Overview

The underworld explodes into chaos after a car filled with female delinquents and bound for boarding school crashes, and the escaped girls eventually cross paths with some seriously sadistic thugs. Kosama is the boss of the gang, and with the law hot on their tales these girls seek refuge in the only place they know - Osaka's crime infested gangland. In this world of degenerate killers, the weak die quickly and the strong make money. To live another day means to make another dollar, and anything less than success is a death sentence. When Kosama and her girls show up on the scene, no one knows quite what to make of the vicious teenage vixens. But while they may be tough, the gang soon falls prey to the most brutal gang on the streets. Abused, debased, corrupted, and broken, the girls are forced to become the currency in a repugnant transaction. Now, as the debts begin to mount, girl boss Kosama sets out to settle the score by teaching her former captors a painful lesson in revenge. The fourth film in the popular pinky violence series, Girl Boss Revenge (originally titled Sukeban) was directed by Norifumi Suzuki, and stars Miki Sugimoto.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Girl Boss Revenge (better known in Japan under its original title, Sukeban) is a tight, fast-paced example of what makes the "pinky violence" genre appealing to fans of Japanese b-movies. The plot might be melodramatic and surreal in its sudden shifts of tone but that doesn't matter because this genre is driven by the iconic power of its stars and the style of its director. Thankfully, Girl Boss Revenge delivers on both fronts. Miki Sugimoto is fearsome enough to appear tough yet vulnerable enough to earn the viewer's sympathy and she brings her character's wild deeds to life with the kind of ease that befits a star. Reiko Ike offers the same charismatic intensity but her character allows her to be a bit more mysterious and she runs with this, turning what could have been another exploitation-film role into a tragic heroine worthy of an old-school Hollywood weeper. Most importantly of all, Norifumi Suzuki directs their adventures with a feverish intensity, piling on the sex and violence for the exploitation crowd (even mixing both with an eroticized beating that plays like an S&M tableau). However, he also takes the time to add moments of grace amidst the sleaze: the best is an unexpected flashback scene that features makes dazzling use of color in its transitions between past and present. In short, Girl Boss Revenge is a double-barreled blast of exploitation fun, Japanese-style. It might be a little too strong for the average viewer but Japanese exploitation fans will eat it up -- and it will also serve as an effective introduction to the "pinky violence" genre for novices.
