Our take

We have Tarantino to thank for re-releasing Jack Hill’s under-appreciated girl-gang film in cinemas in the 1990s, helping reinstate the grindhouse director’s reputation. Rev up your engines for some pitch-perfect one-liners, ass-kicking biker girls, female solidarity, and unexpected pangs of love.
