THE GREAT CHASE is a typical Japanese action flick starring Etsuko "Sue" Shihomi, the actress best known for appearing in the SISTER STREET FIGHTER series movies. This one's very much in the mould of those films, with very slim plotting and Shiomi playing a mistress of disguise seeking to take down the criminal organisation responsible for the death of her father. It's wild, wacky stuff in a very '70s way, with a surprising emphasis on sleaze and depravity at times; the rape scene with a guy in a bear suit makes for very uncomfortable viewing. On the plus side, the action is staged with gusto and a lot of fun, I only wish there was more of it in the second half of the movie. Some great comic book style characters are introduced early on - the female wrestler, the bald mystic with super might, the card thrower, the Native American (!) - only to randomly disappear from the screen later on, which is a shame. Still, the high rise climax makes up for the deficiencies somewhat.
A female plays a race car driver lends her services to the Japanese Secret Service. She goes in pursuit of a cartel of drug runners and assorted Japanese Yakuza types.
