Rather Dull
29 May 2016 | by Uriah43See all my reviews

Confronted with an illegal organ-harvesting operation the Japanese police basically has two choices at their disposal. The first option involves sending in an assassin from "Section Zero" by the name of "Rei" (Chieko Shiratori) to essentially liquidate every person involved. The second choice centers on obtaining reliable testimony in which to indict and convict those responsible. Based on the fact that a woman named "Nana" (Ichiho Matsuda) is the mistress of the mob leader in charge and has agreed to testify against him the second option is given precedence. However, it remains to be seen whether the information she has is credible enough to convict the insane mob leader named "Kaneda" (Masayoshi Nogami). Likewise, keeping Nana alive long enough to testify is another major concern. As a result, Rei is ordered to temporarily guard Nana which becomes an ordeal for both of them as time progresses. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that the directors (Hidekazu Takahara and Arlen Tarlofsky) had two attractive actresses and an interesting concept to work with. Yet despite the resources available to them the end result lacked the action, suspense and eroticism necessary for an adequate sequel. Throw in a bizarre subplot involving a bisexual drag queen and the overall effect was not something I found to be enjoyable. Maybe it's a cultural thing. In any case, I found this movie to be rather dull. Because of that I have rated this film accordingly. Slightly below average.
