SYNOPSIS from Sci-Fi Japan:
Kadokawa Pictures presents “the birth of a new erotic × young girl action movie!” with RED X PINK (赤×ピンク, Aka × Pinku), opening at the Kadokawa Cinema Shinjuku and other Japanese cinemas on February 22, 2014. Celebrating the 65th Anniversary of the company’s publishing imprint, Kadokawa Bunko, the film is adapted from the 2003 light novel written by Naoki Prize winner Kazuki Sakuraba and illustrated by Shin Takahashi.
RED X PINK is the story of four young women who participate in “Girls Blood”, an illegal mixed martial arts event held at an abandoned elementary school in Roppongi, Tokyo. Here, members of an underground fight club watch women in revealing cosplay outfits battle in an iron cage, night after night.
One of the fighters, Satsuki, suffers from gender identity disorder. Another, Chinatsu, came to “Girls Blood” after after fleeing from a life of domestic violence. Miko is a S&M queen who wears a blonde wig and bondage gear in combat. And innocent-looking Mayu is into Lolita fashion.
Their lives become increasingly complicated as Satsuki falls in love with a beautiful married woman, and Chinatsu’s abusive husband shows up with a savage hustler friend who has his own plans for the girls. Satsuki and her friends must now fight or face a terrible fate…
Director Koichi Sakamoto is a WAY different man of film nowadays. I mean, I’m astonished! The man has sure come a long way from his days with Alpha Stunts while working on Power Rangers and Mark Dacascos action vehicle Drive. And if his latest work is proof of nothing else (i.e. Travelers, Innocent Lillies), it concludes that the veteran stuntman and stunt coordinator has come into his own, with sexy, gorgeous women front-and-center and in on the action… and not just the usual…well…action.
