God's Warrior finds love
28 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is not a lot of story here: woman becomes a hit-man for a blind "priest" who leads a crime family. She is caught on camera by a third-rate news photographer. She falls in love with him.

But, there are three interesting details about the movie that made it somewhat interesting.

First, the incredibly beautiful Japanese star, Makiko Kuno. She also makes the movie worth watching.

Secondly, as many times as i have seen someone begging for their life, I have never seen a situation like the one in this movie. Let's just say that Johnny Okura used his tongue for more than words and hit the jackpot.

Finally, there is the torture when Kuno was caught. I do not think the CIA will rendition any Americans to japan for torture. Despite the use of an electrified prod as a dildo, the fact that Kuno and Okura could make love once they escaped shows that Maiko Kazama is not a good torturer.

Despite the fact that I did not find this one great, I will be looking for more Makiko Kuno under directors Kiyoshi Kurosawa and Takashi Miike.
