plenty of sexy action and stylish fighting
2 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Seeing this after a few other 'Pinky Violence' movies of the time, this seems a little slow, rather complicated and more of a melodrama than an all out sex and violence thriller. It has it's good points, however, plus the inevitable grand finale. There is nothing particularly original here but Yamaguchi does cover a lot of ground, starting in a women's prison, following one of the girls into the outside world, introducing the yakuza and picking up stories of what turn out to be other inmates and finally bringing all the strands together as the girls sweep into street action in matching red trench coats, I have a feeling a second viewing will be less confusing and thereby more rewarding because there is plenty of sexy action and stylish fighting, especially the end game shot partly up through glass floor.
