3.0 out of 5 stars A FISTFUL OF YEN July 12, 2004
By Sesho
Japan has always been fascinated by American Westerns and vice versa, the Western has been influenced by the Samurai movies of Kurosawa. The lone gunman or the lone samurai, what's the difference? Gun Crazy: A Woman From Nowhere is almost a direct homage to the films of Sergio Leone, in particular the Clint Eastwood trilogy which in turn were homages to Kurosawa.
The movie begins with two Japanese cops on the verge of being torn in half by wires connecting their arms and legs to two trucks. That's when we're introduced to Tojo, the crime boss that runs the town of Tsuson. Fast forward 15 years as a mysterious bounty hunter named Saki, played by the luscious, maybe too luscious, Ryoko Yonekura in her action film debut. She arrives on her motorcycle just in time to see two American soldiers execute a man for disappointing their boss Tojo. They shoot Saki's motorcycle as a warning. She makes friends with a mechanic to fix her bike and learns from him that the entire town and the bordering Amercian military base are controlled by Tojo. Saki has been hired to kill him. The only allies she has is the mechanic and the last policeman left in town, who just happens to be a drunk. When she learns Tojo is going to hijack a shipment of laundered money, to the tune of 2 million dollars, from the US forces, Saki decides to lay a trap.
Yes, Gun Crazy is a B-movie. You can tell they didn't have a lot of money to work with. Most of the fight scenes show close-ups of guns shooting or of facial expressions. The only shots they linger on are bullet impacts. Well, at least this way they didn't have to hire fight choreographers. In one scene it almost looks like someone else's leg comes off the screen and kicks for Yonekura.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun, modern Spaghetti Western with a twist July 19, 2004
By Michael
The story of "A Woman From Nowhere" is rather simple and pretty much adapted right out of a Eastwood Spaghetti Western: A mysterious stranger comes into a lawless town run by a kingpin and starts shooting up the place with few words spoken. Even the opening credits and music have that spaghetti feel: Sergio Leone and Ennio Morricone would be proud. The really interesting twists are that the stranger is a beautiful(!) woman, Saki (Ryoko Yonekura) on a Harley, and the location is in a small town somewhere in Japan.
In this actioner, there's a considerable amount of gunplay, some of it good, some predictable, and in other spots somewhat hokey, but it's a whole lot of fun. Ryoko handles her guns with believability and aplomb and gives the thugs their due. It wasn't as much of an acting challenge for her as it was a physical challenge, but she handled things exceptionally well. She shows off her considerable acting skills much more in Japanese dramas such as "Seikei Bijin" (Plastic Beauty) and as Otsu in the NHK drama, "Musashi"
I'd highly recommend film if you're a Ryoko Yonekura fan (which I adoringly am) and/or a "girls with guns" movie fan, and it does hold up to repeated viewings. To me, there's something eminently and inexplicably appealing about "girls with guns" movies like "La Femme Nikita" and "The Long Kiss Goodnight." And to have a Japanese supermodel like Ryoko starring in it as well is just gobs of icing on the cake.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's ok, but not a great movie December 3, 2012
By Eric
Verified Purchase
There are a handful of fun scenes, but overall it is a fairly predictable movie. More than a few things about it are highly unrealistic though and it portrays Americans in a very poor light. I didn't spend much for the movie but even so I feel like I spent too much on it.
