sandracine's rating of the film No Mercy

So bored with wimpy female characters, whose beauty is so breathtaking, nothing other than banging the handsome interloper, crying and screaming on cue, is expected from them. Fight back! Kick ass. Stop whimpering. How about when our hero recites his faults and flaws, she just melts against him with relief: that he will take care of her; she`s allowed into his shitty apartment, with his shitty attitude. Ah!.
