The acting is so bad that apparently none of the performers ever got another job in the movies, and the costumes in Ben Hur seem less dated that those on display here.

A terrific example of efficient, resourceful filmmaking, and its depiction of urban ills is, if anything, all too prophetic.

Just good enough to make it understandable why someone else might really like it. And it's just bad enough to make you wonder about such a person.

Badly acted, written and directed.

A 1975 exploitation dud, this is the kind of movie Cinemax screens late at night. It's not just bad, it's execrable.

To watch Switchblade Sisters is to visit a never-never land of shopworn media images colliding in a tabloid high school of the mind.

Audience Reviews for Switchblade Sisters

Summary: Your typical 70s exploitation film about an all-girl gang who goes to war with not only a rival gang, but themselves as well. The Good: The fight scenes are decent, and all the girls are very beautiful. Acting is decent with the exception of a few. The Bad: As you can expect from a 70s exploitation flick, the story is boring and most of the characters are forgettable. Robbie Lee, I can't say she is a bad actor, but she has a very different kind of acting style that you either love or hate. Acting: 6/10 Story: 5/10 Originality: 5/10 Soundtrack: 6/10 Characters: 8/10 Overall: 6.5/10 Sexiness: (The following is my Review for the fappers 18+): There was no nudity except for a quick boob shot, but all the girls are very beautiful, especially the two main girls, Lace (Robbie Lee) and Maggie (Joanne Nail). I thought Lace was super pretty, especially her face and eyes. Maggie is your classic blonde girl from the 70s. There are some nice cat-fight scenes and a semi-rape scene with good moaning but not much skin. Fap Rating: 7/10

A fantastic girl gang action drama movie, I really liked it. The actors are good, the story is realistic and very good. It's full of action and violence. It's a lot of fun, and I highly recommend it.
