Not the best Pinky Violence flick
8 September 2009 | by (Beverley Hills, England) – See all my reviews

This film was included in the Region 1 Pinky Violence Boxset, and unfortunately it has to be said that it's the worst of the set. Like many of this type of film, the plot is overly complicated and confusing; but unlike other genre films, the overall film is entertaining enough to adequately mask the plotting problems; and therefore the film is more of a boring mess than an entertaining one. That being said, Delinquent Girl Boss: Worthless to Confess still has it's moments and is not a complete waste of time for fans of this type of film. The plot focuses on delinquent girls, and one in particular is Rika - she's fresh out of reform school and decides to track down the father of one of her friends from inside. She finds him and it turns out he runs a garage. He offers her a job and lodging, and being short on other options; she takes him up on the offer. However, the local Yakuza want a share in the garage and insist on getting it despite the owner's reluctance to agree. Naturally, it all ends in violence.

The film is not nearly as over the top as some other films in the genre and that's a shame as it gets boring too often. There's also not a great deal of skin featured - naturally there's no full frontal nudity, but oddly there isn't any naked breasts either. Luckily the film is decent enough on the style side of things and director Kazuhiko Yamaguchi provides some vibrant colours and there's a decent musical score also. Reiko Oshida takes the lead role in the film. She's not one of the big Pinky Violence stars, and I'm not too surprised at that as she doesn't have the same level of charisma as the likes of Miki Sugimoto and Reiko Ike. However, it's a good performance and she leads the film well. There's a handful of fight scenes but nothing really all that memorable up until the end. Suffice to say the film does end on a high with a good bloody battle, but the process of getting there isn't as exciting as I would have hoped. Still, while this isn't a great genre film; I'm sure that fans of Pinky Violence will get some sort of kick out of it.
