Excellent early Pinku
27 September 2008 | by (Beverley Hills, England) – See all my reviews

I have to admit that I'm not an expert when it comes to Pinky Violence, but the fact that this film features the 'Delinquent Boss' subtitle lead me to believe that it was a part of the Delinquent Girl Boss series, which often starred Reiko Oshida...although apparently this is not the case; as while this film is filmed in the same style that would go on to make many of the best genre entries what they are, there's less of a 'Sukeban' theme going on and in fact most of the main players are males...which is a bit of a shame if you ask me, but nevertheless this is still an excellent thriller. The plot focuses on a group of young men that bust out of prison and swear an oath to protect the 'brotherhood'. They soon start a little business selling girls but this attracts attention from the local Yakuza's, who see fit to shut them down. The brotherhood is none too pleased and set out to get themselves back into business and take down the Yazkuzas, and on the way they get help from a dangerous young female loner who calls herself Ocho the She Wolf.

The Pinky Violence films are often weird and feature strange story lines, but this one actually seems a bit keener to keep itself grounded in reality and the plot is not overly comical. The subtitle 'Ocho the She Wolf' suggests that the female loner will be the star of the show; and while she does play a fairly big part, she doesn't feature for too much of the film and I'm not really sure why the film has her name in the title. Ocho is played by Junko Miyazono, who also took the lead role in the Ohyaku/Okatsu trilogy, and here once again she does manage to convince as an imposing presence. The plot manages to stay interesting for the duration and director Yukio Noda delivers enough variety to keep the proceedings fresh. The male characters somehow manage to play second fiddle to the lone female despite the fact that she's not in the film for most of the duration; and that's a bit of a shame as we don't really learn a lot about them. Given that the film was made in 1969, it's not really surprising that it's not all that violent compared to other Pinky Violence offerings; but it's decent enough stuff and I'm sure fans of this genre will enjoy it.
