A solid juvenile delinquent movie from the drive-in days
A classic slice of ’70s exploitation, which mixes in all the familiar ingredients from gang movies – drugs, prostitution, street wars, cat fights, double-crosses, and drive-by shootings – into one satisfying whole. Directed by the almost legendary Jack Hill as one of his last movies, this is a fast-paced and sometimes thrilling movie with plenty of treachery, name-calling, back-stabbing, and violence to recommend it to fans. It’s also one of Quentin Tarantino’s favourites, which is why it got a re-release through his Rolling Thunder label. The acting from the mostly unknown young cast is very good, with each of the (mainly female) cast convincing in their roles, particularly Robbie Lee and Joanne Nail as the two rival antagonists who battle for control of the gang.
During the course of its running time, SWITCHBLADE SISTERS packs in a stay at a prison ruled over by a perverted lesbian guard; a shoot-out at an ice rink which makes excellent use of its location; an incredible street battle with Molotov cocktails, armoured vehicles, explosions and machine-gun battles in the street, and to top it all off a sickeningly violent cat fight between two switchblade-wielding gang members. The film does an admirable job of maintaining tension throughout and building up the suspense towards the finale, as evil eye patch-wearing Patch stirs up trouble and leads things to a final showdown. The police can’t believe their eyes, and neither will the viewer! A solid juvenile delinquent movie from the drive-in days, the kind of which they don’t make any longer, sadly.
