The weakest in the series
17 December 2006 | by (Deutschland) – See all my reviews

It seems that some might disagree with me, but i think 'Delinquent Girl Boss: Worthless To Confess', while being an OK film, is the weakest entry in the phenomenal "Pinky Violence Box". After being knocked out by other entries such as 'Girl Boss Guerilla', and my personal favorite, Suzuki's 'Terrifying Girl's Highschool', I was expecting more of the same from this one. What brought down Delinquent Girl Boss for me was the over use of the dumb, slapstick comedy. Of course films like this need a bit of comic relief, or many might find the brutality a bit harder to take. There was simply too much of it here. And the presence of Reiko Ike and personal fav Miki Sugimoto was sorely missed, although Reiko Oshida, whose image graces the cover of the box set, is certainly gorgeous, in a Barbie doll sort of way. But she lacks the raw intensity of the others, as this film lacks the intensity of the other films. Another thing wrong with this one was the lack of violence and sex! I know that sex and violence does not necessarily equal good cinema, but for this genre, it is actually expected. For a 'pinky violence' film, there was very little violence, and even less 'pink', or skin. Of course 'Worthless To Confess' has it's shining moments, especially towards the end, when the gang dons their trench coats and exacts their revenge on the yakuza gang that did them wrong. But again, it just seemed more comical than powerful. However I cannot compliment the other films enough. 'Criminal Woman: Killing Melody' is probably the most well made film of them all, and might be Reiko Ike's best role. And the music cd of Reiko singing is dazzling as well. But 'Worthless To Confess' just didn't really stand out for me, unfortunately. I recommend this collection regardless.
