'Concrete Blondes'
(Diora Baird, Carly Pope, Samaire Armstrong, John Rhys-Davies, et al / DVD / NR / (2012) 2014 / Inception Media Group)

Overview: A wild, party-night out leads three twenty-something women to stumble on a suitcase with 3 million dollars in cash. After a gruesome, gang-land shootout where everybody dies, the girls step in and walk away with all the money. In a frantic attempt to keep it all, the girls hatch a plan to smuggle it out of the country.

DVD Verdict: OK, just to get you all prepared for this flick, should you choose to invest in it (which you shuld, actually!), there are three women who all share an apartment. Kris (Carly Pope) does taxes for people, but also has a secret past! Her girlfriend is Tara (Samaire Armstrong), a beauty amongst beauties, fo' sho'! That sad, she is child-like in her choices and thoughts. Lastly there is Sammi (Diora Baird) who is nothing more than, well, the infamous "third wheel" of the troupe!

Moving on, and without giving anything away that wasn't already in the description, we get introduced to the girls in such a way that we have to identify with them; me thinks. We all travel in packs of two or more likely three and there are always one of each as described above. Anything more than that would be that the characters are oddly "cartoonish" at times - with an out of nowhere darkness therein!

So, when Sammi and Tara find a bag of money, this sets the wheels in motion. The film has Tarantino-style flashbacks where some work, some don't. Sure the dialog needed some work, but knowing the "final outcome" via the early flashbacks was also needless. All that said, well worth a night in on a rainy Saturday evening. This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.77:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
