Nah man, wasn't a matter of offense, my guilty conscience just demanded I explain my reasoning for pirating. ;)

So I went ahead and purchased "Deniel", and I know, but I feel like supporting these guys is the only way they'll keep making these movies. However, this one is one of the worst ones I've seen, while having some things I like as well. I like when the Pink Ranger makes a big body pile in the zako's dressing room, and the part where she infiltrate's the villain's base at night and takes out some zako in stealth fashion. I like the version of the new costume with the panty hose and boots. I also like that the girls were not wearing gloves, as I hate gloves and would rather see the girl's pretty hands. However, the bunny outfits were terrible, and the regular outfit with bare legs and shoes was not very appealing, especially with such average looking girls.

First off, Whoever edited this (did the director have a part in this?) did a lousy job. Random cuts, sequences out of order or plain missing, or the really awkward part in "Deniel" where the Pink Ranger fights the henchwomen on the staircase, though they're at the bottom of the steps, suddenly there's a bunch of defeated zako all over the staircase. Another issue with this director is he almost always has the girls squirming on the ground.

It's not all the director's fault... The girls chosen for this movie are not very good. I recognize a couple from older movies (I think), but the others' looks and acting (fighting) abilities leave much to be desired. Some look at the camera often, some don't knwo what to do when they are defeated, they just kind of sit there most of the time. Some are also not very hot, and then there is that one girl...

I agree with what everyone said, that one girl who is very, very skinny is distracting, and essentially ruins every scene she's in. The scenes I like pretty much do not feature her. What really annoys me, is that this movie featured a lot of defeated henchwomen in the background while the action continued around them, which is an element I LOVE, but the really skinny girl is almost always there and is just *instant turn off* for me.

The director of this one also directed Bolero and Platinum Tango, both of which are not my favorites either. Bolero was a step in the right direction when it came out, as it was the first Female Combatants movie in years, and it was fresh, new outfits, different scenarios. In retrospect, later movie were better, like Bolero 2, Bandobure 2, the Death March movies, etc... I didn't like Platinum Tango at first, coming after the great ones like Bandobure 2 and the Death March movies, though I warmed up to many scenes, most of it was worthless for me, the director had too many elements I didn't like, or things I like he didn't exploit enough of. I don't remember who directed Bandobure 3, the one with the school students, but that one was garbage.

I think the best FC movies since the re-launch are Bandobure 2, Death March Part 1. They should get the directors for those back.

The director of Bolero, Plantinum Tango and this new "Deniel" always has things that I really don't like or make me very frustrated, this includes the older movies before the 2012 re-launch. I will not support his version of Female Combatants movies any more, unless he changes up his style (which I doubt he will).

Please GIGA/Zen Picures, have other directors make the Female Combatants movies!!!

So I went ahead and purchased "Deniel", and I know, but I feel like supporting these guys is the only way they'll keep making these movies. However...

I agree with most comments here: the low quality of the latest movie and all... specially about the anorexic girl! God I was afraid she'd shatter a bone every time she was in a scene!
I reckon it may sound awkward in this kind of scenario! We enjoy watching scores of female soldiers getting mercilessly slaughtered by pretty much everyone, heroes and villains! One thing is fiction another thing is real life.

I noticed a detail nobody has mentioned here: they have tried something almost never seen before apart from one brief instance in the Tango movie. They added digital blood in 3 brief sequences:

GIRO-24_02.mkv_001479604.jpg GIRO-24_02.mkv_001479873.jpg GIRO-24_02.mkv_001480007.jpg GIRO-24_02.mkv_001487245.jpg GIRO-24_02.mkv_001487514.jpg GIRO-24_02.mkv_001643268.jpg GIRO-24_02.mkv_001652752.jpg GIRO-24_02.mkv_001653013.jpg GIRO-24_02.mkv_001654680.jpg GIRO-24_02.mkv_001656382.jpg GIRO-24_02.mkv_001656515.jpg

This adds a lot to "realism" in my opinion, and I wish they'd do it more often!

