one of the better Japanese WIP flicks I've seen
5 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Robber/murderer, Misaki Sayama is a new prisoner in a maximum security training facility known simply as the Island where she must 'train' with the other prisoners or face strict punishment at the hands of the sadistic guards. Now she must formulate an escape plan with the other prisoners while avoiding the guards if she hopes to survive.

This is the second Japanese WIP flick that I've seen in less than a weeks time (the first was Chain Gang Girls) And while both films have similarities (naturally) I found that both were different enough not to seem redundant. I, personally, enjoyed this film more and felt that the story was a bit more realized.

Eye Candy: 27 pairs of breasts (not all unique, just by count of scenes); 17 asses, 10 unique bushes & 2 simulated sex scenes

My Grade:C+

DVD Extras: none
