Product Description

Junko Miyazono returns as QUICK-DRAW OKATSU, the daughter of a swordmaster who takes on a power-hungry magistrate, in the second entry of the LEGENDS OF THE POISONOUS SEDUCTRESS series, directed by master filmmaker Nobuo Nakagawa (Jigoku, Snake Woman s Curse). Joined this time by Rui (Reiko Oshida), a wild young swordswoman, the two sexy avengers embark on a blood-soaked quest for revenge after Okatsu is raped and her father slaughtered by one of his assistants. Okatsu and Rui slash their way through dozens of evil men in order to settle the score with those who wronged them in this swordplay classic which features some of the best fight scenes of the series. Mixing a standard revenge plot with a healthy dose of modern-day sex and violence, the film proved to be a primary inspiration for some of the best female revenge sagas of the 1970s, including the Female Convict Scorpion and Lady Snowblood series. Co-starring the legendary Tomisaburo Wakayama (LONE WOLF AND CUB).

Be sure to collect the other two volumes in the LEGENDS OF THE POISONOUS SEDUCTRESS series FEMALE DEMON OHYAKU and OKATSU THE FUGITIVE for more action-packed female swordplay excitement!

His one conceit is his use of a two-story brothel set in a long, wide shot.
Thomas Raven
If you have to watch this one, take my word: There is definitely no need to sit through the third part of the series, which is pretty awful.
Bacchus
Sure it's sexy and exploitative, and yet it's also a serious good action flick, and it's Junko Miyazono in her glory days.

The second film in the Poisonous Seductress series has little in common with the first, except for its star, the lovely Junko Miyazono, and its writer, Koji Takada. The theme of a woman exacting revenge against heinous forces of evil is still here, but Miyazono plays a completely different character this time around. This sort of anthology series is unheard of in the west, and I've had a little bit of trouble wrapping my mind around the concept. My first experience with this kind of marketing (and that's really all it was) was the Shinobi No Mono series wherein Raizo Ichikawa played various ninja across the course of the series. The poisonous seductress series only spans three films, but in each one Miyazono plays a different character. Never mind that the second and third films have protagonists with the same name! WHAT? Never mind. I'm reviewing these as separate features, not as parts of a trilogy.

Quick-Draw is about a woman who was adopted by a widower who runs a local dojo. Her "brother" Rintaro sucks at swordplay and only wants to run off with his girlfriend, a fact which embarrasses her father. She's an ace with a blade but since she's a woman, her skills aren't as important to the family's pride as Rintaro's.

A local magistrate has his evil eyes set on Okatsu and he goes about getting her through any means necessary. Rintaro is framed for a crime he didn't commit, Okatsu is raped, and her father is tortured and killed. When she finally gets free, Okatsu, with the help of Rui, the cutest ninja girl you'll ever see, slashes her way to vengeance!

Okay, there's quite a bit of hyperbole there, but you get the idea. This movie is a hell of a lot of fun! It has beautiful women, good fights, and top notch performances.

What an exciting film. The characters of Okatsu and Rui duplicate the kinds of friendships one sees in buddy-buddy yakuza films, and it's great to see women taken just as seriously on their road to gory revenge. Sure it's sexy and exploitative, and yet it's also a serious good action flick, and it's Junko Miyazono in her glory days.

Second in series entry has great/fun with second banana teen slasher providing support for our lead's (perpetual) revenge. As Chris D points out in the commentary (always very low key but welcomed and insightful) these Legends films are stock plots made viable by fairly astute directing. This color offering, "Quick Draw," is a good place to start. It has all the cliches of the genre, yet it's still very watchable.

It doesn't matter if its east or west cinema,not too many people embrace a female lead character. This is not a bad film overall.
