Storyline

Yoshie, the younger and ill-treated sister of a renowned Geisha, is discovered to have natural strength and fighting ability. She's recruited into an army of Geisha assassins by the rich and powerful owner of a steel-works, Kageno. During training large (and interesting) parts of their bodies are altered into weaponry directly linked to their brains. Yoshie soon realizes that Kagenos real plan is to have his robotic castle throw a new and very powerful nuclear bomb into the centre of Fuji-san, effectively destroying Japan entirely. With the help of other 'Kageno defectors', she sets out to stop him and his Tengu warriors. Written by kwedgwood@gmail.com

Cult Classic in Waiting
16 May 2011 | by (Austin Texas) – See all my reviews

Let me start I AM FEMALE: usually boys only like this type of flick, but if you're that chick (as I am), HOLY FUN FUN FUN!!!

What I signed up for, and GOT:

Awesome (and incredibly, um, "inventive") fighting, chicks who kick butt, lame Godzilla-type monsters you laugh at (the rubber-suit), good tension between woman relationships, and--I hate this watching some Japanese--no rape scenes. One scene kinda off a bit and hit a nerve, but not as bad as most. Most things a feminist (I am) would scream at are them making fun of their own culture, and a total HOOT!

And pink good pick: US would have done black... LA-aaaME!!!

If you're into this style of flick (it's a flick, not film: get over it), it's everything you want, nothing you don't!!! I sat with jaw dropped clear to ground on edge of seat for most the flick--I couldn't guess what was next, and it kept breaking my expectation for the ABSOLUTE ABSURD...

"I have one too!" Nearly missed this fabulous scene, laughing SO hard!

It's a Japanese future "Dead Alive": a worthy cult classic nomination. Why doesn't the Academy Awards do that category?

I work in progressive politics: the portrayal of the elders who fight for their children couldn't make me laugh harder. It's all teasing fun; it's all too true, thus genuinely FUNNY.

Two points off some scenes could have been better, and the near-rape. I hate that stuff.
