Why watch this film?
If 'Bela Vingança' invokes a reworking of rape revenge films, 'Asking For It' goes down the same path, using young women. In this production, a girl is sexually assaulted and meets The Cherry Bombers, a group of vigilante women specialized in vengeance. It is a good premise for the movie, but it is not well developed, reducing men to toxic people and women to traumatized victims who resort to violence and intimidation. This, combined with a lack of character development, makes it difficult for the viewer to immerse themselves, creating a distance that is hard to relate to. Despite all this, 'Asking For It' has the purpose of denouncing sexual harassment, which is very important and valid.
After a small town waitress is sexually assaulted on a date, she meets Regina and Beatrice and is recruited into their vigilante group of badass women. Together they strive to take down a society overpowered by gangs of corrupt men and seek the ultimate revenge while getting their own version of justice.
