Keiko, the daughter of a legendary sushi chef, runs away from home when his Karate-style regimen becomes too severe. Finding work at a rural hot springs inn, she is ridiculed by the eccentric staff and guests.
Violent and very bloody and whilst not being particularly original, enjoyable, principally, I think for two main reasons; it is not overlong and it stars a gorgeous Miki Mizuno, who plays and fights her part superbly. She is the feature that keeps this monster on the road but it is also the considered direction, the believable characters and the storyline that is more involving and believable than that in say, the more celebrated, Machine Girl. A pulsating movie with as much blood flowing as you could wish for and some quite splendid hand to hand and worse fight scenes. From the downbeat opening in a ruined Yokohama landscape to the ambiguous ending, this barely puts a flying foot wrong.
