This film is so goddamn awesome. And its followup is even cooler. I can only aspire to be as badass as Scorpion.

I just caught 'Female Convict Scorpion' at NFT on Friday and was suitably impressed.

I haven't seen this but see it's getting an official DVD re-release next month here in UK.

Meiko Kaji. That's all need be said. With her other iconic role in Shurayukihime, I see her influence on every other heroine-fatal in so many action flicks, with no real attribution, and maybe because there's no comparison - she was the first and best.
