Movie Reviews

A crude but revealing picture to watch!
Hiram Gomez Pardo | Valencia, Venezuela | 03/26/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

After the demolishing success of Death Wish, Charles Bronson in his accustomed style of elegant roughness, makes a convincing role as a detective who has to face with a gang who exploits teen girls to prostitution. The script is credible and shows us the dark side of the moon. Bitter and dark humor are intermingled with the expected doses of violence in these usual cases, but the result is satisfactory.

If you realize the last sequence you will understand you agree with Bronson in that sardonic smile. eye for eye.
Paaarrrrrty......Don't Let Your Momma Know!

"This is an extremely ugly film. Extremely ugly. I'm surprised that Bronson himself wasn't a little leery about doing this. This film shows us an all too real, filthy business that goes on right under our noses, in many cities throughout the world: Child prostitution. My only gripe with this film is that the problem is there, but the film doesn't seem to have any message or solution, but merely uses child prostitution as new subject matter for a Bronson action flick. This makes the film seem much, much sleazier because the subject matter is treated so cheaply. I mean, I cannot believe the stuff that happens to the young Japanese girl in the film! But all in all I like to view this film in the mindset that I view all Bronson films, and that makes it much more enjoyable. I give this four stars alone for the scene where Bronson makes a pimp swallow his wristwatch, then casually sets fire to his car. I'm not sure if I've ever laughed harder. He does have some great lines too. There's a great scene where he storms in on a porno film being shot and just beats the snot out of everyone. Bronson's about 70 years old here! It's great! Do I recommend? Yes, just know what you're going to see in this. The only solution this movie has to this horrible problem is that you can kill a pimp with a giant claw hanging from a crane."
Funniest 80s Bronson flick ever, and one of his best Cannon
Zach Bibeault | Minneapolis, MN | 06/17/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There's a trend with Charles Bronson's 80s Cannon flicks: the more that came out, the funnier each one got. The first one, 1982's 'Death Wish II' was a morbid and dark flick that had basically zero humor throughout its sleaze-soaked run time. As sequels 'Death Wish 3' and 'Death Wish 4: The Crackdown' came out, the unintentional humor was hitting all-time highs. For me though, it's 'Kinjite: Forbidden Subjects' that remains the funniest Bronson vehicle of the 80s. Oh, and it's a great action flick in its own right too.

The hilarity comes from a myriad of things: hilarious thugs that Bronson fights, risible dialogue (after walking in on a man about to violate a teen prostitute with a dildo, the man yells "YOU CAN'T COME IN LIKE THAT AND DISTURB SOMEONE'S PRIVACY YOU S.O.B.!" - both the dialogue and the manner of its delivery is hilarious), and many other things such as an editing mistake in a drive-by shooting scene where the same black man is shot and killed THREE TIMES IN A ROW. Bronson throws people through (cardboard) dressers, forces pimps to swallow their watches (then sets their car on fire while they're choking), violates johns with their own sex toys (then wonder if it'll cause him to "lose his pension"), and in one scene, upon busting a hotel porn shoot, fights a guy who does a battle roar and makes the funniest battle face ever before getting owned by Bronson (a screenshot of this is my Amazon profile pic, check it out).

As you can see, the main value in this piece is its ridiculousness, the kind of unintentional awesomeness that is so common in 80s action vehicles. BUT the film stands its own as an action vehicle as well, although the body count is tiny and it's slower at time it's still a take-no-prisoners Bronson flick all the way.

In short, fans of Charles Bronson and 80s action need to check this one out. Though most Bronson fans claim 'Death Wish 3' to be his most unintentionally funny 80s Cannon flick, my pick for that honor is 'Kinjite: Forbidden Subjects." Good stuff."
This is the BEST MOVIE EVER -- We need more Charles Bronsons

"I'm sure that the subject disturbs a lot of men whom, well, would rather see it legalized to have relations with kids. But as a victim of child molestation, this movie always gave me a wonderful feeling of peace... justice... the long overdue retribution criminals deserve.

I give it 100 times 100 stars. Society needs more positive messages like the one Charles Bronson sent out to the criminals."
