Nude Nuns With Big Guns
This sister is one bad mother!
Upon taking her vows to become a nun, Sister Sarah is abused, brainwashed and drugged into submission by the corrupt clergy. On the verge of death from a lethal dose of drugs, Sister Sarah receives a message from GOD telling her to take vengeance on all those who did her wrong. Armed with God's will and an arsenal of big guns, she dispenses Judgment Day on her former tormentors. When the church hires the merciless motorcycle gang the "Los Muertos" to track down and kill her they soon realize that this SISTER IS ONE BAD MOTHER.
Not as fucking awesome as the title suggests.
"I'm gonna nail you harder than they nailed Jesus to the cross."
Watching this film is like watching some cheap knock-off of a Robert Rodriguez movie. It had the feel of one, but none of the charm.
I also have to admit, I was a little disappointed in the title. Sure there were plenty of nude nuns in this film and there were nuns with big guns, but I don't ever recall both at the same time (except one very briefly at the end).
Having said that though, this was definitely a fun watch for a mindless action/titty movie. If you've got nothing better to do on a Sunday morning, why not spend it watching a nun movie?
Whilst the film delivers the nude nuns and big guns of its evocative title there is a distinct lack of fun to be had in this exploitation flick. Instead it is a sleazy, but never shocking, procession of bare breasts, poorly choreographed sequences of bloody vengeance and the obligatory scenes of lesbian sex.
The film fails to tell a compelling story, throwing too many forgettable characters into the mix, and relying solely on the title to attract an audience. Only David Castro as the leader of a biker gang seems to realise he is in a silly exploitation movie and has a bit of fun with his exaggerated performance. There have been a lot of bad modern exploitation flicks and Nude Nuns with Big Guns is another to add to the list.
Finals week has made me do terrible things
1 Star for a wacky title that makes me chuckle! I love how it rolls off my tongue :-)
1 Star for gratuitous grindhouse style sex and violence against nuns (From an Ex Catholic who felt the wrath of the ruler)!
Movie 3 of the Evening of Bad Taste:
After the two Japanese splatter movies we went for the most downloaded movie in history...Nude Nuns with Big Guns (you may guess why it is one of the most downloaded movies...)
For me it was the second viewing of this nunsploitation grindhouse revenge flick, and yes it still remains bad but in a good way. Viewing it together with a couple of beers we had a lot of fun with this.
Clearly the scriptwriters needed to get something off their chest or either they simply don't like nuns.
This is a review from an old blog I used to write for, I want all my reviews in one place on Letterboxd!
Things sure have started to slow down here on The Movie Goer so its time to turn around my lackluster attempt to be a film critic and give everyone a glimpse at a seriously awesome little flick I was fortunate to see (it was the world premier even!) at the Arizona Underground Film Festival last year. I mentioned in a previous post about the film festival that Nude Nuns was one of the most bad-ass films I have seen on the big screen and after watching it a second time I still stand my ground and would…
As the name suggest, a girl dressed up like a nun, ready to take revenge with her big guns. This is an overwhelmingly stupid film. This is a kind of film that believes that nudity, overdose vengeance, drug selling and a biker gang can make up for the lack of story. For some moments, i thought, it's just a porn film with a little story.
Huh! They call it 'Nunsploitation Thriller' film. What kind of genre is that?...
In the final scene, director ended the film with an idea for a sequel. But Mr. Director (Joseph Guzman), please end this here. No need to make such another film.
Acting : 2 out of 5
Direction : 1 out of 5
It was on TV so why not?
Watched on Netflix Instant
I like nudie movies, nunsploitation films and biker flicks, with a title like this how can you fail! Tell us Joseph Guzman, how did you fail so bad. The story was weak, the production value weaker and the acting, well I blame you Guzman. Actually the plot is actually your standard revenge film so I'm a bit lost how you screwed this all up, it's just such a bland film with so much potential exploitation gold wasted, if you had spent just a little less time and money on the naked lesbians (my god am I really saying this?) and a little more time focused on telling the story you could have been my new hero!
I honestly don't know what to say about this film. The first five minutes sets it all up. If you can get that far and not have turned it off, then the rest of the film will probably be to your liking.
The director, Joseph Guzman obviously has big issues with the Catholic Church. Issues so big that this film should have been called "Nude Nuns With Big Guns who have big issues with the Catholic Church." I was really surprised no one "fornicated" or was sacrificed on a church altar. Maybe they're saving that visual treat for the sequel... And I'll probably watch it.
I hate to drag out that old cliché but I do think this is one…
It's full of despicable characters doing despicable things without the sense of fun that the films it is emulating had. That said, I still quite like it. Make of that what you will.
Nudity? Yes, plenty. Guns, ditto. Yet somehow this charmless, witless, thoughtless, crass and stupid waste of time had no redeeming features. Might have made a good 10 minute short if it was 81 minutes shorter and less shit.
Its a bad copycat of rodriguez bad movie, but this movie is even worst. You can hear the filmmakers rip-off the grindhouse soundtrack in this movie. Every character in this movie in this movie are unlikeable. The more I type, the more i hate this movie
