Nudity, swords and sexual references
24 November 2001 | by sharptongueSee all my reviews

A weird formulaic sexploitation actioner. The object seems to be to get the clothes off some lovely gals at every excuse, then alternate with smouldering looks, dirty deals and action.

The result is quite an entertaining soft-porn actioner. There's just enough wackiness to keep things from getting dull, too. The main subplot is basically girl ninjas vs guy ninjas. For every trick the male ninjas pull (e.g. third leg torture, the dick stick), the girls have a reply (e.g. balloon blow up).

Things could have been better, though. The producers missed many extra opportunities to get the girls naked and, unfortunately, although they appear completely unclothed, they are never shown full frontal.

Overall, there's just enough outfit-dropping, sword-slashing and double-dealing to keep things going, and a bit extra. Worth a look.
