A big disappointment
27 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Looking for some Japanese action in this movie will leave you very hungry. This is the sixth installment of Zero Woman, based on Japanese comics. It's certainly no Batman; and that's a good thing.

Sure, there are some great shots of Chieko Shiratori, who is assigned to guard a mobster's girl (Ichiho Matsuda), but there is little in the way of action. They start off as enemies, but all that talk eventually leads to some action, except that it is in the last 10 minutes.

This film could fit nicely on the Lifetime network, as the two women spend most of the movie talking. Even when it cuts to the mobsters, they are just talking. Talk, talk, talk.

Some of the film is very grainy and, of course, it is in Japanese with no subtitles. There are some funny moments with the mobster in drag, but lack of real action means major snooze.
