I just watched STILETTO, a film about a female assassin who is killing members of a ruthless criminal organization. One of her victims survives, a crime boss whom she shared a past with but her betrayal breaks his heart, so he hires a crooked homicide cop to track her down before the police get to her.

I read nothing but negative reviews about this, so I am the first to write a positive review! It's a very good film...if you like violence! It is brutal, I mean you get savage beatings, lots of stabbings people getting shot (including one brilliant scene!) and best of all it's all on-screen.

The acting is fine by all, I really don't know what people expect from a film, if you think you like the sound of it going by my write up, I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as I did.

I had to write this after reading a few reviews. Especially the guy who says he quit watching after 30 Minutes. What do you want a Oscar performance. This movie is better than a lot of the trash with bigger names in it. This movie is non stop action. Very brutal killings done really well. Even a couple ways I've never seen before and I've seen a lot. I just don't want anyone not to see it due to one idiot. What don't you like revenge flicks? Lack of adventure? Sit back and enjoy something different. So what if the story isn't A-1. The short attention span of most will be consumed with this one. A lot of familiar faces. Check it out. Not for the faint at heart or those with a weak stomach

Stiletto kicks ass. It's the chick from La Femme Nikita up against the hilarious gangsters from Ghost Dog with the violent special effects of Friday The 13th thrown in (in particular, a scene involving an electric sander and another involving a tire iron had me exclaiming "Whoa!" out loud). Our hero goes on a real I Spit On Your Grave rampage against an all star cast of bad boys. This one is not for the children. Every other word starts with F and every other minute someone is getting murdered in inventive ways. But for the adults, it's a whole lot of fun, especially because, even though it serves as a parody of the genre, it isn't resorting to any slapstick or forced campiness. I liked it. If you like gangster movies and horror movies, this will be your cup of tea.

After watching hundreds of films, you almost know what's going to happen next and often becomes somewhat predictable. Not so with this film. The minute you recognize the main movie star and his acting is par, you can sense the movie is going to be interesting. That's what this film is all about. It was entitled 'The Velvet Spider' 's abroad, but " Stiletto " in America and tells the story of a vengeful female assassin (Stana Katic) who believes some mobsters and their leaders are responsible for her sister's death. However, the main gangster is unaware of her assumptions or her quest, is only concern with the recovery of his two million dollars. Although aware of the assassin, he believes a single cop (Paul Sloan) can stop her, if not his top hit men (Michael Biehn and William Forsythe) in his organization will. The movie is exciting, action-packed and strewed with murder, violence killings and general mayhem. The actors in the cast are superb and very convincing. It's not often a director like Nick Vallelomga and a writer like Paul Sloan are teamed to create a gritty film like this one. ****

Just watched Stiletto - great movie. Lots of action. Well known cast -Amanda Brooks is showing all her range - a must see. Think the ensemble cast work really well together. Original revenge story - and you have to wait till the very end to connect the dots. Nice to see Michael Biehn again after an absence for a while. This is the second Villalonga movie i have seen and i like his work. For action lovers its a real treat. Berringer plays a great crime boss - but not in the Italian style. Chemistry between Biehn and Brooks is electric. Amanda Brooks is really hitting her stride. You can feel the anger flowing out. Very convincing in this role.

First of all,There have been many worse films than this.

I did not expect this to be a film to remember, so I was not disappointed.

Years back the studios made this type of film to be shown as the lower half of a double bill, with a 69 minute running time. This film is a fast 99 minutes. It is very violent & bloody, what would you expect with the title. STILETTO.

Truthfully, the main reason I saw this was because of the star Tom Berenger. 20-30 years ago he was a HUNK.(Looking for Mr Goodbar & Platoon were just 2 of his real good films). He is (of course) much older& plays the nasty,mean crime boss, Tom is still good and does hold your interest. The rest of the acting & production values are only fair.

I am not even going to mention the leading lady by name.She is pretty & kills most of the cast,I doubt if she make many films.

If you remember Tom Berenger,& like them very bloody,profane and violent see it.

This seems to be a typical example of the movie industry, trying to push movies that are so bad, I am missing words to describe it.

