5.0 out of 5 stars excellent comedy crime film-Oshima and Nishikawa's best, October 26, 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Outlaw Brothers [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Frankie Chan is a master car thief. Yukari Oshima is the cop out to get him. The problem? They may be falling in love. Will they be able to resolve their differences and live happily ever after or will the frightening Michiko Nishikawa just shoot them both dead? A very entertaining comedy crime romance film with truly magnificent martial arts mayhem. This is the film that justifies the Oshima cult. It is very probably the best thing she has ever done. More's the pity that since then she has been relgated to low budget philipino pap. It is also easy to see the fascination with Nishikawa especially when she plays a villainess. It is a pity that the two were never paired again. Just another example of great talent and possibilities going unrealized. The Outlaw Brothers is not the stereotypical kung fu action flick. The acting, plot and dialogue are all clever and first rate. The nature of the film actually makes it a good film to watch with your girlfriend. It is, for all intents and purposes, a chick flick. The action is predicated on the romance subplot with the two female characters driving the action. A perfect introductory film for the guy trying to get his girl into Hong Kong action. Only drawback? Ghastly subtitles that do hurt the film since part of it's pleasures lie in it's snappy dialogue. Highly recommended. It doesn't get much better.
