Yo Yo Sexy Girl Cop Review
The FilmTo make a film is something I regard as a very noble achievement. I admire anyone who chooses to give it a go while a moral coward like myself hides in front of the TV. I know that it's easier to criticise than to dust yourself down and just make a movie, and I try to remember this when writing about them, especially the small no budget ones where discouragement is in plentiful supply from know it all types like myself.
Throughout the 77 minutes I spent with this film, lots of thoughts went through my head. I started to think about cleaning the oven, I noticed a portion of the carpet that needs some more hoovering, and my imagination rushed and rushed to give my intellect something to do to replace the cultural and entertainment vacuum I was experiencing. Anything became a distraction, and eventually I realised that the only potentially useful thing about this film is the tremendous power it would give our secret services in torturing terror suspects. Just imagine that we caught Osama Bin Laden and we needed to get details of his network out of him, I guarantee that the world would be a safer place after just 30 minutes of Yo Yo Sexy Girl Cop.
Dredging my mind for other positives, I suppose the fact that it exists and has possibly made someone money provides hope for anyone who thought film-making is all about filming in your garage and convincing women to take their tops off. By the way, a lot of this film clearly takes place in someone's garage, and please note, budding directors, that simply putting different people in the same location will not convince anyone that the space meant for your 2CV is actually a police station, a crime hideout, and a bedroom.
Yo Yo Sexy Girl Cop is bottom feeding useless crap.
Transfer and SoundShot badly using cheapo methods, the transfer here is quite good considering the low budget origins. The picture is reasonably sharp and the contrast is above average. The colour treatment has a slightly yellow hue to everything but again I would put this down to the source materials more than anything else. I noticed a bit of aliasing and some compression artefacts in darker sequences but overall the video quality is as strong as could be expected.
Discs and Special FeaturesAn unsubtitled making of featurette that last 14 minutes and takes place in a production office is the key extra. I can only dream of what the genius film-makers are saying and suggesting to the cast, and in this respect I didn't mind not being able to understand the intentions behind this turd. There's a trailer which is very nearly as dull as the film itself, and finally a slide show telling you about other much more interesting releases from Cinema Epoch. This takes up the single layer region free disc.
SummaryI requested to cover this film as this kind of sub genre thing usually floats my boat, but I ask that you learn from my experience and purchase Sukeban Boy or one of those excellent Nikkatsu releases from our fine sponsors instead. I've included links to our reviews of those fine films in the side panel and do make use of them. With respect to Yo Yo Sexy Girl Cop, don't even think about it unless masochism is your thing.
