Weak, dull and topless. One out of three ain't good enough.
It was easy to get take in by the pretty ladies on the DVD box and the title - Oppai Chanbara - Striptease Samurai Squad could have some potential. Sadly there isn't a squad in movie and there isn't much stripteasing. It's one lone gal trying to help protect a village from a gang of robbers. Lili is learning sword fighting in modern Japan. Her grandmother tells her about a special fighting style that only women use and magically transports her 300 years back in time. Lili meets her ancestors and fights the robbers. Lili's special sword fighting style features her whipping open the front of her kimono and showing her breasts. Delightful as that is there isn't much to keep your interest in the rest of the movie. It's so dull that the 66 minute running time seems to take forever. The sword fighting is awful too. The poor stunt men have to carry the show. Lucky for them they don't have any dialog and as soon as they're stabbed they get to leave the movie. I stayed to the end and I'm probably the worse for it. Still the gals were pretty and that's why it got a 4, it deserves a 3.
