Decent, 22 December 2004
Author: AwesomeWolf from Australia

Version: English dub.

I found 'Dragon Princess' on a DVD titled 'Masters of Martial Arts volume 4': four movies, on two discs, for $10. Essentially, I bought 'Dragon Princess' for $2.50.

'Dragon Princess' is pretty much 'Sister Street Fighter' with a different name. Etsuko Shihomi is brought up by her father, a karate master, to seek vengeance on those who disabled him. Etsuko then spends the rest of the movie beating up bad guys, with some (but minimal) assistance from Sonny Chiba.

That's about it. Pretty standard revenge plot, decent fighting scenes, but the camera is shaky and its sometimes hard to make out whats happening on screen. Despite the standard plot, there is an interesting sub-plot regarding Etsuko's character 'only knowing vengeance' and having no real life, however, it was done better in 'Lady Snowblood'.

5/10 - An OK karate movie.
