Review

STRIP MAHJONG: BATTLE ROYALE is 'sex­ploita­tion' prod­uct, pure and sim­ple, but it has a cer­tain low-rent clev­er­ness and it doesn t waste any time. If you re look­ing for a racy quickie, this flick has its own kinky sense of per­son­al­ity that dis­tin­guishes it amongst the straight-to-video 'sex­ploita­tion' pack --Schlockmania!

Whether you want to see a fetish film with cheesy horror overtones, a black comedy, or just a weird little flick that finally made this hardened sleaze reviewer actually turn Japanese for the first time in hundreds of films, this take on Mahjong gone wrong will tug at your male sensibilities. --Horror View

If you thought CUBE and BATTLE ROYALE would've been a lot better with topless women fighting for survival instead of random Canadians or school kids, then feast your eyes on 'Strip Mahjong: Battle Royale.' --Mondo Digital

What can I say about "Strip Mahjong: Battle Royale"? I could write a book. Won't. But could. First, this is the ultimate "guilty pleasure" movie - it is really a bad film in most ways, with little redeeming value - except that it is an outrageous hoot!

The premise is simple - four beautiful girls wake up in this "bunker-like" place (low production value here) that is really an underground TV/video/web/online studio where a life or death game show is played called "Strip Mahjong: Battle Royale" Ha! So the four girls play mahjong against each other and when they lose they have to strip off clothes and when they are naked - they die.

End of plot.

Oh, but what I LOVE about this movie is that there is so much more than that!

First - all four Japanese girls are gorgeous, along with the girl who is the game show of death "hostess." And she is, by the way, some weird girl! She keeps saying - "Nyah Nyah Nyah" which is translated in the subtitles as: "Nyah, Nyah, Nyah"!!!! I ain't gotta clue! And when they bring her into the game as a player, things really get crazy! (She cheats!)

but the real treat in this movie is the surprise - this movie's wit and sarcasm. And that comes from the "host" and his silent, S&M leather-masked sidekick. They are a riot.

I won't go into too much detail, but just watch it closely, - watch the pantomime of the silent sidekick, listen to the "host" and his comments during the game.

Of course, the "point" of this movie is to watch these very lovely young Japanese women undress one by one. The nice thing is, the movie goes way beyond just this element and actually makes it a fun, and demented flick!

[STRIP MAHJONG: BATTLE ROYALE - (2011) - Widescreen - Japanese w/ English subtitles - 77 minutes - Directed by Mark P. Forever (?)] As I've stated many times in my reviews, when calibrating soft-core movies, one has to use a different yardstick to review and rate them. That yardstick has to be adjusted again when evaluating American vs. European vs. Asian soft-core (I personally prefer the Euro and Asian flicks - the American ones are usually idiotically juvenile, or patched into horror/torture flicks, which I personally don't get at all). The unstated but ultimate purpose of these flicks is not only to entertain but to stimulate the viewer, and the best do both. But there are very few that succeed. If you don't believe this, I envy your naiveté. But there are a few, thankfully, like the recent 'Tokyo Train Girl' series (Vol.'s 1, 2 and 4 especially - read my reviews of all four for specs). This flick, however, isn't one of them...

The budget here is non-existent; the entire film takes place in one dark dungeon/cell, and the cast is comprised of 5 women and 2 guys. The chicks are forcibly there to play strip-Mahjong to pay off gambling debts, and wear shock collars that are controlled/detonated by the deliriously depraved MC's toy ray gun (no joke). For those of us who revel in Asian exploitation, it gets a bit tedious waiting for things to get underway, and by that I mean undressed. Eventually, and thankfully, the girls are shamefully compromised as we watch them in the throes of the bizarre and bitchingly boring game of mahjong - it might help your entertainment quotient if you knew something about this game, but I'm assuming if you're not Asian or in a retirement community that's highly unlikely. Besides, we signed on only for the nudity, not the sportsmanship on display.

The movie delivers for its title. Finally somebody has combined my two favorite things, Japanese women forced to strip and mahjong. Why did it take so long? Four women, a lawyer, teen idol, uptown girl, and a fretter are taken and forced to play mahjong for their clothes and their life to the eyes of a pay per view Internet audience. These women were selected due to the mahjong debt they have ran up. Equipped with deadly zap collars there is no escape for the women.

The women " strip down to their souls" in a slow fashion with the first nudity happening 30 minutes into the film. Mahjong looks like a game similar to gin rummy except played with tiles. Perhaps the main criticism of the film is that it carefully avoids full frontal nudity.

Guide: F-bomb, sex/rape, groping, girl/girl action, whipping, and of course 5 girls going topless.

On the face of it this should be just another Japanese B-Movie in the soft porn genre. To an extent that's what it is. In the film four women have to play mahjong and if they lose they have to strip and if they lose all their clothes then they are killed. The film makes do avoid total nudity. In an unexpected twist the characters of the unfortunate women are well developed and their stories and reasons for being in this mess are plausible. The acting and script are much better than you might expect. The problem is that I can't tell if this was intentional or not. I suspect it was as the strip scenes and partial nudity are filmed in such a way to minimise any titillation at all. The front man character, the expert card player, and the be-thonged enforcer are wonderfully overdone and add a touch of levity. So this is an unexpectedly cerebral film which just happens to have topless women in it. Strange, very strange.