Here's that one scene in Tango where the (digital) blood of a very pretty Zako is mercilessly spilled:
GPTM-28_01.mkv_001834396.jpg GPTM-28_01.mkv_001835694.jpg GPTM-28_01.mkv_001835827.jpg GPTM-28_01.mkv_001835864.jpg

There is some good here and there in Deniel too: they tried to come up with new forms of death to inflict upon the hapless Zako, actually: garotting, break their spines against logs, being thrown off cliffs... and so on.
At least they don't keep cloning the same situations, like the almost universally hated rape/massacre scene by a grotesque evil moster!
A boss disciplining her troops when they fail is okay... but those mass murder scenes were plain laughable!

By the way... one thing I loved in the Tango movie was the Bee-boss scenes! After a failure the new commander orders her troops to take her out. They bravely attack but the Bee-boss responds shooting poisoned darts from her breasts. In a matter of seconds 2 dozens of combatants are stopped in their track and lie twitching on the ground. Once more the price of a the struggle for power within the evil organization is paid with the lives of the expendable Female Combatants.
The Bee-boss survives but is again attacked: she decides to blow herself up when surrounded, thus taking with her in death 8 more Zako of the rival faction!
The same fate awaits the new boss, though... after her strategy fails too, she is chased by a group of combatants, and after having effortlessly butchered a large number of them, she only succumbs to a kamikaze attack, I which she and nearly a dozen of attackers blow up in flames.

Back to topic... AmazonShark bought Deniel to support the future production of these movies. I partly disagree: I pirated this one... like all the others. Then I bought the few I deemed worth the price only! Just buying them all regardless of their quality conveys a false message to Giga and Zen: that we're ready to purchase pretty much anything... garbage included.
If we only buy the good ones, they'd hopefully take the hint and start making less... but good movies only!

I agree that buying every movie sends the wrong message, but up until Platinum Tango, GIGA/Zen Pictures track record was pretty good. The last 3 movies (Tango, Bandobure 3, and Deniel) are some of the worst and most frustrating to watch, though Tango has many redeeming qualities that make up for it, but I enjoyed the bonus outtakes/alternate angles stuff more enjoyable than the actual movie itself. And I alo had a problem with them featuring very little action with the girls in the full body suit costumes.

I'm definitely going to be more cautious with these Female Combatant movies.

Do they not know that we're all pretty much in it for the fights? Not sure what anyone else here or similar forums likes about these movies. All those other elements with monsters, rape scenes, etc I can do without.

Pic #3 here is a bit of a "Come ooooon" for me. Who falls like that?

I always think that stuff is dumb. They do that kinda stuff in almost every movie, at least with the ones with this director.

Bandobure 2 and Death March Part 1 had better fight sequences, and more realistic defeats and falling naturally.

unfortunately that's the minority at this point, going off of posters on other forums + the direction nearly every single studio is going towards now. a weird turn of events.

That day just started for me as any other day. I just downloaded the 5th part of rayheng0595's upload at Akiba-Online, I got my beer, my popcorn and I was ready for some weird japanese sh*t.

Well, I never imagined I will be so accurate.

I was really hyped up for this, because Female Combatants Battle (AZGB-06) and Female Combatant Bolero 2 (GOMK-60) was pretty cool. In the latest one I really loved the simple red leotard of the girls, there was a lot of good and clever fight scenes (of course mostly are quite hideous with bad acting, but that's the beauty of it) and such, but this... I'm going to bo honest with you guys, I wasn't able to finish it. The movie was like when you expect your grandma for thanksgiving, but rather she showing off the damn SWAT kicks your door in shouting "GETONDDAFKNGRUUNDGEDDOWN". I felt this movie was nothing about just guilt tripping the viewers. "Oh, you like watching poor grils knocked out cold? Well, there ya' go as*hole, here's an unbelievably skinny girl and a couple fatty ones too, now how's you gonna enjoy that?" What will be the next, one of the girls will be pregnant or having cancer? Or both? I bet my life there is some weird fetish in Japan for watching very skinny girls having porn or something, but this was waaay too disturbing for me. When that golden mantis b*tch boss started humiliating that girl, I just ragequitted on the spot and went on watching Mythbusters on Discovery Channel to gain some good karma. I don't know what were they thinking but if they keep this road, maybe they should release like a non-japanese version of their movies what are not THAT fucked up... or they could now just start release a good movie with more fights, spending money on some good editor and focusing on battles rather than making half the screentime about weird plastic boars raping the pink ranger.

