Storyline

Matsu, known to the prisoners as Scorpion, is locked away in the bowels of the prison as revenge for disrupting the smooth operation of the prison and for her disfiguring attack on the warden. Granted a one day reprieve due to the visit of a dignitary, she takes advantage and attacks the warden again. This leads to more brutal punishment and humiliation. But the punishment gives her an opportunity to escape along with six other female prisoners. Their surreal flight from prison pits the convicts against the guards, the warden and each other.

Wow
5 May 2011 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

Meiko Kaji rocks as the Scorpion.

This movie is great. I am watching this in 2011, 39 years after it came out and I am still entertained and think its awesome. Wonder where Tarantino gets his ideas and visuals from? Its movies like these.

This movie is a mix of art and exploitation. The visuals and lighting are very well done. Some of the shots made me go "wow". The acting by Kaji aka Matsu/Scorpion is great. She says nothing until the 72minute of the movie and those 6words are the only words she speaks throughout.

Story is rather formulaic (especially in 2011) but its a visually good and exciting movie. I highly recommend.