It had a rating of 8.0 (!!) and a vote-count of 50 when I decided to give it a shot. Meanwhile the rating has gone down, but it still isn't reflecting the "quality" of this C-movie that looks like it's budget was around 50 bucks.

And no, I did not watch it to the end, after 30 minutes of stupid "story" and remarkably bad acting, I could not stand it anymore.

Don't be fooled by hired goons and fan boys, this is not worth watching by any means. It's just utterly bad.

Nuff said ...

Raina (Stana Katic - "Castle", Quantum of Solace)is out for revenge. She takes it in the opening on a former lover (Tom Berenger), who manages to survive only, as he jokes, because of his lifestyle - a big belly! He puts Beck (Paul Sloan) on her tail, but she is hard to catch as she pops up all over the city like Jason, slashing her way through various bad guys, even Tom Sizemore, who imagines himself a player after leaving a group of Nazis who sell crack to teen girls before turning them out.

At the same time, we are seeing Amanda Brooks really do a dance on some others. She & her boyfriend Lee (Michael Biehn - Aliens, The Terminator) have an interesting way of removing tats; some massive gunfights, and lots more deaths.

A good slasher/gangster film.

I was expecting very little from this, given the low rating here, but found myself pleasantly surprised. This is really a much better film than it's being given credit for. There's a depth of characterisation in the script that you don't find in the average B-movie. The cast, too, are well above average. Most of the actors are past-their-prime Hollywood notables who may not earn the big bucks any more but can still turn in a decent performance.

The action sequences are decent and, for the most part, realistic.

I was surprised to discover that the burly cop was actually the writer of the script.

All in all, this is definitely worth a watch.

The movie itself is styled in the late 80's/early 90's B films. The soundtrack is built into the cinematography. Yes!!!! There is a lot of action, a lot of killing but again relatable to the B genre films of past. Sure we have stars (again of the 80's/90's) in Berenger, Sizemore, Biehn and even Russo. It is not a stupendously acted story but has a unique flavor to it. We have a female antagonist who powers the film and others fall flat in their roles. A film to watch if your busy doing something else.

So,I skipped out of the office early today and fired up Showitme.

Wham, the first movie I ran into was just starting. STILETTO. The cast is filled with names and faces you'll immediately recognize. Hey, that makes the movie worth investing a bit of time to begin with.

Plot, who cares to begin with. The movie is dark and dreary with Mob affiliation and peeps getting whacked immediately. Watch it alone with a strong drink or six and in the evening.

Some may say the cast is beyond Over-The-Hill and Has-Beens. Tom Berringer as a Greek is a bit of a stretch; Stana Katic(Canadian) is great as the psycho-chick assassin, bent on revenge and killing anyone(males mostly), related to her anger and pain. Whatever.

The plot is about revenge...blah-blah-blah! I'd watch her cut vegetables. She can be/was seen on ABC's Castle. If you like hot brunettes, this is for you, plot be damned!

I watch a movie to be entertained and escape reality for a couple hours.

The cast of retro/comfortable characters let me do just that. Think Terminator, Platoon, etc.

There's not social lecture, just revenge, blood and advice. I'm only 45 minutes into the movie and I've already sent an email to a slimy acquaintance that can get ANY movie on DVD while it's still in the theater. The acquaintance loved Stiletto too! Preliminary audiences didn't, obviously. And now, back to the movie and another scotch, with Stana of course.

This movie suffers from two problems: the cast is too big and if you don't read the back of the cover, you have no idea why Stana Katic ("Castle") is carving up people with an edged weapon that is too big to be a knife and too small to be a sword.

In a movie this long, you need to focus on the protagonist, the antagonist and the world they live in; everything else just bogs down the story. And in a revenge movie, you need to know why the protagonist is going after people, otherwise it makes it difficult for the audience to root for her.

What saves this movie is a nice little twist at the end and the character of a cop working for the mob; he almost becomes the protagonist because you get to know him a little and sense that while he may be working for the mob, he is not dirty.

All in all, barely worth the price of a rental, but I will keep an eye on the writer--he shows some potential.

Note to the Publicity Department: If you're going to name a movie "Stiletto" and the cover is going to feature an armed woman, she should probably be holding the weapon rather than a pair of guns.

