Editorial Reviews

A series of mad experiments by a deranged scientist have left a chaotic and desolate future world. The streets are willed with weapon-wielding zombies who are trained to form an undead army. Luckily for the few remaining human survivors there is also a pair of denagerous scantily clad women roaming the land whoa re dedicated to destroying all zombies.

Those who are familiar with "OneChanbara: Zombie Bikini Squad" the popular PS2/Xbox 360 video game in Japan would be familiar with "OneChanbara the movie" (2008, Hong Kong title: Chanbara Beauty) that starred bikini model Eri Otoguro. Well, this next movie isn't exactly a sequel but rather another interpretation of the video game. "OneChanbara 2: Vortex" (Hong Kong title: Chanbara Beauty: Vortex) has the same characters but a very different story from the first film. It now stars top pin-up model sexy Tejima Yuu as Aya, Akari Ozawa as Saki and hottie Rika Kawamura as Reiko. So do I have your attention yet?

In a post apocalyptic future when zombies dominate the Earth, Aya (Tejima Yuu) and Saki (Akari Ozawa) are two young women from the almost extinct Imichi clan. They travel Japan killing as many of the undead as they possibly can but it seems like there is no end in sight for their fight and they seemed destined to fight forever. A woman called Misery (Kumi Imura) enlists their aid to destroy Himiko, the mistress of the undead. The two agrees to aid Misery but instead find themselves in conflict with a group of human survivors being led by Aya's old friend Reiko (Rika Kawamura) and a young man called Ryo (Youhei Hoshina) who are protecting a child named Kei. Tricked and seduced by Himiko, Saki sides with the zombie queen on the condition that her parents be resurrected. Now, Aya must fight alone and try to save her sister...but what are the secrets of the Imichi bloodline and its relationship to Ryo's bloodline?

"OneChanbara Vortex" is a low budget affair and is aimed to those used to Japanese filmmaking.

3.0 out of 5 stars SISTER ACT September 8, 2013

This is a zombie movie based on a video game. There isn't much plot, just blood. Aya (bikini girl on cover) and her half sister Saki (school girl outfit) go after the Himiko, the zombie leader. Saki co-operates with Himiko so she can resurrect her dead parents.

The zombies are of various degrees with Himiko looking and talking like a normal person. Most are foot dragging zombies who suddenly engage in various marshal arts when they attack. Aya goes into a berserker mode when she gets blood on her, although she is covered with dried blood for much of the film. The sword play and blood splatter had that "Kill Bill" feel to it, but in all honesty the movie doesn't measure up.

English subtitles.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. Just pretty girls killing zombies.
