Sukeban Boy - Abomination

Movie: Sukeban Boy
My Rating: 3 stars

Oh boy.  How am I going to explain this one?  Well, I suppose my reputation is shot to heck by this point, so I'll just up and own this one.  I rented this movie because it looked freaking fun.  I suppose my brother opened the door to this genre for me when he insisted that I would enjoy watching Machine Girl (which I did, of course).  So, I'm blaming him for this abomination.  Although, this movie takes the whole over-the-top violence, mutilation, and martial arts to a whole new level.  But, where Machine Girl goes crazy with replacing perfectly good body parts with wild automatic-weapon-prostheses, Sukeban Boy goes nuts, adding gratuitous nudity to the mix.  It's all bras and panties, and some of the worst boob jobs I've ever seen in my life.  Although, god bless those Japanese porn stars.  I'm glad to see they're trying to make an honest day's living in mainstream movies.  Not that this film is in any way mainstream.  There's no way this film would ever make it to a US theater without an X rating.  Even the promotional art is censored.  Ok.  So I guess this is the point where I have to actually tell you what the movie's about, and display my shame for the whole neighborhood to see.  Ok, so Sukeban is a boy.  Sure, sure, he's played by Japanese porn star, Asami Sugiura, but let's just suspend our disbelief and pretend we believe she's a boy.  So, Sukeban looks so girly that he's getting severely bullied at his public school.  So his crazy dad has the brilliant idea to get him a wig and send him to the local all-girl's private school.  So far, so good, as long as Sukeban can remember not to scratch his balls during class.  That is, until he realizes that this is no ordinary all-girls school.  No.  This happens to be a training ground for all kinds of exotic, all-girls, martial arts gangs--each of which is dead set on making this sexy new transfer student a member.  The only problem is that all these gangs fight half nude, so Sukeban doesn't want to join for fear that the whole school will learn his secret.  The movie is pure wild, gratuitous, campy fun.  So, if you haven't been totally offended by the description up to this point (and if you're sure that you have the house to yourself for the evening) you might want to give this movie a peek.

How dare you blame me for machine girl. Certainly you were already aware of it.

Oh, you are totally to blame for that one. You opened my eyes to a whole new genre. You've created a monster.

Andrew said...

Ok, Ms. Miike.

Allison said...

Yes, yes, you have a point, but this is an extra special sub-genre. Miike is kinda twisted and bizarre. But these movies are meant to be over the top and funny.
