Ahhh a true classic, a cinematic masterpiece of epic proportions. This was part of the Sonny Chiba Street Fighter series from the mid 70s. This one is my favorite because Sonny takes a back seat to Sue Shiomi who plays the main character Sister Streetfighter. Another colorful hypnotic Japanese film full of outrageous dialogue, tons of karate action, and a whole slew of various ancient martial arts weapons are shown in full force throughout. I show this film a lot to friends, it's a rollicking good time and always provides big laughs. All you gotta know about this film is that it has classic dialogue like "Save the wigs!" in it, what more do you want?
