Two great tastes that taste great together
20 November 2005 | by (Bear, Delaware) – See all my reviews

Sex & Fury is a top-notch epic revenge exploitationer/vintage Japanese softcore porno. Director Norifumi Suzuki (Beautiful Girl Hunter, School of the Holy Beast) paints a gorgeous violent tint on this mammary-heavy early 19th century postwar Japan period piece which stars two exploitation princesses--Reiko Ike (Female Yakuza Tale, Graveyard of Honor) and Christina Lindberg (Thriller: A Cruel Picture).

Reiko Ike plays Ocho. After her boss's thugs make a move to kill her, Ocho, a badass sexy outlaw wielding swords and razor gambling tiles, kicks off on a mission to kill the three tattooed yakuza creeps who offed her father as she bore witness as a small child. Her search leads her right up the ranks of corruption and crime, through gambling dens and bathrooms and snowy courtyards, with a few surprises along the way. One of those surprises comes in bisexual spy Christina (Lindberg) who crosses paths with Ocho on her search for information, sometimes as allies and sometimes as enemies but always as two women on top of their game. Christina is caught between her treacherous handler Guiness and her star-crossed love for a Japanese informant. There's also a dying gambler who makes Ocho promise to set free his yakuza -aptive virginal daughter. So there is a lot going on here but it's also all a setup to show lots of beautiful skin, including a hot lesbo scene.

All in all, a very classy and enjoyable Japanese exploitation bloodspray flick that really pays off in many colorful ways. Very highly recommended to any exploitation or cult movie fan, especially fans of Lady Snowblood and girl gang films.
