Machine Girl (Kataude mashin gâru)

by on May.10, 2010, under Daily Review

I’ve been looking forward to this one for a while and it certainly has the impact which you’d expect. School girl Ami (Minase Yashiro) has her life turned upside down after the death of her brother by the hands of the Yakuza. Her attempts of revenge first result in her arm being deep fried into crispy tempura, later hacked off with a Katana in a brutal scene of torture. She returns the favour with an ample helping of carnage, complete with a machine gun barrel to replace her destroyed limb. (a moment of A-Team inspiration)

This is a totally over the top gore fest with vivid stereotype cartoon characters performing deeds of extreme violence. A huge blood bath with limbs hacked off all over the place. This is super gore at it’s finest. It’s fast moving, action packed and full of fun between scenes of extremity which works well.

The film offers nothing more and nothing less.  The effects are outstanding, and it’s well filmed and very easy to watch, even though some scenes are really disgusting and really in bad taste but other scenes will have you cheering at the screen.
