    Well recommended for Japanese gore hounds. Surprising and hilarious. 11 years 6 months ago

    With Tokyo Gore Police, I was expecting a crazy blood-soaked B-movie with bad CG in the style of Robo-Geisha. What I got was a crazy blood-soaked (that seems like understating it) B-movie with demented PRACTICAL effects, and that makes a big difference. In a cyberpunk future apparently inspired by the Jet Set Radio Future video game (if designed by Cronenberg), body modification is big and terrorists who can turn wounds into weapons run amok. Eihi Shiina (Audition) is our heroine, giving off disinterested Lucy Liu vibes, which I don't mean as a compliment, in a disjointed story of pornographic violence and violent pornography (not as lascivious as I make it sound, rather this is a movie with a dick cannon in it). Here's the thing. Because it's a spoof of sex and violence in movies, you can never take it very seriously, but the seriousness of the protagonist kind of wants us to. The action choreography relies too heavily on slow-mo and other tricks to cover up its weaknesses as well. But I can't fault its imagination and sense of limitlessness, so I'm giving it a recommendation anyway. Might definitely have worked better as a series of 10-minute shorts on MTV or something. 10 months 4 weeks ago

    The title alone pretty much says it. Set in Japan, involving the police and last but not least gore by the bocketload! Never since i saw Braindead for the first time have i ever thought I would see a film that was any gorier, but trust me i just have!! I think the filmmakers were pretty self-aware and just wanted to make the goriest film ever, in which i would say they succeeded. Only recommended for gore hounds though. Any normal moviegoer sould probaly stay away, since it's, well... very gory. 6 years 11 months ago
