A Provocative and Sexually-Explicit Japanese Crime-Drama
"Rei" (Miki Sugimoto) is an undercover police officer who is working on a case involving the brutal murder of a young woman. One night at a nightclub she makes the acquaintance of a foreigner who buys her several drinks and then takes her to his apartment room where he intends on dispatching her in the same manner he murdered his other victim. Fortunately, she turns the tables on him and kills him first. Unfortunately, when it is discovered that the man was a foreign dignitary the police chief decides to throw her into prison without a trial or charges being preferred to avoid a possible scandal. Her situation changes, however, when the daughter of the incoming Prime Minister is kidnapped and Rei's services are required to rescue her at all costs. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this was a provocative crime-drama which featured plenty of action along with two attractive actresses in Hiromi Kishi (as the Prime Minister's daughter "Kyoko Nagumo") and the aforementioned Miki Sugimoto. On the flip side, some of the acting was a bit over-the-top as were some of the special effects as well. I should probably also mention that this is an extremely violent film which had several brutal scenes involving rape and nudity which might not appeal to all audiences. In any case, it's an interesting movie and I have rated it accordingly. Slightly above average.
