Editorial Reviews

The Ginza Butterfly Nami (Meiko Kaji, returning to her role from the original) is back in a new story that finds her on the hunt for Hoshiden, the man who killed her gambler father when she was only a child. Arriving in Tokyo, Nami takes a job as a hostess in a swank Ginza club, all the while combing the back-alleys and gambling dens for news of Hoshiden s whereabouts. Local street entrepreneur Ryuji (the Street Fighter himself, Sonny Chiba) joins her in the search, and eventually in a bloody raid on the yakuza headquarters where Hoshiden now living incognito, under an assumed name is hiding out.

Meiko Kaji and Shinichi Sonny Chiba are two names that should get any Yakuza film fans going!
If not - stop reading now!

Considering this sequel to WANDERING GINZA BUTTERFLY was made only a year after the first, the difference could not be any more obvious both stylistically and for the compelling performance of Meiko.
The first film was a very conservatively directed, by-the-numbers effort with a sub-par storyline focusing on pool of all things. In SHE-CAT we have our ice-cool kimono-clad queen slashing her way through the corrupt gambling dens of Tokyo on a quest to find her father's killer. Sure the story-line is familiar to genre fans but with Meiko supported by Sonny we get a powerhouse finale that's worth the wait!

Certainly, director Kazuhiko Yamaguchi's stylish flourishes are let down occasionally by some extremely risible wardrobe choices for some of the supporting cast (but it's the 70s so we'll just let that slide... maybe...) and there's probably one too many comic-relief characters (one of which serves no purpose than to to die with a funny line of dialogue!) but overall he balances the slapstick and the melodrama well and gets in some very nice shots.

Sonny turns in a fun performance as a stuttering small-time Yakuza on the way up and most of his storyline is played for laughs (check out his reaction when the hayseed Yakuza introduces himself while he's in the bath) but the scene-stealer is of course Meiko.
