|If you can't turn this
film and a six-pack into a party, you have had your sense of fun
surgically removed. Right off the bat here, we are dealing with
topless female Sumo wrestlers. Thin ones. I would like to think heaven
was a little like this. Add a plot, overacting, and make the star Kei
Mizutani (Weather Woman), and you have the Seven Samurai of Topless
Skinny Female Sumo Wrestler films.
|At least 10 women show breasts
and buns nearly in every scene, including Kei Mizautani.
|| The daughter of a famous
historical female Sumo Wrestler wants to revive a female Sumo school
to save her mother's property from Yakuza loan sharks. She
enlists the aid of a former Sumo/Jailbird/Yakuza to help her gather
and train a team. The Yakuza brings in some ringers, and the bout is
for ownership of the dojo.
guideline: 7.5 usually indicates a level of
excellence, about like three and a half stars
from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm
watchability, about like two and a half stars
from the critics. The fives are generally not
worthwhile unless they are really your kind of
material, about like two stars from the critics.
Films under five are generally awful even if you
like that kind of film, equivalent to about one
and a half stars from the critics or less,
depending on just how far below five the rating
guideline: A means the movie is so good it
will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not
good enough to win you over if you hate the
genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an
open mind about this type of film. C means it will only
appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover
appeal. D means you'll hate it even if you
like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if
you love the genre. F means that the film is not only
unappealing across-the-board, but technically
inept as well.
Based on this
description, this film is a C+, my
highest soft-core score. Lots of breasts, unique concept, and
a ton of bad movie gestalt.
