Movie Info

Anemic in its action sequences and main character -- a woman who has been raped once and decides to eliminate rapists with a newly-acquired handgun -- this film's vigilante justice is not much in the way of vigilante, or justice. Valarie (Denise Coward) is the rape victim who grabs her gun and hangs out at night spots just to catch would-be attackers and gun them down. Her series of killings is bandied about in the press as the "Dum-Dum" murders because of the bullets she uses, not as a comment on her mental acuity or lack thereof. Bored with her fiance, Valarie falls for the detective who is looking both for her rapist and the "Dum-Dum" killer at the same time. One might say he is in for a surprise.more
