Imagine if Quentin Tarantino were to direct a short film staring a sexy female goth version of James Bond working as a secret agent for God and his crew.   That will give you a pretty good idea of what to expect from Foxxy Madonna vs The Black Death.   Although just over 15 minutes in length, the film manages to pay tribute to the classic 70s action movie genre in style and mood while presenting a story with a fresh voice.   From the funky title graphics to the groovy music, the creators have actually done a good job of capturing the overall vibe of the 70s without shooting on film.   The quality of the production was good.  Although I have seen no-budget projects with better visual quality, this one is definitely better than average.  

Writer / director / editor Jakob Bilinski has done what few multitasking, no-budget film makers have done by competently tackling each of his positions without letting any area suffer.  The story offers more than the average action movie plot and doesn't have any spots where it feels dragged out.  The computer effects are used well and add to the film rather than detract from it as is so often the case.  The lead role of Foxxy Madonna is played impressively by the attractive and talented Monica Barajas.   Jomar 'Dez' Banks also delivers a noteworthy performance at The Black Death.  In summation, Foxxy Madonna vs The Black Death has a solid story, fluid editing and competent crew which all add up to equal an entertaining and very watchable no-budget short film.