I like violent and brutal movies full of action and dazzling girls. I'm from Serbia and I've to say that Stana Katic is the most beutiful actress in Canada and USA as well. I rated this movie with eight, only because Stana is Serbian girl, but my review can't be positive, because the story isn't about assassins and criminal, but betrayel and revange. Sincerelly, yours Dushan Petrovic from Belgrade, Serbia.

The theme presented in this film has been done repeatedly in the recent past. A svelte young woman believes she has been wronged by her lover, so she seeks revenge upon all who may have been involved. She marks them all for death, and , one by one, she seduces or openly attacks them with a knife (her favorite weapon) or a gun.

The woman, Raina, is a very small thin woman with exotic looks. The film follows her around as she creates mayhem among the underworld baddies who are her targets.

These films are occasionally interesting as a character study of people that most of us would never meet or know. In this case, however, the cast creates a multitude of stereotypes. Performances are wooden and the dialog is stilted. There is no back story to explain how this woman gains her almost supernatural powers of stealth and strength. Her acting is adequate, except for the action scenes where she looks ridiculous.

Although the plot had several twists, I soon knew the how the ending would transpire. Unfortunately, most of the final events were highly improbable and seemed forced.

If you are a fan of "femme fatale" type movies, this may be your cup of tea. It really wasn't mine.

Wickedly violent revenge drama with Tom Berenger as a Greek crime boss who, along with other people, is being hunted by a young Russian girl who used to be his mistress. The whys and who's of the affair take the full running time to unravel so I won't say more than that. What I will say is that this is a mean and nasty film with violence exploding usually in ways we least expect it, in a manner that is really in your face. This is a movie that makes you frequently sit up and go "whoa". Well stocked with a fantastic cast of character actors (William Forsythe, Michel Beihn, James Russo, Tom Sizemore among others) this is as solid a "B" crime film as I've seen recently. (and I mean B as in the classic definition of a B film, the sort that was carefully crafted to play on a double feature, that was made with care and not just thrown together). If there is any real flaw, or if there is going to be any point that may trouble some viewers it's that the film is very complex, or at least it doesn't reveal anything until the stand in for the audience, the cop working for Berenger, finds anything out. This makes for several scenes that seem like they are coming for left field, when in reality they are not. (I'm also sure that the end will leave some people annoyed, but I'm not one of them, I think it works). Worth a bucket of popcorn and a soda for anyone wanting a dark little crime film to "brighten" up their evening.

This ultra violent female revenge film does not reveal the motivation for all of Stana Katric's carnage until it's almost over, so what precedes the revelation seems like random nonsense. If you are into this for the cast, beware that Tom Berenger is corpulent with dyed blonde hair. Tom Sizemore actually gives the best performance, expounding priceless dialect inside a strip joint, but his part is small. The movie has many problems, confusing and meaningless script, mostly bad acting, and zero likable characters. The ending is especially weak and a ridiculous conclusion to everything that precedes it. Very definitely, a movie to be avoided. - MERK

This has bad acting from the first second on...It is about a Greek crime bosses ex who decides to kill him and his organisation with two cops hot on her tail...

I felt the acting lacked convincing...Kelly Hu who is very pretty seemed to let herself down...while her Co-star did a very bad imitation of Keanu Reeves....

I found the whole idea of the Greek crime family being the top dogs laughable...And the gangster boss made things worse with his whole 'macho' acting...

Bad idea. Bad film.

I waited a long time before actually watching this movie because of all the negative reviews, but I'm a big fan of Castle and therefore really wanted to watch something with Stana Katic in so I gave in to temptation. I must say I'm pleasantly surprised! Yes, it's violent but not in a gross way, it's all done with a purpose, it's not a splatter movie. I was only really chocked by one scene to be honest. Somehow I think it's more violent with all those gun shot movies.

I advice you to watch this movie! It does have a good story behind all the killing! There's some really interesting characters and you do feel for Stana Katic's character Raina.

Tiny spoiler;

Her actions might seem random at first but she does have a reason.

A Russian immigrant's sister is raped and brutalized by a gang of Neo Nazi scum(Tom Sizemore and James Franco are two of them)and she believes her wealthy Greek mobster lover, Virgil Valados(Tom Berenger)is responsible for covering it up(Dominique Swain is a hooker who was there when the poor girl was gang banged and tortured). This immigrant, Raina(Stana Katic), attempts to kill Virgil and almost does so, also running away with two million dollars from a safe..this means someone within Virgil's organization helped Raina out because she didn't know the combination to the safe. Raina begins hunting down all the human dirtbags who participated in her sister's mistreatment(found in a garbage dumpster after three days, the experience leaving her mentally destroyed beyond repair, her face scarred from a bottle broken across it), stabbing each one in the heart with a special knife she carries. Michael Biehn is Virgil's loyal enforcer, Lee, with a nasty streak, who has been locked up for a while, having returned to help his boss find Raina. Virgil calls on a dirty cop, Beck(Paul Sloan), who owes him for helping him keep his brother out of harm's way, to bring him Raina, drawing the ire of Lee who believes he(and his devious English girlfriend junkie Penny, played with a Cockney accent by Amanda Brooks)can do the job himself sufficiently. Meanwhile, Virgil's brother Alex(William Forsythe)might know more about this entire situation than he's revealing. Alex and Lee are always at each other's throats, mainly it's because both want to be Virgil's closest confident. While Beck looks for Raina, he must somehow keep his partner, Hanover(Kelly Hu)in the dark, not an easy task. Virgil's wife, Sylvia(Diane Venora)knows that her husband is deeply in love with Raina and this definitely ruins their marriage.

Nick Vallelonga's Stilleto is quite a showcase for the beauty Stana Katic(who would not longer after show up in the James Bond film Quantum of Solace)and essentially follows her as she kills a hell of a lot of people. Stilleto is without a doubt a quintessential rape revenge crime thriller, except in this case, Raina is assassinating those behind her sister's rape and torture. Stilleto is full of unpleasant, unsavory characters and I think the audience for this movie will have no problem siding with Raina as she buries her knife in the chests of each and every one of these rotten apples(although, she also uses a gun when necessary). This movie is a real blood bath as it features savage violence and cruelty..we go into an underbelly and are presented with real trash. The plot reveals a mastermind who had orchestrated everything, which does eventually become known after a carnage of dead bodies is left behind Raina. Betrayal, manipulation, backstabbing, and distrust all play a hand in the way Stilleto shapes itself over the running time. Poor DB Sweeney gets worked over real good by Lee and Penny as they fish for information, thinking he knows who was behind the robbery(his face pummeled into unrecognizable twisted flesh, his arm torn apart by a sand blaster). A crowbar is rammed into a victim's throat(and through the skull), a bullet blows a hole through a face, machine guns and pistols are used on a consistent basis considering the lifestyles of those involved in this movie's plot, and, as mentioned above, Raina takes delight in slowly pressing her knife into the chests of those who have forever damaged her beloved sister. Once again, Stilleto is a movie which takes us into a world of dangerous and sleazy people, and these low lives die one by one for their roles in a heinous act that, to be honest, justifies vengeance..not an advocate of violence, but you certainly can see why Raina responds the way she does. Beck is pulled into this and decides to help Raina, really wanting her to get out of town. Beck's investigation might turn up evidence establishing secrets yet unraveled.

Raina is a annoying and not a very likable girl on the hunt to avenge and uncover the truth about her sister's kidnapping. When she discovers that her former lover, mob boss Virgil Vadalos, and his associates are directly responsible, she is out for vengeance. The thing is, I just didn't care for any of the characters, especially Raina the protagonist. In fact when it started to get closer to the end of the film, I just wanted her to die. This is a pretty bad revenge movie plain and simple. The twist was even predictable and don't even care for it at all what so ever, it is weak. It's a boring revenge flick, there is plenty of better films of this type of genre not even really worth the price of rental. The cover seemed a bit promising, but don't judge this film by it's cover cause it sucks.

2.8/10
CopamHuk

CopamHuk

I'm gonna sum this up so you can easily decide if you want to watch it

1st Cinematography is bad. Sometimes it looks like a home movie. But it doesn't destroy the movie

2nd Story is crap. This woman goes on a revenge killing spree because of what happened to her sister. But its so poorly put in that it just doesn't seem to fit, and you just don't feel the emotion. The story tries to twist at the end I guess but it fails.

