Movie Info

Based on a manga by Toru Shinohara, the Zero Woman series was a popular Japanese exploitation franchise of the 1970s, and it holds up strikingly well today. RED HANDCUFFS begins with female cop Rei (Miki Sugimoto), otherwise known as Agent Zero, seducing a Westerner who has been killing women with his sadistic sexual fetishes. Once she gets him back to the hotel room, however, she metes out her own brand of justice, of which her fellow cops do not approve, and Rei promptly lands in jail. Elsewhere, the maniacal criminal Nakahara (Tetsuro Tamba) is being let out of prison, and it isn't long before his brutal celebration leads to the kidnapping of an important politician's daughter. Charged with retrieving the girl without the media's knowledge, the police turn the job over to Rei. What follows is a melee of violence, sex, and violent sex, as Rei coolly does what it takes to get the job done.

Audience Reviews for Zero Woman


Good beginning, good ending, but the middle part is surprisingly quite dull. I mean, surprising considering how the movie sells itself as being a crazy hardcore explotation-fest of the highest order, which it is at parts, but just not enough. Miki Sugimito barely does anything most of the time, what a way to waste her i say.
