After seeing this with more understanding of the plot, I can say that this movie is in fact just as good as I thought in my original review. Perhaps even better.
I’m still gonna withhold one half-star though, for the garbage the movie puts Miyuki Ono through. It’s like they felt the need to balance the fact that the Madonna is a hard-drinkin’, nuts-kickin’ badass by having her groped and attacked at every turn.
Overall I still think this is one of the best in the series.
