Summary: 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 in and of itself. (imdb)
This movie promises over-the-top violence and gore, and it delivers. If you watch the trailer, you'll know immediately whether or not you want to see it. There aren't any real gray areas, and it's not going to spring any big surprises on you that'd make the trailer misleading.
First of all I admit I'm not a huge fan of japanese cinema, but this was even worse than expected. Plenty of (very cheap) gore and somewhat interesting plot, but the execution is horrible, the script seems to consist of random scenes that make no sense whatsoever. Dead Alive did pretty much the same thing, but better in every conceivable way.
This movie is just over the top..its fun and bloody and they give you everything you could want. The acting is a little above average and the film does drag. But, it has some scenes in this movie that are so beyond ludacris you have to laugh and have a blast
Confusing mess of a film, influences all over the place and thankfully a micro budget so the huge amounts of gore don't look very realistic. Gore fans, have fun. Bizarre Japanese movie fans, have fun. I didn't really.
WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH JAPANESE PEOPLE WHAT... OK, I suppose on some level they're trying to make some sort of updated Videodrome. But... where Machine Girl was just as gory in terms of body parts and high-pressure blood, TGK has a calm, clinical let's-gross-the-viewer-out attitude that just rubs me the wrong way. Still, you have to admire the inventiveness.
I've been entranced by the likes of The Machine Girl, Chanbara Beauty and Attack Girls' Swim Team Versus the UnDead and this film is of the same breed. If you want Japanese girls killing using some unique ways to slice, dice, and dismember, look no further than the aforementioned.
Extreme violence, every existing stereotype of Japan at its craziest, and a plot that makes no sense whatsoever, crammed together in a sick, entertaining gorefest very thinly disguised as dystopian social commentary. As hilarious as it's disturbing.
Tokyo Gore Police is a truly sick brutal movie like most Japanese cyberpunk films. The story is also not very original and is mostly extremely thin. Nevertheless, it’s still an entertaining satire which can’t be taken seriously. Like all “Japanese Cyberpunk movies”, if you have got problems with violence, you won’t like this movie. Most of the horror scenes aren’t as scary as the horror scenes of the movies Yu On and The Ring, although these movies are less brutal.
This weird flick doesn't know what it wants to be. There's a decent premise for a dark scifi action flick which they play very seriously, but then there's all this ludicrous over the top gore. It's like Machine Girl mixed with Blade Runner. This flick wasn't campy enough for the gore to be fun, but the over-the-topness seemed out of place in a movie with such a serious tone.
Kind of like that Hardboiled comic Frank "Robocop 2" Miller did back in the dizay, only not as overrated. High on gore, a whole lot of gore, a desensitizing amount of gore, it's even in the freaking title. Special effects and plot are about on par with an episode of the Power Rangers (not sure if I intend that as an insult), and the bad acting transcends language. Worth it for people that want a spiffier live action Riki-Oh (drug addicts, nerds, drug addicted nerds)
