Koryu's exploding fist vs. unusual humans
7 February 2009 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

Koryu (Etsuko Shihomi) is sent from Hong Kong to Japan to investigate the disappearance of her brother who was trying to find proof against drug smugglers. She needs to fight against their boss who once says "I like unusual humans and keep them", and assembled all kinds of strange looking fighters therefore, from a guy with a Mohawk and arrows to a jungle women squad. Some of his guards wear a black mask for no reason at all, as they take it off in every fight, anyway.

Koryu's almost only friends are at a Shorinji Kempo school. Sonny Chiba, star of the original "Street Fighter", appears there as well. Shorinji Kempo differs from many other kinds of Martial arts by its strong Buddhist idea of happiness. Many viewers were irritated about the mirrored swastika symbol they use in the movie. Although it is true that such a cross was a symbol of good luck in ancient times, Shorinji Kempo was invented as late as 1947, when the overwhelming majority of people had an entirely different understanding for the symbol, thus it was not clever to use. They must have been told because they changed it meanwhile...

The notorious Norifumi Suzuki wrote on the screenplay for "Sister Street Fighter", but didn't direct in the end. It's still bewildering enough, though! 18 year old Etsuko Shihomi in the title role looks so innocent, but really explodes with energy in the fights. Mind you, nowadays they often cast models for such films who look good in the close-ups, while fast cutting has to hide the fact that they know little about martial arts (check out the lady in Jackie Chan's „New Police Story" for a typical example). In 1974, Etsuko had to do everything for real, hiding the bruises of the battles, and the result is still impressive today. I voted 8/6/8/7 for the 4 "Sister Street Fighter" movies.
