Extremely silly Thai musical comedy
17 December 2004 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

This is a very silly Thai musical comedy featuring a cute transvestite secret agent, Iron Pussy, who falls in love with a no-good man while on the case.

Nothing about Iron Pussy works, but that's probably the point. The plot is as Z-grade as any Asian soap opera (like Australia's Neighbours, but more over-the-top), and features long-lost children, incest, lame martial arts sequences and several reprises of the one song – for some unknown reason. It's also difficult to follow the travails of the characters - although no one except for Miss Pussy really matters in this film. However, The Adventures of Iron Pussy is good fun and definitely tongue-in-cheek (or perhaps any other orifice you'd care to name). **/***** stars - a guilty pleasure.
