While it is marginally better than the other two entries in the "XX" series I watched recently ("Beautiful Prey" and "Beautiful Weapon"), "Beautiful Beast" is still barely worthy of a recommendation. The usual ingredients are here: lengthy sex scenes, kinkiness, torture (including some acupuncture!), a few gunshots, and of course a violent end for most of the characters involved. The action is limited, the pacing is patience-trying, and the ending is anti-climactic. Kaori Shimamura is beautiful indeed, but the most interesting character in the film is her newfound "boyfriend", who has to choose between his fascination with her and his loyalty to his former Yakuza associates. Girls-with-guns fans looking into the Japanese market will be better served by most "Zero Woman" films. (**)
