Together, the two embark on a gruesome killing spree, terrorizing and brutally murdering not just their attackers, but any man who gets in their way. However, after a wild weekend of retaliation, the friendship between the girls shifts into a dangerous obsession, and their perverse game becomes a desperate struggle for Shae to maintain control against Lu’s deadly and seductive influence.

The Verdict:

Revenge flicks are what they are. They’re simple, sometimes brutally violent, and are reflective of their quality overall. A good one will fly by, and provide a good fun experience, and a bad one is dreadful. Girls Against Boys is at times in the middle of both of those. There’s some great performances, the action and violence is ok. There just isn’t anything too spectacular about it. The commentary is informative and because of that, and the alright nature of the film, QUEUE IT
