Act of Violence Reviews:

This film is often confused with her 1974 film "A Situation of Rape". This is 1979, and instead of being raped she get's the crap beaten out of her during a violent mugging. Liz plays a TV reporter who is a tad bit on the liberal side. She ruffles a several feathers with her mission of view about rich girls wearing fur coats asking to be mugged. AHA! Then she herself is mugged and what a difference a day makes. Overnight we see her transformed into a paranoid, conservative crime victim who is left mentally and physically scarred. She even goes on the news with a rambling editorial about crime that p***es her station and viewers off even more than the previous pieces about sympathy for criminal offenders. Liz is pretty as always, even a better actress than most folks think of her. This film is a far cry from "Bewitched". San Francisco never looked more scary than it does in this movie. A tad bit sensationalized but still an enjoyable film that holds your attention from begin to finish. Sean Frye is especially nice as her son, as well as the rest of the cast. Not quite as nice as "A Situation of Rape" but a close second. I trust this film is on video, so catch it if you can.


Elizabeth Montgomery, trying to shed her "Samantha Stevens" image, stars in this storyline of a journalist in Fresh York Town who judges rape/assault victims for bringing it on themselves, being in the wrong zone at the wrong time, by perhaps wearing provocative clothes. She may not tell it in so many words, but it's in her entire manner and attitude. Coworkers say her she's a difficult person, being raised with a privileged and simple childhood. Quick forward to her getting out of her cab late one night, fumbling for her keys at the door of her poorly lit apartment building. She is jumped from behind, as later as she's in, and beaten mercilessly by a group of two or three black boys, though only one did most of the beating. Through her depression and recovery, she becomes prejudiced of all blacks. When a news reporter gets an interview from her, her fresh views are aired on TV, getting her in hot water. Though this TV film may seem to be biting off more than it can chew and most of the helping users are fair to middling in their range, the entire treatment of the topics matter was nice and of course Ms. Montgomery gives a very courageous and thoughtful performance. Her presence gives this otherwise predictable TV film an added boost, keeping the viewers' interest with her down-to-earth disposition. Will she and her son leave NYC? Will she learn there's a bully behind each corner and in all walks of life? "Act of Violence" is an ambitious and earnest look at life in NYC that's still pertinent today as it was in the late 1970s.
