A rip off of Terminator in which some evil villain from the future sends a killer cyborg to the year 2009 to kill a nerd who is supposed to be makind´s only hope, but some lady from an ancient past who can see the future, decides to send a ninja to the year 2009, to protect the nerd and save the world… And that ninja was no other than the gorgeous Asami, whom 11 years ago was at the top of her reign as queen of V-cinema, kicking butts and saving the day from evil Cyborgs and boredom.
Directed by Jiro Ishikawa, The film is a really low budget product with cheap special effects and low production values, in which they managed to make a very good looking product (if you are not very demanding, of course).
However, the action scenes are very well made, being one of the strongest points of this bizarre feature. The story balances between being a homage to James Cameron´s popular saga, blatantly stealing elements from it, and being a a martial arts fantasy feature, filled with big doses of spicy erotism. And although of all its obvious flaws and the lack of originality, the final result is really fun and enjoyable.
Asami plays 3 different characters from three different epoques. What I most admire from her as an actress is that she is not just a great action heroine but she also has a gift for comedy and even in movies like this, she was able to play it…Big Fan of her forever…
Movie fans around the world still moans for her retirement.
