Female Prisoner Scorpion: #701's Grudge Song
Directed by Shun'ya Itô
The final film in the series, #701's Grudge Song (from director Yasuharu Hasebe; RETALIATION, MASSACRE GUN), shows a gentler side of Scorpion. When Nami falls in with Kudo, an ex-radical suffering from physical and psychological trauma caused by police torture, the pair become political rebels. Contains strong language, violence and gore.
Once again on the lam, Nami becomes a political rebel.
Cast: Meiko Kaji, Rie Yokoyama, Yayoi Watanabe
Great as always!!
my kinda movies thanks
Thank you, Shudder. Never heard of this movie series until I saw them on here. Now I'd consider them classics and some of my all time favourite films. Beautifully crafted and creative shots from start to finish.
Not quite as strong as the first three.
Probably the weakest in the series. Maybe it's because Scorpion has to share so much screen time with a male sidekick or maybe it's because an innocent dies, but the mission of vengeance seems very unfocused here. The physics of the final "escape" set a bit questionable as well. So the first two films are the best, the third is interesting, and the fourth sort of limps to a close.
