Jesse (2014/Arc DVD)

Picture: D Sound: C Extras: D Film: C+

Jesse (2014) is a female cop that prefers to shoots first and asks questions later., but when her brother gets mixed up with the mob and goes missing, she takes it personal and wants to find out what happened to him. But as she investigates further into her brother's disappearance, she is suddenly finds herself in the middle of a mob war and is ordered off the case by her chief. Then... she's not the type to side down or follow orders because Jesse (Stephanie Finochio) is not your average sweet cupcake in a uniform, she is your ass kicking, swearing, drunkard that could out drink any man.

And when it comes to justice, she isn't afraid of bending a rules (or breaking a few bones on that matter). She is dirty but she gets the job done, yet not as bad as the thieves, crooks, and bent cops (but close). And in a town where there is no honor among thieves (or police for that matter), all rules go out the window. After the mob steals her brother's life insurance and sends her mom to the hospital, she takes it personal ...with a sawed-off shotgun.

This film reminded me a lot like Die Hard except with a female version of John McClaine and a smaller budget. Sadly, the main character was not as hot as the picture on cover. The acting was mostly 2nd rate actors with a lot of one liners. Armand Assante and Eric Roberts show up, but to no avail. The anamorphically enhanced image is just plain awful and lossy Dolby Digital very, very average. Extra includes digital copy.
