riled said:
Women in the two lead roles have lots of dialogue, and yet most of what they talk about is men (men who were violent towards them, men they killed, etc.). It's a faux-feminist revenge fantasy that's absolutely male-oriented. There are some small exceptions that make it pass the test - for example when Dorothy asks Petula to take her injured dog to the vet.
