A good disguise and quite a dramatic turn of events.
I think she overreacted big time, I mean her partner was beaten with a bat, ok, but that’s no reason to shoot someone.
And if she shoots it doesn’t need to be a deadly shot.
Ok, it was pretty dark… but that boy with his bright shirt was still visible well enough…
All in all a solid scene.
Later in the movie, we have terrorists in gas masks. There is also one female terrorist, but she is infiltrating the event as a waitress and the only terrorist that doesn’t wear a gas mask at any time.
Let’s start with the bad aspects. It’s a soap opera with a language I don’t understand. So, I don’t have any connection to these characters. Who are they? What do they want? Why are they doing this? That certainly “damages” the impact of the scene quite a big time as they are just random people to me.
How great would it be if I would actually know these women and would really care about them?
Also, that weird nightmare scene with the bad CGI looks just awful.
On the bright side, we have 11(!) women who mask themselves rob a bank, and then unmask themselves afterward!!! The quantity of masks and unmaskings is just awesome. Never seen anything like that.
I also like that they really take their disguises very seriously, most of them are wearing more than one mask or piece of disguise.
The self unmasking in the end is very nice! Of course, I would have wished for some security guards who would be curious to take a peek under these masks…. 😉
I don’t get why they need 11 women to rob that place as normally you have something like 3-5 in most movies.
But ok, I am sure these 11 are connected by some background story….
Well, another fine scene, not as good as the first one, but another nice reveal!
Sadly he is no challenge to her at all after she was stabbed (understandably).
It’s a shame that he never had a real chance to attack her and go for the mask.
But I do like how she unmasks herself and looks at him before he dies.
And the fencing mask is very interesting, you can see her face with the right lighting, but not fully. Never saw fencing masks being used like that in a movie or TV show.
Again, I recommend watching the whole movie as you only then can understand the background story behind all of that. And you also get more minutes of the masked ladies 😉
I did find two interesting posters for this one:

I especially like the one on the left. Sexy Bella Thorne in leather + two masked leather-clad persons in the background.
It’s a little odd that both folks in the background look like women….if you ask me. One of the burglars is a guy, so is he not on the poster? That would mean that Bella Thorne is on that picture twice! Once in the foreground without a mask and once in the background with a mask and slightly different clothes.
Quite odd, but I am 90% sure that there are three women on it.
And even more oddly, Bella Thorne is twice on the other poster as well! And the guy isn’t there as well.
Really, really odd!
And the wound on the woman looks quite fake and she doesn’t get a wound like that in the movie….even she does get hurt on that side of the face.
Actually, this movie was featured in one of the earliest posts on this blog back in 2013.
Some weeks ago I still thought that it actually still was on the blog, but it wasn’t anymore….and honestly, I am not sure what exactly happened.
However, I was planning to make a new post about it. A nice guy recommended me a store that actually has a DVD of this rare movie quite a long time ago.
Finally, I bought the DVD, even it was rather expensive in total, but hey….I just had to have this one in the best quality available.
So, why this movie is so interesting?
Because it’s about a gang of female robbers! They are wearing full masks in two rather short scenes and then are running around in sexy smoothskin wetsuits and masks for nearly 20 minutes!
So again, it would partially fit my Frogwoman blog as well, and I will make a post on it as well, with an additional short scene. More on that later.
So, let’s start this post with the two scenes where you can see the original team of 3 women!

And here is the video:
Yeah, two good scenes with effectively masked women! Really well disguised!
As later on, they are dressing like men to fool anyone who might see them. In a later video, you see who they even hide their “twins”.
The unmaskings are rather disappointing for me since they are cheating big time! I guess the director or someone else was concerned that their hair would look messy if they just pull these masks off. So they got their hair done nicely and held their masks close to their faces and removed them from then on so it would look more or less like they would pull the masks off their heads in that scene. 🙁
I certainly wouldn’t have done it and would have shown their unmaskings without any cuts or tricks.
Perhaps some folks might have been surprised that there are women under these masks, even I think you certainly can see that in close-ups on their masked faces, that these aren’t men…if you look at the “exposed” eye sections.
So, I divided the long hotel robbery scene into 4 videos to keep these short.
That way the chances are better that they can stay on Youtube.
3 more women have joined the team to make the big heist that they have planned.
A big hotel on a rather remote island is their target!

And here are the videos:
Well, that was quite a robbery! I just love the idea to have 6 women in wetsuits and (modified) scuba masks robbing a hotel!
The preparations pay off and the job goes pretty smoothly for the most part.
Of course, my highlight is the ending where the two guys sneak up on her and then try to unmask her! That is so sexy. The way she desperately struggles to keep her mask on is really well done.
She knows exactly that she would be finished if they manage to yank that scuba mask off. Yeah, she would still have her hood on, but they would see a face that they then could describe to the cops.
Of course, the scene should be a little longer, but ok, it’s a rather AWESOME scene anyhow 🙂
Luckily they are wearing sexy black wetsuits that are appropriate for such a nightly action.
You can find an additional scene on my other blog!
