Smokey & The Bushido: Dekotora 2 (2009/aka Rinko Eighteen/Sentai Filmworks DVD)

Picture: C+ Sound: C- Extras: D Main Program: C+

Nami is the hottest Japanese female truck driver around, and for the right price she will deliver anything. She is the Queen of the Road in her neon pimped-out truck, but has she met her match when an old high school rival, Ayano. Now turned policewoman, she pulls her over! As they renew their friendship, Nami finds her cargo was caught up in drug bust when she discovers she was unknowingly helping to shipping drugs for the Yakuza. Now, two old rival must set aside their differences to catch the real criminals in Hideo Tojo's Smokey & The Bushido: Dekotora 2 (2009/aka Rinko Eighteen).

Nami is a bad ass truck driver that can kick anybody's ass. Ayano is a strict policewoman busting anyone who breaks law and speed limit. Both of them are former rival gangsters/delinquents. Ayano is after the man who killed her husband when he was infiltrating the mob. Nami is forced to take care of Ayano's son, but when Ayano goes missing it it is up to Nami to save the day.

Be warned... there is a lot of nudity, violence, sex, swearing and disrespect for the traffic laws. This was a B rated movie that makes fun of delinquent female trucker drivers and policewoman as loose and crude women, both of them will do anything to get what they want (usually sex).

The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image is not bad for what looks like an HD shoot, but I was disappointed with the Japanese and English dub lossy Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo versions of the audio. Weak and a little off, they never worked too well, though I still liked the Japanese track a little better. Extras include trailers.
