Ex-Yakuza chooses: buddies or babe
3 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The formula is simple: take a long-legged Japanese beauty like Kaori Shimamura, who looks really good with a gun in her hand, and can also display a magnificent body during the sex scenes, and put a shell of a story around it.

In this case, we have our girl trying to hit the head of the Yakuza for killing her sister.

There is lots of shooting (both bullets and sperm) and blood enough to appease the vampires in the audience. There is also some really strange action that will best be left for the viewer to discover.

One of the best I've seen.
