By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
A lot of fans seem quite excited over the long-awaited North American release of Tokyo Zombie on DVD, and I can't say I blame them. I've seen some seriously wacky Japanese films in my day (and you don't really know what wacky is until you've seen the Japanese variety), but this over-the-top zombie comedy thoroughly revels in its zaniness. I have to say that some parts of the film didn't really click with me, but Tokyo Zombie's originality and sheer chutzpah go a long way toward minimizing whatever complaints I might have - and I'm sure many a fan will enjoy Tokyo Zombie more than I did, especially those familiar with the original manga by Yusaku Hanakuma (illustrated in the "so bad it's good" heta-uma style). Heck, just thinking back on it makes me realize I like this film even more than I thought I did as I was watching it. It does have a little bit of everything - zombies, black comedy, social commentary, class warfare, gore, sex (including a zombie BJ, which really isn't the way you want to go out), etc. - and it features cult film stars Tadanobu Asano (Ichi The Killer [DVD] [2001]) and Sho Aikawa (Dead Or Alive [DVD] [1999]) as the best buddies at the center of the weirdest zombie apocalypse I've encountered in quite some time. I might also mention that the film is directed by Sakicho Sato, the man who wrote the script for Ichi the Killer. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars Utterly mental 28 Jun 2011
By Steve G
Format:DVD
And I'm not just talking about the decision to compare it to Shaun Of The Dead on the cover. The marketing people behind this DVD should be shot. This film is absolutely nothing like Shaun Of The Dead at all.

But what is it like? Well, erm, I don't know, really. It's quite unlike anything I've ever seen. It's one part zombie film, one part romance, one part buddy comedy, one part wrestling / ju-jitsu, one part action thriller - and every single one of them is completely nuts.

As a whole, the film never really flows because it just jumps so ludicrously from one element to the other, but it's certainly never boring or predictable and it is quite often very funny indeed. Perfect for fans of indie curios and suplexing zombies.

4.0 out of 5 stars HEY LOOK! IT'S THE GUY WE RAN OVER. 11 Sep 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Mitsuo (Shô Aikawa) and Fujio (Tadanobu Asano) are two friends who work near Black Mountain Fuji. It is at this mountain people bury toxic waste, trash, and corpses of people they have killed. Our pair start out like dumb and dumber. About half way through the film, it shifts gears into Thunderdome where Mad Max is played by one of the stooges and fights zombies in the arena.

The film is meant to be a comedy, there is no horror in spite of the zombies. It does have some slow scenes. The movie can be watched in English or Japanese with subtitles. The extras have only subtitles.

Interesting cult film.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. Male rear nudity. No sex, suggested near oral sex.

2.0 out of 5 stars Barmy as a bag of Zombies... 11 Nov 2012
Format:DVD
Toyko Zombie is a live-action movie based on a Manga series of the same name. Unlike most zombie movies, this one is a comedy and despite the front cover's claim that it is the 'Japanese Shaun of the Dead', it is completely surreal and a little creepy at times.

Two friends Fujio and Mitsuo work in a Fire Extinguisher factory, often practising Jujitsu moves on each other, until their boss comes in and reprimands them. Fujio bashes him on the head with an Extinguisher, killing him, and the duo decide to bury him on 'Black Fuji' - a volcano in the centre of Tokyo which has been used by the citizens as a dumping ground for bodies, waste and unwanted electricals. However, when the dead begin to rise, the two friends have to make a decision on their futures...

Like many Japanese movies, there are slight culture differences that don't quite translate properly over here. One of those is their approach to sexuality - there are several scenes which don't quite feel right, such as a Gym Teacher sexually abusing his students (and murdering one of them!) and a perverted old man looking up the dress of a schoolgirl lying face down in some garbage. It doesn't do much to alleviate the stereotype of Japanese schoolgirls being pawed at by seedy business-men.

Most of the humour seems to come from the double-act of Fujio and Mitsuo, but there are some surprising plot twists to the story too. It doesn't follow the standard formula for a horror movie, or even a comedy movie. It is quite abstract and surreal at times, including an animated segment in the middle of the film, as well as complete changes of tone and location.

It did sound good-zombies and Ju-Jitsu but under no circumstances buy this. I have a number of kung-fu films which are so bad they're good but this is so bad it's bad. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Japanese Zombies don't quite cut it.
When I watch a zombie flick, I want to feel the sensation of hopeless doom. You know the main characters are going to escape, but you just don't see how they are going to do it. Read more
