Editorial Reviews

Silver, aka Jun Shirogane, seeks a group of criminals called "Paradise", who killed her family, leaving her an orphan. With her mind twisted by rage, she inflicts vengeance on everything corrupt. The end of the century holds more turmoil than piece, and Silver finds herself constantly in battle, defending herself with her wrestling techniques or by use of her blade.

I’m a huge fan of Takashi Miike. This amazing director cranks out 3 or 4 movies a year. Some don’t quite work, some are really good, and some are masterpieces. All are interesting, often perverted, sometimes deep and heartfelt, and usually different than anything you’ve seen before. His older work tends to be his best, but there’s gold in his new stuff too. If you hate crazy stuff, if you hate perversion, if you hate BDSM, if you hate violence, if you hate wild journeys filled with imagination and daring, if you prefer milk and honey to top notch absinthe, then you won’t enjoy most of his films. Too bad for you.

Silver is a “little” film that, oddly, ends just when you’re really getting into it. The story is wild, the perversion is copious, and it’s a jolly good ride. There’s nothing else like it. Not his best, but it’s still tremendous fun. I’ve watched it four times, and I’ll certainly watch it again and again as the years roll by (I notice new things on every viewing). Since I can’t give it 4.5 stars (which would be my preference), I’ll go with the full 5 due to its over the top originality and peddle to the metal insanity.

His best stuff: the Dead or Alive trilogy (exciting and crazy), Zebraman 1 and 2 (wonderful), Gozu (surreal), Happiness of the Katakuris (delightful), Rainy Dog (profound and moving), Visitor Q (bizarre and perverse). In fact, you can’t go wrong with any of his yakuza films (he’s a true master of that genre).

The film opens with a Jun Silver's (buxom Atsuko Sakuraba) family being killed after a Japanese Gunnar Hansen impersonator exits the house with a bloody chainsaw. This was pretty good stuff, but that was the last we saw of him.

Silver knows karate, coin tossing, "wrastling" FBI stuff, and how to take a shower. She is recruited into the Japanese Secret Service by a former lover to fight perverse criminals outside the law. Their cover will be woman's wrestling which allows them to travel the country without suspicion, although she only had the one fight before dominatrix Nancy finds her out. The bad guy fighting was haphazard as was Dart, Agent 004 who protects her to kill her.

The film appeared to be some kind of kinky soft porn. It included S&M action, hot wax, upskirts, spanking and urination. Silver wears black and silver spandex while fighting. The genitals are pixilated out, including the one being beaten. The kinky subject matter is more suited for hard core porn. You've been warned.

Sex and nudity. Thank you Atsuko.

I heard that this was not that good of a Miike movie so I wanted to find out for myself. I thought it was not bad. It was not to easy following the story all the way through but it kept my interest. The end seems to let you believe that they were going to make another one that never happened. As a Miike movie goes they are all different and I would have to say the same here with Silver. I still liked it.

It seems people have very strong feelings about the Japanese director Takashi Miike. I'm of the camp who believes he's brilliant, but after viewing this I'm beginning to have my doubts.

A female secret service member infiltrates a Lady's Pro Wrestling Team to try and bring down a woman who is using her womanly ways (and then some, if you know Miike) to gain power and corrupt government officials.

It has some interesting fight scenes that are kind of ninja-esque, but I almost cried the whole way through -- it's that* bad*. If you want to see Miike in full form, purchase Ichi the Killer which will establish you as a Miike lover or haterist. However, no matter how* much* you like* Miike, do not get withing seeing distance of this film. If I could unwatch one film, it would be this one. It's that* bad.
