Yo-Yo Sexy Girl Cop (2007) Review
(More customer reviews)Woopak the Thrill is about to lose all credibility and "fans"...
"Yo-yo Girl Cop" starred J-pop star Aya Matsuura as the beautiful Saki. That film was manga-inspired and while it was somewhat silly, it was action-packed and fun to watch. Aya Matsuura's film however, did fulfill any male fantasies about a hot Japanese girl in a sailor moon outfit. "Yo-yo Sexy Girl Cop" (aka. Sukepan deka: Bajin nemu= Moromie Saki) is a sexy spoof of that action packed film which starred Aya Matsuura. Director Daigo Udagawa seems poised to fulfill all male fantasies when he casts the Beautiful, ex-AV star/nude model Mihiro Taniguchi (Cruel Restaurant) as Saki Moromi, code-named agent "see-through panties"--do I have your attention yet?
Saki (Mihiro) is a beautiful high school girl secretly working for a secret agency as "special student" undercover cop. Her uniform includes a pair of see-through underwear. She is sent to investigate a prostitution ring in Takanoha high, in exchange, her mother who has been incapacitated is to be set free. Once there, Saki is picked on and bullied by other teenagers because of her former status as a "thug girl-boss". While attending school there, she becomes fond of a young man named Takuya and befriends the school hottie, Asuka (Rio Nakamura). Saki seemed poised to find happiness and becomes torn between love and duty. Fate intervenes and her new friend until her former classmate/prostitute Asuka is murdered while attending to a client. Saki takes on personal vengeance on those who run the prostitution ring who is the school's headmaster and a hot teacher named Reiko. Her weapon of choice is a deadly yo-yo and her battle cry is "I will never forgive you!"
To be honest, I really don't know how to approach this film. Heck, I don't even know why I'm reviewing it. Anyway, the film is fun--it is full of sexy humor and does have the usual elements of a "pink" film. The humor does remind me somewhat of the Korean sex-comedy "Sex is Zero" and its main premise is very similar to Yo-Yo Girl Cop. Oh, yeh, it did make me say "What the heck?" and did cause me to scratch my head a number of times. The film has teen issues omnipresent throughout: fitting in, meeting a boy and curiosity about sex. But the film also has the usual elements of "pink" violence such as vengeance and lost of innocence. The violence is toned down and is a step backward from The Machine Girl or the film with Aya Matsuura. So don't expect an ultra-violent movie.
Now the film's main draw has to be the abundance of sex and nudity. The nudity isn't full frontal as in The Glamorous Life of Sachiko Hanai but there is a good number of them. Mihiro, Rio Nakamura and the sexy teacher (don't know her name) are seen in their naked glory for quite a number of times and they're nicely shot. The sex scenes are quite graphic; they're better than the ones in late night cable but a step backward from actual hardcore stuff. The action (ahem) other than the sex, I mean are the fight scenes have a lot to be desired. All they involve is Saki using her yo-yo and flashing her see-through underwear.
"YO-YO SEXY GIRL COP" is a fun watch I supposed as long as one remembers exactly what he is watching. If you liked "Ikki Tousen" then this film may be for you. The film's plot is irrelevant and it is very obvious that all the effort is put in showcasing Mihiro`s beauty. (and Japanese prancing around, teasing with their short skirts). I often wonder just how Japanese filmmakers can make almost any film that comes to their mind--no one knows sleazy and exploitive films better than the Europeans and the Japanese. This film is just pure "guilty pleasure" and geared towards Mihiro's fans.
Definitely not for everybody but BEER or Sake will enhance its viewing experience.
Recommended with caution to fans of Japanese "pink" films and a rental to those who like "late night" cinemax. [2 ½ Stars]
