Anyone else see this? Basically a live action version of Japanese animation.
A girl is traumatized and sent to an insane asylum by her evil stepfather. She pretends it is a mafia run brothel and that she has to be a dancer in a show. When things are ven worse than normal she falls into a deeper fantasy inside the first fantasy and she is a super tough leader of a band of lady soldiers on crazy missions.
It was the worst and best movie I have seen, at the same time.
The combat scenes in the deepest fantasies are completely off the deep end. What I enjoyed though was the mix of fantasy and accuracy.
For instance, the first fantasy battle with the full squad of beautiful women is set in an alternate WW1. The skies are filled with biplanes and triplanes, the "General" who is actually her spirit guide has a scoped 03 and after explaining that the Germans have reanimated their dead with steam and clockworks he uses it to dispatch a maxim gunner and his assistant who spew steam from the holes. The girls have M4s and MP5s and other modern gear.
It was so far off that the few realistic things were exciting to me.
overall, it reminded me of issues of HEAVY METAL magazine. I give it 5 stars for action, 5 stars for being a dark and twisted story and 3 stars for having to deal with the few annoying scenes that just bugged me.
I own firearms not to fight against my government, but to ensure I will not have to.
