Nude Nuns with Big Guns (2010)

Sister Without Mercy

Down in Mexico parts of the Catholic Church have become part of gang leader Chavo's (David Castro) drug business with the nuns used to process and package the drugs for trades which take place in the middle of nowhere. When one of the trades goes wrong Chavo takes Sister Sarah (Asun Ortega) in payment for the missing drugs, keeping her as a drugged sex slave in one of his dens. When one of Chavo's men takes pity on her and puts her through detox Sarah believes she receives a message from God, to kill all the suckers who almost killed her be it those masquerading as the church or Chavo and his gang

Let me tell you what director Joseph Guzman was probably aiming for with "Nude Nuns with Big Guns", he was probably aiming to emulate Robert Rodriguez's Mexican movies, the ones with a gun totting good guy in a bad town. But on top of that he also draws on Rodriguez's "From Dusk Till Dawn" with its biker and exploitation side. Now I would say Guzman has got pretty close visually as Chavo and his gang look like they would be at home in a Rodriguez movie and Guzman also chucks in elements such as a camera angle, the colouring to the name of a night club which all seem to scream out I want to be a Rodriguez movie.

But whilst visually Guzman may be able to come close to emulating Rodriguez he can't deliver a story in the same way and so what you get in "Nude Nuns with Big Guns" is lots of nudity and then sporadic stylized violence. Now both are reminiscent of Rodriguez as well but without the entertaining story telling it ends up lacking that important element to make it more than just a wannabee movie. If it wasn't for the fact that Guzman delivers a stylish movie "Nude Nuns with Big Guns" would be unwatchable.

What this all boils down to is that "Nude Nuns with Big Guns" whilst a stylish movie is not a very good one and it is a case that if Guzman's style wasn't reminiscent of Robert Rodriguez it would make this movie unwatchable.
