a total treat from beginning to end
7 October 2005 | by (Greenwich - London) – See all my reviews

High art, this is not, even if the cinematography is immaculate and the film looks stunning throughout, but for sheer sensational sex and violence cinema, this is surely unbeatable. A little melodramatic at times, perhaps, for Western tastes and possibly the occasional farcical humour seems out of place but oh, how can one resist the gorgeous Reiko Ike, breast bared and ready to kill. There is Christina Lindberg (Thriller - A Cruel Picture) as an added bonus, even if she is playing a Brit! The final swordfight where Reiko races about the mansion getting her men is a grand finale of immense proportions but surely the fight at the start where she beats a dozen or so…totally naked, tops even this. Far, far more flesh on display than I expected and more spurtings of blood, this is just a total treat from beginning to end…in a snowstorm. Sound familiar? This is better. Must rush to order the follow up!
