An entertaining B movie
12 January 2019 | by ONensloSee all my reviews

A gangster with domestic troubles and an unconvincing toupee is getting too big for his territory so his superiors call in the female assassin known as M to settle his hash for him. More of a martial arts movie than a yakuza tale, much of the interest is in the extended footchases through trashed and abandoned industrial sites, ending in karate standoffs of the type that require a lot of heavy breathing and twisting the hands into contorted shapes to enable one person to whoop the tar out of eight or nine hapless fools. The brief gratuitous nudity is the result of violent attacks by men on women, which are quickly avenged with injury or death by the skilled assassin M. There isn't much more story than that, but it maintains a good pace, and there is some striking camera work making good use of the decaying industrial settings. Reiko Ike as M is moderately attractive and well-dressed in stylish contemporary duds, but the main pleasure is seeing her pound those blouse-ripping louts. There is some spattering of brightly colored blood and a few slightly grotesque stabby demises, but nothing too grisly for the sensitive viewer. All in all an enjoyable entertainment for fans of the genre.
