freaky. Extremely violent. This Japanese femme fatale was
the leading villain in the first "The Punisher" movie from 1989
opposite Dolph Lundgren. I'm a HUGE Dolph Lundgren fan.
Most of the bad guys he fights in his movies don't seem that scary to
me. He's big, fights like a buffalo, and looks more intimidating
than his adversaries. That's what makes him an ideal action
hero. However, Kim Miyori's Lady Tanaka character is one of the
few villains in Dolph films that makes me think "How is he going to get
the better of this one?
She's absolutely evil!". Of course he does, because it wouldn't
be a great action movie if the villain didn't get killed, but it isn't
without some doing. Kim Miyori is a wonderful actress and makes
the leader of the Japanese mafia extremely convincing. Knives,
gunplay, poisons, martial arts...Lady Tanaka is proficient in all
fields. When she dons her Geisha girl disguise in the climactic
final moments of the film, she is especially frightening. She's a
larger-than-life villainess who gets the "Blair's Bad Girls" seal of
Kim Miyori as "Lady Tanaka" with Zoshka Mizak as "Tanaka's Daughter"
