4.0 out of 5 stars ENTERTAINED, 25 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tokyo Gore Police (2 Disc Collectors Edition) [DVD] [2008] (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.
