Review

Iguchi knows what he likes, and what he likes is ass, blood, absurdity, and making the audience laugh --Rob Hunter Film School Rejects

don't worry, just because she's proper doesn't mean her face doesn't turn into a buzz saw. --iO9.com

The strange moments per minute quotient is truly remarkable --Twitch Film

Product Description

The twisted geniuses behind The Machine Girl and Tokyo Gore Police present a tale of sibling rivalry, chainsaw faces, machine gun boobs, and butt blades.

Kikuke is a geisha known for her glamour and grace. Yoshie is her abused sister, banished to the shadows. When a mysterious corporation transforms their soft bodies into murderous machines, the rival vixens rush toward an ultraviolent final confrontation.

3.0 out of 5 stars It was okay...but I liked The Machine Girl better. June 26, 2011
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
To prepare for my review of RoboGeisha, I wanted to familiarize myself with the director/writer Noboru Iguchi, so I watched The Machine Girl first. With that movie under my belt, I felt a little more prepared to watch RoboGeisha.

But only a little.

RoboGeisha advertises itself as "An orgy of WTF" and this is probably the most accurate statement I've ever read. Just when you think this movie can't get any stranger, it takes the weirdness factor and turns it up to 38 (11? We're WAYYY past turning up to 11 here). If you're familiar with movies by Troma Entertainment, you'll feel right at home with this one.

One of the common themes in both The Machine Girl and RoboGeisha are their ultraviolent opening sequences. Before we hit the 10 minute mark we see a mechanized geisha girl, two goblins attacking their intended targets with swords, goblin brassieres, and a weapon I can only describe as "Butt Shurikens". I'm sure there's a better term, but I couldn't find one in my thesaurus.

PLOT:

This is the story of two sisters, Yoshie and Kikuyakko, who are recruited by the Kageno Steel Manufacturing company. Yoshie is the shy younger sister who constantly gets abused by Kikuyakko.

Once recruited, the sisters start to rise up the ranks of the organization and they earn the right to have their bodies rebuilt. Kikuyakko outfits her body with saw blades and a gatling gun in her chest, whereas Yoshie gets armpit blades, wig napalm and...okay, this sounds a little more insane than I originally intended.

Format:Blu-ray
Although this film featured decent cinematography and quite a few moments of brilliance, the momentum was repeatedly dragged down by the annoying rivalry between sisters. Although one does not watch this genre of visual entertainment expecting complex characters and plotlines, the allegiances and intentions of the primary characters kept stalling the proceedings for me. Having previously enjoyed several totally bizarre and fast-moving Japanese films like Samurai Princess, Vampire Girl Versus Frankenstein Girl, and Tokyo Gore Police, this entry was slightly disappointing. If the filmmakers had edited the 101-minute length of this movie by eliminating or shortening the scenes that added nothing to the storyline, I feel it would have resulted in a more cohesive and engaging feast for the eyes. Nonetheless, the occasionally hilarious dialog and the imaginative and clever weaponry implanted in various bodily orifices and protrusions overshadowed the storyline hiccups. If you do not micro-analyze the intentionally-imperfect visual effects, character inconsistencies, and frequent departures from reality, you will most likely find this movie to be a fun viewing experience!

3.0 out of 5 stars Eagerly Anticipated - Highly Disappointed... July 30, 2010
Format:Blu-ray
As a big fan of the jaw-dropping, mind-melding, get-your-kicks-on-Route-66, WTF insanity of 'Machine Girl', 'Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl', 'Tokyo Gore Police', 'Meatball Machine' and, to a lesser extent, 'Hard Revenge Milly' and 'Onechanbara', I salivated in delight when I saw the trailer for this flick and bagged one cheap on another site prior to US release date. Hard not to when you read about demented weaponry like wig napalm, machine breast artillery, killer butt-blades, breast milk from hell and killer-cleaver socks, along with the usual guns and swordplay that no longer seem enough for we jaded fanatics of far-fetched films.

A megalomaniacal Japanese businessman and his son are recruiting certain girls to train to become Geisha assassins, surgically augmenting them with weapons, armor and similar appendages (sound familiar?) in a bid to take over the world. Two sisters are initiated, but when one of them refuses to kill an innocent group of elderly ex-employees, the sisters must square-off in Kamikaze combat to save us all. Or something like that.

Unfortunately, in spite of all I've mentioned, this film disappoints on various levels - the plot is weak (which is easily forgiven if the flick transcends this flaw, as in most of the above-referenced films, all of which I enjoyed to some extent, so I'm no elitist a-hole ), the special effects are too often childish and hokey (though several are well-executed), the fight scenes are feeble (no one participating really got proper training to pull the scenes off ), resulting in violence akin to the likes of a Tom and Jerry cartoon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ass-Swords and Wig Napalm - what more could you ask for? September 11, 2013
Format:DVD
RoboGeisha is a difficult movie to review simply because it's so outlandish as to defy description. But I'm here so I'll give it a try.

Imagine if Robocop was made by Troma, and Troma was a Japanese company, and that company used the scriptwriter's edition of Mad Libs to develop the working script for their movie - after they'd been drinking. A lot. That's kind of RoboGeisha in a nutshell (and the nutshell has been drinking a lot, too).

Don't get me wrong. RoboGeisha is a wild ride from start to finish. It has brief moments of almost-normalcy sprinkled hither and yon, but the rest of the time we're gleefully tobogganing down the rabbit hole - while on fire singing Christmas carols. This is definitely NOT a film to take seriously. Any attempt to do so could be harmful to your health.

The action is over-the-top/campy and the special effects are quite good considering the subject matter. Many of RoboGeisha's gimmicks are there more for the 'has-this-ever-been-done-before?' novelty than anything resembling logic. To their credit, they pull it off. I lost count of the 'WTF?' moments this movie has. Again, don't overthink this.

There is moderate gore (very mild compared to Tokyo Gore Police or Machine Girl) and mild sexuality (no nudity but some panty upskirts) in this film. I don't think there is any swearing.

Overall I give this movie 3.75 stars, rounded up to 4. The only thing that could have made this movie better is Chuck Norris.

Another weird. and violent sci-fi actioner from Japan. Not as good as other films in this sub-genre. Worth a look for some hardcore fans, but worth a pass by most.
