The Movie: Sister Street Fighter
1974, dir. Kazuhiko Yamaguchi
As adorable ass-kicker Tina Long, Sue Shiomi doesn’t have much of anything to do with Sonny Chiba in this just-barely-a-spin-off of the “Street Fighter” flicks, but who cares? She’s plenty awesome here, rescuing her undercover cop brother from the clutches of an evil drug ring. Helping her are a handful of martial arts specialists, including a group of ladies who, by all accounts, appear to be the Flintstones.
Some television programs aspire to greatness, using the medium's unique sense of intimacy to inform and entertain. Others waste their time trying to hook up one of the stars with some hot chick via text messaging. Tonight, we went with the latter. You're welcome.