3rd The ending is just stupid.

4th This is whats good. Well... there are a couple of ass shots. There is some tension between the characters of the gangs which pretty much holds the movie together. The action sequences are pretty good.

The thing is, it's a movie you can enjoy, but you aren't going to completely enjoy it in the end, and your not going to want to watch it again.

Stiletto is a brash, ballsy love letter to schit kicking, macho 80' action flicks that fires on booze soaked, bullet ridden cylinders to bring us a pulpy tale of evil gangsters, bent cops, sleazy criminals and the deadly Eastern European femme fatale that ties them all together in the web of violence, corruption and vengeance they have stirred up. They have also stirred up her fury as well, and she descends upon them one by with the forces of hell, and the titular stiletto blade, which gets rammed, sliced and slashed across many a deserving limb or neck. Her name is Raina, and she's portrayed by underrated vixen Stana Katic, who most will know from the TV show Castle, or 24. She's got charisma to spare, and gives the classic female assassin role a careful depth and smouldering hurt that fuels her bloody rampage and gives her brutality a justified edge. The rest of the cast is dominated by the dudes, and director Nick Vallellonga lovingly peppers his roster with an unbelievable handful of iconic 80's and 90's action stars. No throwaway cameos here either; each one is given a fleshed out, memorable slice of noirish material to chomp down on, and each one creates a delightfully nasty rogue to add to their gallery of characters. Raina used to be the the moll of shady Greek mobster Virgil Vadalos (Tom Berenger, drenched in tan lotion, adorned with chains and growling like a disgruntled bulldog. Great work). He has betrayed her in some unforgivable way, unbeknownst to the audience. She near fatally wounds him, and he goes into hiding, sending a corrupt detective (Paul Sloan) and two of his trusted enforcers to flush her out and bring her to him. William Forsythe, in all his sarcastic, blustering glory, plays slick Alex, a cunning Russian thug with more up his sleeve than is laid back personality may suggest. Michael Biehn, in my favourite performance of the film, plays Lee, a psychopathic hothead with a live wire British girlfriend (Amanda Brooks on overdrive) and a penchant for extreme interrogation techniques (there's a scene involving D.B. Sweeney and an electric sander that will make you cringe). Biehn has a colourful career playing energetic live wires, and this is no slouch. He's a happily violent, unapologetically profane, contemptible prick, and lights up the screen with fabulous nihilistic energy. Raina also gets tangled up with other lowlifes and associates in her search for retribution, including scummy night clubbing Tom Sizemore, and the leader of a neo nazi skinhead biker clan played with scary, coked up rage by veteran thespian James Russo, making a limited appearance count by flooding the screen with violent threats and intense glowering. There's also great work from gorgeous Kelly Hu as another cop, Diane Venora from Heat as Berenger's long suffering wife, and underrated Dominique Swain as well. People will undoubtedly whine about misogyny with this one, and hell I wouldn't disagree with them. The male characters are a scary bunch of amoral, bottom feeding motherf____ers who don't think twice about the kind of trauma they inflict on girls. But you know what? Welcome to the real world, where things like that exist, and are reflected in artistic expression, like movies. It's present in the story here, and although necessarily dwelled upon, as dictated by the genre, it's never glorified, however ugly it gets. That's not to say it's completely in bad taste. Hell, the narrative is about one single woman carving a swath of carnage through the men that committed atrocities against her. So there. There's sympathy and feeling to it as well, albeit briefly, as the flashback sequence where we see what happened to her (I won't spoil anything) is handled with care and given space for it to really hit us. That being said, the majority of the movie is an excessively violent, over the top, near cartoonish homage to the hard boiled crime genre. And I'm not kidding about the violence. Some of the damage inflicted rivals anything that you'd see in a Saw movie, and will leave some gagging. But I'd expect nothing less from a film that attempts this kind of 'feel'. Go all the way, or don't even bother trying, I say. There's some nice twists as well, some real thought put into the deceptions, betrayals and arcs of these characters. Katic anchors it like a streamlined feline of righteous anger and uses her natural dark beauty as a deceptive ruse to lure the hard bitten scumbags orbiting her to their certain deaths at the hands of her skill, training and pure hatred. Anyone looking for a down and dirty, bloody bit of vengeful crime fun that makes Kill Bill look mild in comparison owes it to themselves to give this one a try.

