Review by Donald Guarisco

The appeal of Sister Street Fighter will depend on one's tolerance for cheap chop socky efforts. It suffers from the same problems that plague many films of its ilk: the plotting is too ludicrous to be believed, the acting is completely over the top (especially that of the villains), and bad dubbing robs the film of what little emotional impact it might have had. However, viewers willing to put their brains on hold will be rewarded with some colorful action. Delivering plenty of kung-fu action, the films' highlights include the opening fight in a run-down restaurant and an impressive battle that Tina fights with a henchman on jagged rocks near a seaside cliff. It also benefits from an energetic lead performance by Sue Shiomi, whose screen presence is as impressive as her formidable martial arts skills. Ultimately, Sister Street Fighter isn't likely to have much appeal outside the world of kung-fu film cultists, but it delivers enough way-out action to please that audience.
