A brilliant doctor (Kairi Narita) vows revenge
sadistic son (Noriaki R, Kamata) of a dead Japanese politician. He trains a
meth addict (Asami) to be the
prefect assassin. He will surgically implant
three pieces of a gun in her where she must pull the stitches to get to two of
those parts after her body is smuggled into an underground facility where all
guns are fingerprint activated and where rich people can carry out their
necrophilia desires. GUN WOMAN is a
violent and bloody revenge flick that is for fans of exploitation films,
violent Japanese films, and 1980s action movies just with lots of nudity and
blood. GUN WOMAN accomplishes an
awesome revenge flick with a woman with a gun on a limited budget and
schedule. Kurando Mitsutake is a
Japanese director to watch and find his other movies that he made.
The first audio commentary is in Japanese (with
subtitles) featuring writer/ director Kurando Mitsutake and actress Asami (who
didn’t know a word of English when she did this movie).
The second audio commentary is in English with
director Kurando Mitsutake.
The five part behind-the-scenes documentary is
a little long
(at over 45 minutes), but it does feature plenty of interviews with cats and
crew intermingled with behind-the-scenes footage. It focuses on the cast,
the director, the
action, special effects make-up (which involved lots of blood and fire
extinguisher tubing to deliver that gushing blood), and using real guns on set
(and the safety meetings they had along with footage of the actors learning how
to use the guns and assemble/ reassemble them).
Rounding out the extras are two theatrical trailers
FINAL ANALYSIS: GUN WOMAN is a great no-budget
for those who like exploitation movies and Japanese films like TOKYO GORE
POLICE and THE MACHINE GIRL.
