When was the last time you saw a movie about a couple of adorable girls who also just happen to be quite professional and competent contract killers? As an added bonus, Danny Trejo appears as their boss, who gets a wet willie from Violet, which he likes a little too much for her liking, and then plays pat-a-cake with Daisy as they discuss their latest job, a man who inexplicably WANTS to be murdered, and whom Daisy also plays pat-a-cake with while the duo figure out exactly what to do with him. The girls are more than a little perplexed by his behavior, and decide they don't really want to finish the job until they find out WHY he wants to die.
This movie is like a breath of fresh air, although it might be more than a little disturbing, if you think about it, how two such very young women can be so casual and unfazed by the many pitfalls and consequences of their chosen profession. We get some glimpses of their obvious callousness early on, and it becomes even more apparent during the "internal bleeding dance" scene and when Violet takes her shower (no nudity, sorry).
If you're tired of seeing the same crap rolled up in different wrappers, give this one a try. Unlike most indies, it doesn't suffer from pretentiousness or an obtrusive soundtrack of obscure music. This is quite simply a rare gem of a film that unfortunately most people have probably never heard of before. Do yourself a favor and watch it, then do your friends a favor and tell them about it.
