Sexy and furious Japanese exploitation
20 May 2009 | by The_VoidSee all my reviews

Pinky violence films are often a real mixed bag and you can never be really sure what you're going to get when going into one. For me, Sex and Fury is not one of the major highlights of the genre; but it's an extremely well made, interesting and inventive effort that I'm sure will be appreciated by fans of this sort of film. The film brings together a number of common genre elements; we've got swordfights, gambling houses and plenty of nudity; which is good, but the script could have done with a little more focus, as the film has a tendency to descend into a mess. The plot focuses on Ocho; a Japanese pickpocket and gambler. After a fight in a gambling house, Ocho ends up with a fellow gambler dying in her arms. His last wish is for her to track down his sister and pay some money to prevent her being sold to a brothel. She sets off to fulfil this wish, but during her journey happens on information pertaining to the whereabouts of her fathers killers, and so sets about getting revenge.

The film starts with a bang as not long after it starts, we are treated to a swordfight in which the lead characters battles her foes naked. This fight is really well done; but unfortunately the film never reaches this dizzy high for the rest of the runtime. The film is not particularly violent compared to the rest of the genre, although there are a few good and well choreographed fight scenes. Aside from the main plot, we have another little story involving a "British" spy, played by Swedish actress Christina Lindberg. She's nice looking, but an awful actress and this plot really only serves in making the whole thing more complicated. It's not really believable either, and feels a bit ridiculous. Anyway, this is made up for somewhat by a fantastic score that features often throughout the film. There's plenty of nudity and as always, most of the actresses are very nice to look at. The film all boils down to a decent conclusion that gives closure to most of the plots featured. Overall; this is not among the best of the genre, but it's a good film and worth seeing.
