Tôkyô zankoku keisatsu

Synopsis: Tokyo Is Burning.

Blood and guts are the ultimate weapon! In the near future, the Tokyo Police Corporation is locked in a bloody war with the “engineers.” These genetically modified super-criminals can bio-fuse their open wounds with weapons, turning self-mutilation into a combat form. Ruka, the daughter of the police chief’s murdered right-hand man, is now the top engineer hunter. With cold-blooded efficiency she cuts through the psychotic engineers and tracks down their home base, a truly bizarre fetish club. Nothing keeps her from her sworn duty, even when she finds out the truth behind her father’s death.

Tôkyô zankoku keisatsu 6.0

Well, the trailer made it seem so outrageously over-the-top that it might be fun. Meh. It was alright.

It’s a weird film, in that it’s like an extreme anime done in live action. Except that those animes are derived from live action samurai films of the early ’70s. Which, in turn, may very well be derived from manga (not sure about the latter, actually). So it shows its influences. But it really takes to the next level.

Anyway, it’s REALLY not for all tastes. It’s a bit much. But it could be entertaining for some.
