A young cop girl armed with a yo-yo... Yeah, okay..., 1 May 2012
Author: Paul Magne Haakonsen from Denmark

Only in Japan...

"Yo Yo Girl Cop" was actually really cheesy, but it worked on a great level. The action was nice, over-the-top and outrageous as you'd find only in Japanese movies.

The storyline was equally cheesy and silly. A young girl is recruited by some odd police force to infiltrate a school, and she is given a yo-yo as a weapon. A yo-yo! Yeah, cool... So it is no secret that it is not the story that drives the movie, but the action keeps the engine running.

Despite it being a non-plausible story and cheesy movie, then "Yo Yo Girl Cop" was actually great entertainment. It is a total no-brainer with lots of adrenaline and action. The fighting scenes were actually well choreographed and were nice to look at.

"Yo Yo Girl Cop" is actually worth sitting down to watch if you have an hour and a half to spare. When I saw that it was starring J-Pop sensation Aya Matsuura, I was a bit skeptical, as I am not much fan of singers turning to the movies, but she actually pulled off her role quite well.
