Its hardly an elaborate plan, this simply a basic plot involving Milla setting up her violent boyfriend in a murder so she can escape his brutal beatings and her old lifestyle. Its OK, the cast is good but the story is very basic and nothing new. I love Milla, she's very cute and very sexy, that's the best bit haha the rest is run of the mill. Macfadyen is quite good but alittle hammy as the violent 'Big Al',
but nothing really exciting happens here, very average.
Well, that was a waste of 101 minutes. I never would have known that .45 existed, if not for the presence of Milla Jovovich. That ignorance of this movie, probably would have been to my overall advantage. It's safe to say that I am not a fan.
.45 is basically an R-rated Lifetime Movie of the Week. The story is a messy mix of domestic violence, crime, revenge, double-crosses, and general pointlessness. I was massively disinterested within the first ten minutes, but I forced myself to watch all of it, because of my misguided aversion to not finishing a movie (unless I absolutely must, ex. Darkness). No one came out of this one looking good, even the pretty Ms. Jovovich. I'm struggling to think of a single redeeming quality...nope. I'm drawing a blank. Even if you're a die-hard fan of Milla, I still could not recommend this. She does have talent, but none of it is on display, here. It's been a few months since I've seen a movie that I enjoyed this little.
Nobody does revenge like a woman.
