mediocre thriller, nice eye candy
9 February 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This one is strictly for fans who want to see japan's action star Cheiko Shiratori nude, an event the script obliges us in the first ten minutes. After that, it's a routine story of a rogue cop protecting a mob witness. Yawn. There is a back story about a politician whose daughter needs a kidney and so he is turning a blind eye to the pervert mob boss's organ theft activities and hindering the investigation. Whatever. Not much here in the way of plot, just a lot of not very interesting banter between the bad girl gun moll and the super-bad girl cop. It also lacks the flashy action visuals typical of most Japanese crime movies, and notable earlier in this series. A waste of Cheiko and much of the viewer's time.
