MINTY is a youthful, raven haired, punk rock, feminist, female super heroine, that gets her super powers from eating chocolate (which is a good source of antioxidants). One day Minty's agent, BIG BOSS, an older and honorable gentlemen, is taken hostage by DOCTOR BRAIN BENDER, the evil neuro-scientist. Minty then fights her way up various perverse floors of Doctor Brain Bender's paranormal building to rescue Big Boss. Several unusual villains stand in her way: CAPTAIN CAPABILITY, a freak of nature; SENSATIONAL NINJA, an effeminate assassin; RAT MONSTER, a depressed mutant; BRUCE ZEE, a psycho martial artist; MOLLY LEVIATHAN, a sensual super vixen; ZEN COWBOY, a blindfolded gunslinger; and DOUBLE DELICIOUS, an intellectual lesbian vampire. Throughout this wild odyssey, Minty educates her adversaries on the fascinating world of natural science and then uses her beauty, her brains, and pure brutality to demonstrate the biological theory of the survival of the fittest.

The above pretty much gives you all you need to know about this fantasy, action film that is as entertaining as it is off the wall. To talk about the movie itself would only ruin the fun, nothing I can say here can equal the fun that's waiting inside. The film has colorful characters that pop at you like a comic book, sure this isn't going to be for everyone but for fan's of Indie films who expect something different or even comic book lovers are going to want to check this one out. The cast did a terrific job playing these characters and I would have to think it was a lot of fun making the movie, I would love to see all the bloopers that occurred during the filming. Elina Madison is fantastic as our hero who not only gains strength from eating minty chocolate but it also ups her sex drive as well. Anthony Ray Parker is also excellent as The Big Boss, in fact the entire cast did a great job at playing out these crazy characters.

I hope "Minty" finds it's audience on DVD because it has cult following written all over it, a campy, action packed, laugh out loud comic tale that is sure to please amyone who is willing to take the chance on it. A naughty little super hero movie that had me in stitches the entire time. The DVD comes with Special Features that includes:
