Sachiko (Miki Sugimoto) and her girlgang, the Red Helmet Gang, enter Kyoto on bikes and soon take over the turf of another girlgang simply by Sachiko beating their leader to a pulp. However, that doesn't sit well with Nakahara, the Yakuza boss of the district, and he has the girls bullied on a constant level. Nakahara's sister Nami (Reiko Ike) though, a typical lone wolf, soon becomes friends with Sachiko. Then Nakahara's gang moves in to beat the shit out of Sachiko and company, but they are saved by a lone man, boxer Ichiro (Michitaro Mizushima). Sachiko falls in love with him and they have a wild night of sex, but the next morning, Ichiro has to leave for some resort to train for his title fight. Sachiko just takes her gang and travels to the same resort ... where they bump into Nakahara and company again, who try their hands in the boxing business this time around, with a particular interest in Ichiro's coach's stable of boxers. Sachiko and the girls try to intervene, which only eventually leads to Ichiro being killed.

Sachiko and the girls return to Kyoto, and Sachiko has vengeance on her mind ... but she and Nami just run right into the arms of the Yakuza, and are brutally tortured. However, Nami's brother Nakahara has a change of heart, seeing his sister battered like this, and he helps them escape. Sachiko ultimately has her revenge on the Yakuza high brass by planting a bomb in her own car, then pretty much forcing them to steal it, and ... boom!!!

The end sees the Red Helmet Gang leaving Kyoto once more.

 

In general, I like Japanese girlgang movies from the 1970's, and I'm especially fond of Norifumi Suzuki's genre output - but this film does not find the director or the genre on one of his better days, basically because the whole plot is just too disjointed, seemingly just leading into no direction in particular and being interrupted by humourous interludes ever so often. This means the movie makes it hard to identify with either of its two protagonists (Sachiko and Nami) and to care too much for the story's buildup.

I wouldn't call the movie a total waste of time though, it's very stylishly executed, it's well acted, the girls are all pretty cute and there is enough nudity, action and torture involved to keep one entertained at least. It just could have been better ...
