I am addicted to laughing. I might have just found one of the funniest film I have ever watched. A big fan of Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction here, but this one tops it. Don’t get mad now. I am not a man-hater but the portrayal of men in this film is a bit accurate; they are kind of like wild dogs when they are not domesticated. But the women in this film are just as bad. In fact, they are as brutal as the men—even more so, I would say. I had a good laugh seeing both genders behaving like animals, battling against each other. The scenes are so shockingly grotesque that I watched it three times in a row! I am just that shocked!
The stunningly beautiful main character Scorpion, played by Meiko Kaji, is the most dangerous prisoner. Get too close and she will bite. The police had to lock her in the underground facility where insects resided. For a year, she was in insolation. Until one day, the head of the policemen got promoted and decided to treat her like a human and invited her to celebrate with him along with other female prisoners. His sadistic way of taming the female prisoners into good girls led him to promotion. How ironic is that? But this is where the fun starts. It’s time for the girls to break out of jail and put those bad boys back in their place!
I won’t go into details about the plot because I just don’t want to spoil for folks who have not seen it. Apart from the plot, the cinematography is superb. As I mentioned before, I watched it 3 times, well 4 times now. It is so well done and the dialogues were well thought out that if I ever feel the need to laugh, I will just watch this film. It’s that good.
