Fit to Kill is ever so slightly better than the previous entry, Hard Hunted, as the humor worked a tad more and there weren’t as many slow moments compared some of the other movies in this series.

Mill Creek Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post.
The opinions I share are my own.

THE MOVIE — 2.75/5

Plot Synopsis: Special Agents Donna Hamilton (DONA SPEIR) and Nicole Justin (ROBERTA VASQUEZ), along with others in the organization, are entangled in a twisted revenge scheme in an international game of high-carat tug-of-war. But double agents and diamond decoys are no match for this dynamic duo. Baring lethal charms and super-tech weapons, the voluptuous crime fighters outwit their old enemy Martin Kane (R.J. MOORE) to unravel the mystery of the lost Alexa stone – and bring the real villains to their knees.

Quick Hit Review: One of the better in the Sidaris series, Fit to Kill basically follows the same formula with a thin “plot” intermixed with awkwardly filmed soft-core (and that’s being generous) sex scenes, plus some bad dialogue spoken by actors who cannot act, which I suppose is why there might be a following for these movies. Still, this one had some decent good-bad moments along with inane/stupidly absurd (yet also fun) action scenes and the amount of boring or dull scenes were kept to a minimum it would seem.

On the plus side, I kind of like actress Julie Strain — who sadly, according to Wikipedia, is suffering from advanced dementia due to a fall — as an (inept) assassin and Roberta Vasquez is still my favorite amongst the returning cast. The others are more of the same; lovely as they are and bless them for trying, but none of them have the right comedic timing to make for an all around great comedy.



This release comes with a Digital Copy from movieSpree. As with the previous releases, this comes with an Introduction (1:57) by Andy Sidaris, an Audio Commentary with Writer-Director Sidaris, a Behind the Scenes (39:09) featurette and Trailers for all of Sidaris’ films, including Fit to Kill.


VIDEO – 3.75/5

Fit to Kill arrives on Blu-ray as part of the Andy Sidaris collection Mill Creek has been releasing over the past year or so. The 1080p high-definition transfer is presented with a 1.78 widescreen aspect ratio and unlike Hard Hunted, the other Sidaris release the same date, this one does look a tad better. Detail is sharp and while there were a few scenes washed out due to how Sidaris shot it on location, not to mention some specs and other film damage, the colors in other scenes were fairly vibrant. The natural film grain for the most part has been retained.

AUDIO – 3.75/5

As with the other Sidaris movies, the included DTS-HD Master Audio Stereo track is more of the same: dialogue more often than not was fine but the cheap or amateurish sound design does come through as some of the audio is a bit muffled during certain scenes. Action sequences were at least okay but nothing spectacular.


OVERALL – 3../5

Fit to Kill is ever so slightly better than the previous entry, Hard Hunted, as the humor worked a tad more and there weren’t as many slow moments compared some of the other movies in this series. The Blu-ray includes respectable video and audio transfers alongside an okay set of features.
