Woohoo Miki rulez!
28 July 2005 | by (Brussels, Belgium) – See all my reviews

OK, you have to like Pinky Violence films, or at least be able to see the humor of it, or just want to get your hands on anything by the master of Japanese sexploitation, Norifumi Suzuki. As it goes for me, I just want anything with Miki Sugimoto in it. If I may be just a wee bit sexist about this: she has every protruding body part stuck in exactly the right corpo-topographic position.

But anyway, it has been argued that this film (the 4th in the Sukeban-series, aka Girl Boss or Onna Bancho, and the final one to be directed by Suzuki) takes itself a bit too seriously compared to its predecessor (Sukeban Guerilla). And this is true (now that I've seen Guerilla). Still, it takes less time to get to top speed (whatever that is in these exploitation films) than that one, and some scenes are really well-shot. Although I abhor the woman-betraying-guy-who-means-it-well type. F*#% it, the guy should just get a serious beating woman! Where's the sukeban spirit here?!

So quite OK, but for exploitation-fans only. But Miki Sugimoto is great, though there are a couple of other flicks that do her more justice.

ps: the torture-while-in-chains is almost a carbon-copy of the one in Guerilla; and, for that, Zero Woman: Red Handcuffs is still the better one.
