The Last Tattoo 2001 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
The Last Tatto is a murder mystery set in WWII New Zealand. The heroine walks in the high heeled tough tootsie traditon of Laruen Bacall. Kerry Fox vamps the troops in to die for Forties dresses and “Love That Red” lipstick and nail polish. As a “heart of gold” public health nurse, she tracks down VD sexual contacts for treatment and aides business girls in trouble. Her searches lead her to brothels, crooked hotel unions and tattoo parlors. She becomes entangled with a US military murder investigator, who tails her until she decides to cooperate with him. The resulting partnership has romanic over tones and leads to a grim picture of US miltary wartime justice and the New Zealand Black Market in stolen US military goods. This cool headed boat driving, gun weilding nurse will make you stand up and cheer, as she over comes the “Twisted Ankle Syndrome” of old time movie heroines and rescues the hero. Rod Steiger plays the top cigar chewing US Military honcho. If you liked The Big Sleep, Key Largo and Casa Blanca heroines, then you need to see this movie!
