Zeiram 2 (Japan 1994)

Rating: ***
Director: Keita Amemiya
Cast: Yuko Moriyama

A direct ripoff/remake of the original "Zeiram". This time, Iria, Bob, and a new sidekick named Fujikuro are tracking down a priceless relic when a new Zeiram unit shows up and traps them in "the zone." Once again, Kamiya and Teppei stumble into the situation and a furious battle ensues between Iria and Zeiram. Production-wise and plot-wise, not as good as the original, but Yuko Moriyama's performance is GREAT. This is what female action cinema is all about. She is absolutely stunning to watch and saves the film from being too tedious and corny.
