Exploitation martial arts classic as a group of women fight against an evil overlord for their freedom
18 September 2006 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

I saw this German/Chinese co-production in German and all I can say is at some point this schlock classic has to come to DVD in English because this movie is just too much fun.

As I said I saw this in German so I can't be sure how much I understood but I think it goes something like this: a group of white women are sold into slavery by some pirates t some warlord who runs a town. The women are to be prostitutes and sex slaves. The women are secretly trained in various martial arts by a woman who is trying to get rid of the warlord. At some point the women fight back and a huge battle ensues with the half dressed women fighting for their freedom against an army of men dressed as ninjas.

I really liked this movie a great deal even though I saw this in German sans subtitles. I didn't understand anything other than what could be shown, but with action this good it didn't make any difference. This is pure exploitation gold. The movie seems funny (intentionally), it has good acting, beautiful people, great action and the sense to just keep going. Its wonderful fun.

See this movie, even if you have to see it un-dubbed or subtitled, this is a movie that should be sought out by action and exploitation lovers everywhere.
