Meiko Kaji again plays Nami Matsushima, a woman who has escaped from prison and is on the run from the police. The opening scene where she cuts off a detectives are and has to carry it with her is unforgettable.
She takes shelter with a woman whose brother is mentally slow and they also have an incestuous relationship. The now one armed detective named Kondo (Mikio Narita) is on the hunt for Nami and will stop at nothing to get her.
Nothing includes torture and murder. Nami hides when the police start to tie her in with the woman and her brother, but is eventually cornered by the police in the sewer and is thought to have been killed. But we know that isn't true as this is only the third installment in the series.
There is plenty of great action in this movie and the ending is one that while it may not suprise you, it will make you think. A very good all round film that most people should see.
Japanese films like this are really great entertainment and could only come from the Land Of The Rising Sun. Check it out.
