to see more developing of the two main characters and of their relationship, perhaps leading to more surprises and a more unique perspective. Nevertheless, it's still mostly enjoyable!

    absolutely incredibly cunning, witty,sexy movie

    One viewing of this flick is NOT enough, the subleties and inuendoes are amazing. The chemistry between Gershon's and Tilly's character is awesome. The tone here is both campy and suspensefull...Amust see for all..

    Great mob movie!

    This movie is one of the best mob movies I've seen in a long time. The cinematography, script and cast are all amazing. What makes this movie even more interesting is that instead of the two main charaters who pair up against the mob and fall in love aren't the normal ''Bonnie and Claude'' man and woman duo. They are two lesbians. Who would have thought!
