Storyline

A raucous teen boy with a feminine face is teased everywhere, so his odd biker father dresses him as a girl and sends him to an all-girl school. The lad introduces himself as Sukeban, and a classmate, Michiko, takes him to after-school activities. Lessons on humility turn violent when a masked hatchet-wielding woman turns up. Jealousy, syringes of hormones, bare breasts, a blood bath, and more figure in the resolution. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Absolutely Brilliant!!!
26 February 2011 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

This movie is great. I went into this without expecting much but came away very entertained.

This movie is absolutely ridiculous which is what makes it so good. Some parts are slapstick Hilarius. The fight scenes are meant to be bad but are very well shot that you appreciate the "artistry" involved. A lot of young nubile boobs thrown in as well.

The acting of the title character "Sukeban" is quite good actually. She plays the boy quite well. very good physical comedian. All the male characters are jokes...played for laughs.

I was laughing a lot through this movie, even the ending credits were ridiculous. I highly recommend.
