In the first episode of the Best Friend Sex Trilogy, "Gun Crazy," we meet the enigmatic Bad Kitty, who fancies herself an expert on the subject of guns. She is an expert at self-defence, and one day gets an unfortunate run-in with some street thugs, only to come across the Prince of Swords, who (apparently to his surprise) decides to teach her about guns in his own professional way. As the plot progresses we see our heroine improve in her knowledge of guns and prepare herself for a showdown with a deadly gunfight between the Prince of Swords and the T. For once, I can't remember watching a movie so that I didn't feel like I was supposed to be watching a TV show.
The plot itself is cool enough, although the whole thing seemed somewhat forced, as if it were not intended to be taken seriously. I don't mean to say that the movie is a bad movie; all I am saying is that it could have been so much better if this movie had stayed in the realm of guns for the sake of being purely a movie, rather than a romantic drama, and what the hell was the point of the confrontation between the King of Swords and the T. As for the characters, I really don't know why they had to be there; the story didn't need another pair of entirely arrogant, pompous, old school movie stars in a tag team.
After the encounter with the Prince of Swords, it seems that one of the Princesses of Champions appears at the court of the King of Swords, along with a knight who is known to her as Alice. When this happens, the Prince of Swords decides to get rid of the T, and this causes the Princess of Champions to go out into the kingdom of Men (though this doesn't quite make sense, as she has a kingdom in her own right). Both of these things happen, and unfortunately the movie turns into quite a train wreck as a result.
In addition to the comic strip action that we see, it's quite a good thing that themovie never commits itself to being anything other than a movie. Instead, it's more like a personal story told in a neat little clip show format. The characters seem to think that guns akimbo makes them like movie stars, but that couldn't be further from the truth.
There is also some pretty pointless plot development, but this is mostly because the movie spends too much time on the bits where our main characters argue about the nature of their relationship. Again, this is very convenient and almost makes it a two-hour movie, but the story doesn't need it and the script doesn't work anyway.
I do like the idea of the girl from the city of Champions going out on a quest with the warrior, who claims to be the Prince of Swords, in order to learn more about him. It's a nice touch that she comes across as a bit of a maverick, and it's easy to get behind the character.
As for the guns akimbo, I'll leave you to decide whether or not it's a good movie. It's not like the movies are all bad, but it does seem like the actors are trying too hard, and the concept is silly.
Regardless, if you're a fan of guns akimbo and similar shows, this is an odd little movie that is worth a look. It is enjoyable, but it's not too unique or original.
