More a softcore sex romp than a tale of bloody vengeance
This "sequel" to "Sex and Fury" is more of a softcore sex romp than the bloody tale of revenge its parent was. Teruo Ishii's direction is a little flat and uneven and it's quite obvious his passion is female flesh, not kinetic action or creating a glorious action/erotic hybrid. Norifumi Suzuki, the director of "Sex and Fury", is a more original, energetic director and brought great artistry and aesthetic brilliance to his work. Ishii's accomplishment is a diverting time filler with too many characters, some intrigue, and mountains of softcore canoodling. The opening fight scene revisits the stylistics of the original film, but quickly dispenses with that style and involves itself in unnecessarily complex plotting. The finale is reasonably bloody, but it never reaches the towering heights of its predecessor because Ishii directs it like he's bored.