It's not like I don't recommend buying this movie, downloading this and using the free download slots was a waste! I rarely delete anything from my computer, but I shift+deleted the whole folder so fast like a zako getting knocked off from one hit. 8.7 out of 10 - IGN

The last 3 movies (Tango, Bandobure 3, and Deniel)

You know, I didn't mind Tango. The music was absolutely atrocious, like... worst singer ever, but the action was okay. I dug the quarry environment, it was a nice change (don't envy the girls having to fall on that stuff though). I only really enjoyed one or two fight scenes in the movie, though it did have the interesting "Internal Power Struggle" angle.

Something incredibly satisfying about watching two groups of zako pummel each other into submission. It was a more dynamic fight, I found. Girls went down on both sides, rather than just the heroes showing up and beating everyone down. It added a layer of unpredictability to the fight that I'd like to see expanded on in later videos; the full body-suit zako definitely had the upper hand, but still a few of them went down.

I'm also still a sucker for leotards. I'll watch any of them where they're wearing leotards... except Bolero 2, I avoid that one like the plague for some reason!

I haven't seen Bandobure 3 simply because, despite liking Bandobure 1 & 2, I just can't get into the full body suits they use. Because of this I just gave it a pass, sounds like I made the right decision. I need that bare-thigh V-cut uniform to properly enjoy them; it's a quirk in my interest, what can I say! Full bodysuits just don't scratch that itch, and without it I lose interest quickly.

As I mentioned, I warmed up to Tango, it does have a lot of scenes I enjoy, but the movie's best scenes don't come close to other movie's best scenes.

Also, for me, these GIGA/Zen Female COmbatants movies are getting swept under the rug by the big custom movie that's coming out soon from Amazon Warriors.

Due to be released Saturday, November 29

First of Dear Amazon Shark: Could you tell me how much is this amazon movie costs? I dont understand the credit system of the site and it demands a license which I dont want to share if I couldnt afford it.

I just watch some scenes from deniel and my guess is the producers just went to some street and ask whoever they could find. I am far away from the moral high ground but that girl clearly needs help. I really like the skirt outfits. The closer the zako looks like in the agent aike the better for me. But I couldnt enjoy it. I feel like doing a terrible thing.

It's about 1 Euro for every 10 points, so the Infiltration of the Amazon Army movie would be about 27 or 28 Euros, or close to 40 US dollars, which is usually how much the producer, Olaf Winter, charges for all of his multi-girl movies, like the Tribal War series.

I hope GIGA/Zen Pictures get their act together with the Female Combatants movies. There's already talk about a sequel to the Infiltration of the Amazon Army, and Olaf is up for it.

I can't access the newest Female Combatants movie from my country, and for the first timeever, it doesn;'t bother me.

--------------------------

I found a trailer for an action movie called "Concrete: Gangs of Union City".
It a Warriors style movie about a man who has to navigate through a city that's divided into numerous gangs to save his girlfriend.

Concrete: Gangs of Union City (2014) - Trailer on Vimeo

at the 1min markk, there looks like a female gang in the movie. although there's no other scene of them in the trailer, so i dont know if they take part in the action.

I hope this isn't one of those movies where the ONLY GOOD GANG in the city that helps the hero is the all-fermale gang.

I can't find any more info about the movie

-----------------------------

Only as single zako here.
Pete Winning and the Pirates.
Pirates attack the hero's yacht,. among them is 1 female pirates.
interesting of all the pirates, she seams to be the only one that's killed (shot in the head by a laser). the other guy seams to get shot in the hand and the leader is captures.

here's a compilation of scenes featuring the evil witch zako from the 2013 hk film Switch starring Andy Lau. Their demise scene starting at 12:33 is one of my favorites. The whole compilation is worth watching to see these sexy zako
