A Lifetime Movie in Cantonese
14 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Women Prison is basically a Lifetime movie women in prison movie in Chinese, with slightly more graphic violence. The plot follows Kelly Hu, a young woman who gets sent to prison after nearly killing one of the loan sharks who crashes her wedding. She soon gets caught up in a power struggle between brutal "big sister" Fatty and sardonic upstart Lynn.

Although the film's cover features a salacious photo of a strip search, the film actually avoids the more exploitative elements of the genre, perhaps to its detriment. Other than a few beatings, there is nothing to distinguish this from a TV movie of the week. To add insult to injury, the subtitling is substandard, with numerous grammatical errors and misspellings.
