Disappointing teaming of Moon Lee and Yukari Oshima
"Mission of Justice" opens with a bang: a short fight between Moon Lee and Gary Daniels (yes, THAT Gary Daniels), even before the title appears on the screen. The first half of the movie has some pretty good action scenes, although it's quite atypical in having Yukari Oshima a) being the cute good girl, b) generally getting her butt kicked. But the middle is alternately boring (lots and lots of scenes of people traveling through Thai jungles) and misguided (THREE women get raped - isn't there enough exploitation of women in other films, do we really need to find it in a Moon Lee - Yukari Oshima vehicle?). The two leads disappear for a long time, and the baddies take over. When they reappear at the end, you start getting prepared for some more good action, but much of it is spoiled by excessive use of slow motion and "echoing" sound effects. Not one of the better films in either woman's catalogue. ** out of 4.
