Bloody Mama is an average low budget gangster film that is quite entertaining, but also has plenty of wasted potential in being a great picture. The cast are good here, but I felt that the story lacked a bit in comparison to other genre pictures. Roger Corman does assemble a great cast here, but his script does lack a bit and it is an average gangster film. Despite this, Bloody Mama is still an entertaining film, and a must see for gangster film fans; however it could have been much better as well. In terms of a low budget cult film, Bloody Mama is quite good, but like I said, considering its subject should have been a standout feature. The feel of the film feels slightly rushed, which is a great shame because the film has all the necessities to really make this a standout gangster feature. Other films of the era that deal with outlaws are better such as Bonnie & Clyde. Bloody Mama is a good film, but it's one of those movies that never realizes its potential due to an underdeveloped script. Still for what we get here, this is an entertaining ride, but considering other crime films, I expected a bit more out of this one. Bloody Mama has its flaws, but it's not a bad movie by any means, it's one that had the misfortune of having a rushed script. Luckily the cast keep it together, and Roger Corman's direction is effective to make this one soar above its limitations. For cult film fans, Bloody Mama is entertaining viewing, but like I stated, it should have been better, however it's a well crafted film nonetheless.
