Tokyo Gore Police
Tokyo Is Burning
Set in a future-world vision of Tokyo where the police have been privatized and bitter self-mutilation is so casual that advertising is often specially geared to the "cutter" demographic, this is the story of samurai-sword-wielding Ruka and her mission to avenge her father's assassination. Ruka is a cop from a squad who's mission is to destroy homicidal mutant humans known as "engineers" possessing the ability to transform any injury to a weapon.
Just...what in the fuck...
Whatever the fuck...
It was fun.
That's all I can say to describe such a bizarre, yet oddly original film.
It's certainly a feast on the eyes. You may be confused about what you see, but it's an interesting sight.
A fun and just plain batshit insane sight.
"Engineers. We have to kill them by any means. They are…humanity’s new enemy."
-Tokyo Police Chief (Yukihide Benny)
This is very much one of those movies where you find yourself asking – ‘what in the good name of all that is holy did I just watch?’. In all likelihood you will also either angrily object to such a preposterous mess of a film, or just shrug your shoulders and get swept up in the lunacy that is Japanese cinema. And this is a sterling advertisement for it if ever there was one, a nightmarish fever dream of dystopia Tokyo, mutants and girls with samurai swords!
The film opens with a girl’s dad’s head blowing up, a crazy tramp with bad…
This movie fucking Rocks! Super gory and ridiculous. You won't regret watching this, I guarantee it
Having caught Machine Girl last year I thought it best I gave Tokyo Gore Police a whirl.
The gore is plentiful. The plot is batshit crazy. Everybody looks as though they had a whole heap of fun making it. Throughout, I was getting strong whiffs of Robocop-type satire but it in no way felt forced or hindered the skewed world the film inhabits.
Tokyo Gore Police is a great niche movie, made for approximately £2.23p and exhibits some of the best bonkers'ness I've witnessed in a very long time.
Three words for you: Fountains of blood.
I can't explain why someone made this film, or why I watched it, but the great question is why (or how) in god's name I liked that movie?
Is there any movie with more gore/blood than TGP?
Šis ir kaut kas TIK slims, ārprātīgs, kičīgs, murgains, stulbs, idiotisks, neķītrs, sadistisks, narkomānu murgi un... un... es pat nevaru atrast vārdus ar ko noraksturot šo plānprātību, ka jāskatās ar plaši atvērtām acīm :D
Tik daudz WTF momentu un "ko es nupat redzēju" brīžu, ka žoklis atkarās.
Pēc šī jebkura Tarantīno vaio Rodrigesa vai b-klases treša filma liekas kā zīdaiņa šļupsti :D
Galvenajā lomā Eihi Shiina, nu tā kura Takeši Mīke "Audition" bija.
Nē, man nav ko tiekt!
Japāņi tomēr ir galvā diezgan slimi.
An incoherent gore scenes. It looks cool I guess but the story is too "WTF Japan".
I am thankful for living in a world where movies like this exist.
Don't ask me to define "movies like this" though. This was just... What the fuck.
Japanese splatter gore is the best genre I don't care what you say
I've been anticipating my first watch of this film for a while now, so I had a pretty decent idea of at least the gist of what I was getting myself into. I don't know what it "is," or "why," but whatever it may be and regardless it does so perfectly and with great power. Simply magical. (- half star for whatever happened with that "chair" thing.) Likely the best movie I've ever seen that I will never be able to share the experience of watching with anyone I know or care about.
Some months ago I seen another japanese movie that although retarded, it was enjoyable...Machine Girl, so the japs tried to capitalize on it with another one...
I got disappointed...this one is pobrably the best stuff for guys who martubate watching hentai and big mosters with 7 dicks..
Soma maniac killers are on the loose and after a while when you chop something out of them, other stuff come out...its just this during 90 min...in what seems like Power Rangers on drugs!
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Over the top, extreme anime like violence. I did love the movies choice to convey cyborg mutants (called engineers) and gore with old-school makeup effects in lieu of CGI.
Amongst the numerous sprays, it's a film that has such a serious undercurrent. I don't know about a serious tale in amongst scenes of Poundland skulls being plonked on sticks, especially with later efforts such as Vampire Girl vs Frankenstein Girl being so light; However it's still a ridiculous ride with scenes that you can't describe to people without just saying 'Watch it yourself'
