Storyline

Fish has spent six years in jail. Six years alone. Six years keeping his mouth shut about the robbery, about the other men involved. The night he is released, the four men he protected with silence celebrate his freedom with a congratulatory dinner. The meal is a lavish array of sushi, served off the naked body of a beautiful young woman. The sushi girl seems catatonic, trained to ignore everything in the room, even if things become dangerous. Sure enough, the four unwieldy thieves can't help but open old wounds in an attempt to find their missing loot. Written by Kern Saxton

Psychos, torture, fish and diamonds...
22 July 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Well, appearances can be deceiving and I must say that I initially didn't have much expectations to this movie given the poster and DVD cover for this movie. But still, I decided to give it a go, and I am glad that I did, because this movie took me by surprise.

The movie turned out to be a really interesting movie with a very well-told story. However, I will point out that albeit the story is compelling and the movie is interesting, this is the type of movie that you watch once and never again because it just doesn't have enough to offer for a second watching. That being said, I am not saying that "Sushi Girl" is a bad movie, far from it.

The story is a tale of revenge and betrayal, where the audience is left in the dark trying to grasp out what is going on, and the movie tends to take turns here and there, and those turn are for a better twist and a more gory twist. So if you enjoy blood and torture, stick around for the movie.

Now what really surprised me was the people they had assembled for the cast. The main cast was really nice and they did good jobs with their given roles, and there were some great appearances in the movie as cameos as well. All together a very good ensemble of actors on the billing list. Personally, it was great for me to see Mark Hamill in this role, after having seen him flunk out with the last couple of recent movies. And seeing him in this particular pseudo-psychotic role was just brilliant. But also hats off to Tony Todd for his usual gloomy, charismatic performance. Noah Hathaway and Andy Mackenzie also did really great jobs. And for the cameo appearances you have Jeff Fahey, Michael Biehn and Danny Trejo. Of these latter three, Michael Biehn's role was just off the rails, it was awesome.

"Sushi Girl" is a heist movie gone bad, and it was great from the very beginning to the very end - despite it being a single shot movie (in the terms that you watch it once and never again).

I can highly recommend "Sushi Girl" if you want to be entertained for about an hour and a half. Just be warned that there is some torture scenes that can be quite graphic to watch for those faint of heart.
