A mute Russian girl infiltrates Toronto's underground sex trade to avenge the death of her sister.
Oh, the stupid shit I buy when wandering around Walmart at 11:30 at night. I randomly saw Sweet Karma for $7.50 and a giant wave of "Oh, what the hell!" washed over me. That feeling happens too often.
- The picture quality on this DVD is awful. The film is gritty as hell (I'm sure that was intended), but it's so bad that I had a hard time seeing what was going on during the night scenes (which is like 90% of the movie). It's a little annoying.
- The story is about a woman (named Karma, GET IT?!), who is hell bent on avenging her sister's death. The sister took a "cleaning" job in Canada to help support Karma…
Karma follows a mute Russian woman to Toronto, searching for her missing sister and seeking revenge on the people who trafficked her into a new life in the local sex trade. Well paced, and boasting a fine performance from Shera Bechard in the lead role, it’s a fairly typical exploitation/revenge flick which does the job despite its low production values.
This film was fine until the last 10 minutes where they decided to ruin it with a shitty ending... It was completely unbelievable. Just one phone call home would have prevented this entire film being made, and that's what destroyed it for me.
The rest of the film was completely believable, which is why I'm so disappointed.
I'm only rating this a 2 due to the build up being so well presented. Had the ending been better, it would have been a 3 and a half...