Don't listen to any of these negative reviews posted about this so far. They are very wrong, If you are into crime or revenge films you will love this. It has a Kill Bill & Thriller: A Cruel Picture vibe with a female assassin taking revenge on the ones who wronged her in the past in a different setting & different motivations obviously but you get the point. Anyone see the new TV show "Castle"? Well this features the co-star of it Stana Katic (24, Feast of Love, Quantum of Solace, The Librarian 3, & The Spirit) as the lead character looking for vengeance. Writer Paul Sloan co-stars as the cop stuck in the middle of this mess. Tom Berenger (Big Chill, Platoon, Major League 1/2, Sniper Trilogy, Training Day, & Detective) chews up the scenery as the main villain with henchmen Michael Biehn (Terminator, Aliens, The Abyss, Navy Seals, Tombstone, The Rock, Magnificent Seven, & Planet Terror) & William Forsythe (Halloween, Devil's Rejects, Deuce Bigalow, Gotti, The Rock, Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead, Out for Justice, Dick Tracy, Extreme Prejudice, & Raising Arizona) helping him control the chaos caused by Katic. Plus this film has an amazing supporting cast with Diane Venora (Heat, The Insider, & The Jackal), Kelly Hu (X2, No Way Back, & Friday the 13th 8: Jason Takes Manhattan), James Russo (Beverly Hills Cop, Extremities, Dangerous Game, & Donnie Brasco), Tom Sizemore (Heat, Point Break, Passenger 57, True Romance, Natural Born Killers, Witness to the Mob, & Saving Private Ryan), Dominique Swain (Face/Off, Lolita, Out of Season, & Alpha Dog), Tony Lip (The Sopranos, Donnie Brasco, Goodfellas, Pope of Greenwich Village, & Year of the Dragon), D.B. Sweeney (Eight Men Out, Spawn, & Jericho), Robert R. Shafer (Bob from TV's The Office), David Proval (Star Chamber, Monster Squad, Mean Streets, Romeo Is Bleeding, Shawshank Redemption, Four Rooms, Smokin' Aces, & The Sopranos) plus two former Leatherfaces in cameo roles R.A. Mihailoff (Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III, Trancers III, Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings, & Fallen Angels) & Andrew Bryniarski (Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake/TCM: The Beginning, Black Mask 2, Any Given Sunday, Higher Learning, Street Fighter, Batman Returns, & Hudson Hawk). Highly recommended, Check it out ASAP....

The story isn't so bad, if unoriginal. There are quite a few good actors. There are some interesting and funny parts in there. Most of the time violence is not too much (these are violent people).

But, it simply fails. Stana Katic is not a good enough actress to pull this through, Tom Berenger tries, but is mostly out of character and other good actors seem to not have their heart into it. There are way too many silly things in the story for it to hold up (at one point, Stana Katic overpowers a man twice here size in a simple power struggle, at another point she goes into a "no thinking" attack on four guys, while up to that point she was doing a lot of thinking and planning to single out a guy away from everyone else...).

Given that there are _much_ worse movies out there, this is an OK watch if you like violent movies with a few funny/interesting parts and a female protagonist. But if you're not a fan of such films, you're better of with something else.

Seeing the cast list for this, is almost like a "who-is-who" of a lot of known bit part players from the 80s! Really good actors too. If I'd started listing them IMDb would tell me, that I have no more room to write an actual review. Suffice to say, that whether you know those people or not, they do deliver.

Whose not fully delivering, is Katic! Which is a shame, because her role is the crucial one. And while I love looking at her (even while or when does horrible things), I have to admit, that she cannot carry this movie as she should. The action on the other hand is nicely filmed, the plot/story is decent enough too. With a better lead, this could've been a winner! As it stands, it just is above average (and still cut by a lot of minutes in Germany, a version I refused to watch, so the rating and review goes for the uncut version)
