ALLEY CAT (1984)
The best way to describe this female vigilante flick is that it's basically a not-quite-as-good version of SAVAGE STREETS. Similarly to that film it deals with a chick who has a family member, in this case her grandmother, attacked by a street gang and from there it's revenge time. Pretty basic stuff. You do get a lot of nudity from our star, Karin Mani, which is always nice. Strangely Ms. Mani didn't do a whole lot of acting besides this. She did go on to appear in AVENGING ANGEL which is another similar film. She does a fairly decent job in this although overall this feels pretty tame compared to some of the other vigilante movies that came out around this time(THE EXTERMINATOR probably being my favorite from this era). Worth a look if you really dig vigilante/revenge flicks with tough women heroes kicking ass.
