Silly Story, Gritty Action - Typical Shihomi Movie
23 July 2003 | by (Honolulu, HI) – See all my reviews

-Possible Spoilers Ahead - Karei Naru Tsuiseki (AKA The Great Chase) is an oddly named movie. Although Shihomi Etsuko plays a Race Car Driver who also lends out her services to the Japanese Secret Service, there really isn't much of a "chase" to be seen (although Shihomi does pursue, a cartel of Drug Runners and Assorted Japanese Yakuza types). The story and plot rehashes much of what has already been seen in other Shihomi Etsuko vehicles of the time (`Onna Hissatsu Ken' [Female Killing Fist AKA Sister Street Fighter] - Toei, 1974; `Giyakushu! Satsujin Ken' [Revenge! Killing Fist AKA Street Fighter's Last Revenge-Toei, 1974], `Onna Hissatsu Ken - Kiki Ippatsu' [Female Killing Fist

  • Crisis Resolved AKA Return of Sister Street Fighter-Toei, 1974]). While

the story is pure 70's Exploitation and Gritty Crime Drama, the best and only reason to see it is for the Martial Arts Action of Shihomi. Shihomi is certainly an enigma in Japanese Action Cinema (a tough as nails female action star who could give Diana Rigg's Emma Peel from the "Avengers" TV Series a run for her money). While the overall film is pretty standard Toei stuff, the action is over-the-top and at times hilarious (i.e. Shihomi battling the lead criminal atop a moving gondolla or Shihomi battling a whip-wielding Catholic Nun). All-in-all a fairly fun film if you're not expecting anything really deep.
