Wonder Women (1973)

A multi-racial gang of ladies with skimpy clothes, big hair and bigger guns is running amok in Manila – kidnapping athletes and skinny-dippers left, right and centre. When they nick a Jai Alai player, hero Mike Harber (Hagen) is called in. Hooked up with a sidekick jeepney driver (denim-clad Vic Diaz), Harber winds up on the island lair of transplant artiste Dr Tsu (Nancy Kwan). “Her genius and her talent transcends the question of human morality,” says her debonair sales manager (Sid Haig) and Tsu’s brain transplant techniques and stock of body parts are the key to longevity. With a labload of flashing, bipping and swirling things, brain sex, a high-speed downtown jeepney chase and an army of Filipino warrior gals enthusiastically belting the crap out of people, Wonder Women is a load of fun. And that’s before Dr Tsu’s mutant test subjects escape their cells! The ending – Harber, a blonde and another all-female hit squad – is a reminder that Ross Hagen was the producer of this manic actioner.
