Reviews

Outrageous, no-holds-barred, comedy horror by Japanese director Iguchi Noboru. Two Geisha sisters, Yoshie (Kiguchi Aya) and Kikuei (Hasabe Hitomi), are kidnapped into the radical right-wing secret society Tengun by megalomaniac business tycoon Kageno Taro (Shigaki Taro) and his sadistic son, Hikaru (Takumi Saito). Forced into a punishing training regime designed to turn them into lethal assassins, the girls are subjected to an alarming range of bionic surgical enhancements including machine-gun breasts, slasher socks, butt swords and napalm wigs.

Robogeisha is the touching story of some geishas that just also happen to be robots. With a sweet plot trailing their reasons for abandoning the weak human flesh for steel beauty, Robogeisha is heartwarming and inspiring. I bought this movie very much in the expectation that this would be about geishas and about robots in some kind of mix - I was not disappointed. The plot is seemingly there so that it can string together a series of increasingly bizarre fight scenes involving bum-shuriken, armpit swords, castles that punch buildings to death, and fried shrimp - but it manages to pull this off with quite endearing charm. If you're looking for deep, thought-provoking plots and a dissection of the issues we as a society face with moving towards technological dependence for social acceptance or a treatise into the human condition under increased cyborgisation then this may very well disappoint, however if you're the kind of person who buys a movie called Robogeisha looking for such a thing then you may very well need to re-evaluate your life.

After an electoral candidate receives a threat to withdraw his candidacy, he tells the messenger under no uncertain terms that he has no intentions of pulling out. He then returns to the entertainment of his Geisha girl, they sing and dance together before she splits in two and releases two fighting spirits with phallus noses. Along with the original Geisha, the two Tengu spirits use swords, anally fired shurikan stars, and 'wig napalm' to cause destruction before being attacked by Robo Geisha - a robot who fights evil. Sound a bit bonkers? Well the rest of the film is more-or-less the same.

This clearly doesn't take itself seriously and throughout the film there are numerous moments of comedy violence. To be honest, the entire film is a string of increasingly inventive and farcical fights held together by a very loose plot concerning Robo-Geisha and her sister. This is cheap entertainment in every sense, the production quality is low rate, the acting is poor, and the script is cheesy. Like a lot of other J-sploitation titles this looks like an amateur production and it's what you expect, it's part of the charm I suppose.

You don't expect a Japanese cinema classic with these titles, they simply deliver comedy horrors which are light on horror and provide humour steeped in over-the-top slapstick (a girl gets her face melted by hot breastmilk at one point, and that's not even the most weird attack sequence). There is an attempt to give some characters depth and establish some sort of tragic history, but it's soon put to one side to make room for more scantily clad ladies dishing out insane beatings.

Format: DVD
There are times when I seriously wonder what the Japanese are putting in their water. Exhibit A: "RoboGeisha!"

This is a weird, weird movie that literally doesn't have a normal scene in it --it's full of cartoonish violence, cyborg weapons, machine-gun breasts, bikinis, giant mecha,, android assassins, and a girl whose legs turn into a miniature tank. It's an epically weird movie that isn't afraid to be trashy, disgusting and just laugh-out-loud funny.

Yoshie (Aya Kiguchi) has always been treated badly by her older sister Kikuyakko. But then they are kidnapped by the Kageno Steel Company, and inducted into the Hidden Geishas -- an elite force of cyborg geisha assassins who are sent out to kill... well, anybody the Company doesn't like. Soon the sisters are competing for who can become the most deadly.

But on one of her missions, Yoshie encounters a bunch of people whose relatives have been kidnapped by the Company -- and later discovers that the Company is planning to do.... something that could destroy all of Japan. Now with the Kagenos wanting her dead, can RoboGeisha save her country?

As you can guess, this movie doesn't make a lot of logical sense. It's B-movie schlock on steroids -- everything is over-the-top, often silly, and sometimes just insane (did that building BLEED? Did that giant mecha just throw up?). Heck, it even has shouted attack names that will make you guffaw ("Wig Napalm!").

It's brain popcorn pure and simple, with lots of senseless violence (where else will you see an elderly Japanese man shooting girls with his knee?!) and sight gags (Yoshie repeatedly whacks a guy's head into his torso). One thing I do NOT understand is... how does that first scene where Yoshie fights the GoblinSquad to save somebody come into the story?

11 of 12 people found the following review helpful By The Critic Ali Insane on 10 Jun 2010
Format: DVD
SYNOPSIS:

A megalomaniac Japanese man and his son recuit carefully selected women with certain qualities in order to surgically modify their bodies with mechanized parts to insist them with their evil scheme to take over the world. They enlist two sisters drenched in personal rivalry but the "good one" refuses to slaughter an innocent group of ex-employees. Instead, she joins their ranks and spearheads their mission to bring down the dastardly establishment and regain her sister's affection before the whole of Japan is annihilated by a giant stink bomb.

THE REVIEW:

Director Noburo Iguchi, the man behind Machine Girl, returns with an even more outrageous feature loaded with inventive ideas and taboo humour which slips into the realms of slapstick on serveral occasions. Admittedly, Robogeisha doesn't have the best of starts; the substandard acting and poor script had me feeling robbed and wanting a refund; but, having become a big fan Yoshihiro Nishimura's special effect/gore factor, i wisely invested in some perseverance. Around scene 9, the pacing and action gets turned up a notch and, from hereonin, i was hooked. I found myself laughing at all the sheer stupidity of all the weaponry on display, ranging from butt blades, rectal missiles of mass destruction, wig napalm and gatlin gun breast, to shamisen powered tanks, giant castle robots and buildings that bleed; all rounded off neatly with a strong wiff of "fan service" - know whatta mean?... No?... Well, heres a clue: Asami "tent pitching" Miyajimi (aka Asami Suigiura) is a porn star/J-sploitation actress and despite her face being covered in a Tengu mask, there's plenty of delicious flesh on display along with the obligatory gusset shots... oo-er farmer Giles.
