Run of the mill action flick
6 October 2003 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

A hit-woman goes after the Japanese mafia with a mad-on after her sister is killed. This is a merely ok foreign action flick. Has a few sleazy moments meant to shock. But it doesn't tread any new ground, which is fine as it has a style of to it.

My Grade:C-

DVD extras: Trailers for Terminatrix, Sumo Vixens, Weather Woman, Blowback: Love and death, Tokyo Mafia: Yakuza Wars; a (not very good) trivia game; & cast bios

Eye Candy: Kaori Shimamura as Ran (the Black Orchid), has a lengthy nude love scene early on. She's topless later on but in a far less erotic way.
