Product Description

Sexy katakana-wielding cop Ruka ( Eihi Shiina ) is part of a special paramilitary squad that maintains order in the tough streets of futuristic Tokyo by squashing violence with ultraviolence and merciless executions. Her latest mission is to hunt down a mad scientist known as the Key Man who has developed a virus that mutates humans into hideous killing machines. These monstrous man-creatures might be able to sprout wacky weapons from their wounds, but they're no match for Ruka who's been on a vengeful bent ever since her father was murdered. The case turns bloody personal when Ruka discovers that Key Man may be linked to her father's death.

Living up to its billing with eye-popping gore, comically over-the-top perversions, and thoroughly entertaining madness, Tokyo Gore Police is a must-watch for fans of gore and extreme cinema.

4.0 out of 5 stars ENTERTAINED 25 Feb 2011
By 747Rick
Format:DVD
I'd like to start by saying I am not an expert on Japanese film by any means but I have watched my fair share. Like any other country Japan is allowed to make films in any number of styles from Comedy to Horror, so it does wind me up slightly when some reviewers on here tell us they are fans or experts of Manga, Anime or Asian films and then say that this was a let down and not in the same league as any other number of Asian Films. Just because we are starting to see more of these films appearing on DVD in this country does not mean that every one of them has to be a 'masterpiece'. I would also state that anyone buying or renting a movie with this Title and expecting 'The Seven Samurai' is missing the point!!

The film is great fun, full of over the top gore (yes it does look unreal but again that's the point) and, contrary to what some others have said, does have a semblance of a story. At least there is a reason behind the lead characters actions, but the film has not been made so you and I can explore deep meaning behind the dialogue.

It actually reminded me of Robocop at times, completely different in style but in the fact that the Police were being Privatised, that a lot of them were corrupt, how the lead character was moulded to fit what was needed by the corrupt and mostly the inclusion of several very funny futuristic television adverts. It's not a copy by any means but there is a debt of gratitude to that movie.

Another reviewer quoted 'It does exactly what it says on the tin' and you really cannot put it any better than that. Good extras on the 2 disc version as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you stop trying to take this one seriously... 13 Aug 2011
By Florian
Format:DVD
it might just be the "greatest japanese fun splatter" for a nice movie evening with friends. It has all you need packed in two hours (apart from a good story but come on... who would really expect this from a movie called "Tokyo Gore Police" xD ). It has some nudity... it has funny scenes... it has weird scenes... it has blood... and it has even more blood... furthermore it has a Rocketlauncher that fires human arms/Fists and a "Blood-Jetpack". Surely this kind of film and entertainment might not be suitable for everybody and I understand that many might not like this one. But if you're intrested in Japanese splatter films this one is it... And for this price... just give it a try. I wasn't sure if I would like it when i first watched the dvd but after all i loved it. Some scenes remind me of The Texas chainsaw massacre... some are more like Braindead... some are like in a psychotic weird Manga.

After all ...Great movie. 5 out of 5 Bloodfountains xD

4.0 out of 5 stars Utterly astonishing! 5 Mar 2009
By Ian Williams TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This dvd you will either rush to buy or hope to avoid for the rest of your life. For the first time since my early teens, and after watching the opening sequence, I began to wonder if I could actually stay the course of watching a horror film. Thankfully, the gore set-pieces were paced throughout the running time.

This isn't a good film and at times, because of unexplained cutting from one scene to another, difficult to follow. Also I didn't recognise one cop when, out of samurai-stylised uniform, he transformed into a total idiot who wrongly thought himself the coolest dude in the city. Characterisation is minimal -there are only really two, our heroine and main villain, everyone else is a cipher at best.

The satirical elements -tv ads for some form of violence such as having chirpy teen girls promoting small knives to use for self-harm- are wincingly effective.

However, the selling point are the surreal images and the over the top gore (often one and the same) and good grief it is over the top, piling image after image you never imagined in your entire life and the one (if you're male) you might fearfully have imagined then you certainly hoped that you never would see.

I feel deeply ashamed of myself to admit that I did enjoy this film and, worse, that I'll watch it again some time in the future. In mitigation, all I can say is that it is a black black unreal comedy which displays a remarkable, albeit appalling, invention, rather than being a witless sadistic slasher. It may not leave you stirred but it will quite likely leave you shaken.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a Region B-playable Blu-ray 8 Dec 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
As I have TGP on the 2-disc Collector's Edition, I was interested in trying the Blu-ray. After a bit of research I found that the US Blu-ray is listed as Region A, but it is also Region B compatible, so I took a chance and ordered it - from All Your Music in the States - and after a quick delivery time of nine days (for trans-Atlantic post: ordered 29th Nov, delivered 8th Dec), I've just tried the disc out on my UK-bought Playstation 3 - no problems!

One interesting thing, which was a bit of a shock, was the English dub - this is not on the DVD, and differs from the translation subtitles from the DVD, which may annoy some. When I get time this will be an interesting watch...!

Picture quality. Well, after checking a few scenes, it's an improvement - in places; almost too much as the prosthetics are a bit obvious at times. Maybe because I sit closer to my monitor (PC/PS3 plugged in) than I do to my TV, I noticed some instances of not-entirely-HD-quality, but that may also just be the film and it's low budget origins. For example, some shots of the Crocodile Girl are soft focus and others are pin-sharp, but her attack/posing are pretty much sharper than the DVD.

The extras disc is a DVD - probably Region 1 (from hints thrown up in my research), I haven't tried it - but it only contains the short insert films/adverts from the film, which for some reason are not on the Blu-ray. Odd, as a Blu-ray has quite a bit of space available...!

So, to sum up. If you want TGP on Blu-ray and have been put off by Region A notices, fear not. Mine is UK-compatible, so yours almost certainly will be. Go on, get yourself your very own Crocodile Girl for Christmas!
