Big Circle Blues (1992)
Reviewed by: STSH on 2000-02-01
Summary: Pointless & mostly dull
Not much to recommend here. Michiko's fans are likely to be disappointed with her brief fight scenes (though they're quite good). The outbursts of action are too infrequent, and the entire cast looks bored, and certainly don't seem to be enjoying themselves.
The climactic showdown between crims and the law is not bad, but hardly worth waiting 80 minutes for.
I cannot work out why the Cat III rating was applied. There's a very brief and non-explicit attempted rape, and the violence is nowhere near Cat III status. Though I confess I jumped past 20 minutes (through boredom), and this portion may have contained some nudity.
Don't bother !
