Cherry Bomb (2011) – An Homage to 80s Violent Revenge Movies
Well this movie came out of no where – a Netflix suggestion for a friend of mine, it’s a movie that neither of us had heard of before. Well, I’m kind of glad we watched it.
The gist of the story is a stripper in 1984 Texas, Cherry, gets raped and beaten in the “Champagne” room at the club she works at. The perpetraors get away with it through collusion and intimidation. Without legal justice, Cherry, and reluctantly her brother, take matters into their own hands and exact mortal payment for their trangressions.
Yes, this is a tale of revenge. The acting isn’t great and the story is simple, yet I enjoyed this pseudo throw back to the 80s. Plus: it’s always fun watching assholes get what’s coming to them. Also, they are being stocked by a tough, ugly and huge hitman.
If you’re looking for a good movie, well this isn’t it. If you’re looking for a good enough movie that doesn’t make you think too much, then this just might fit the bill. I We found it on Netflix – Check it out if you get a chance.
Here is the trailer:
