Product Description

Samurai Princess takes place sometime, somewhere in an alternate universe version of feudal Japan, where people live together with highly developed mechanical dolls. However, excessively developed mechanical dolls start causing harm to the human society, leading to ghastly bloodsheds happening all over the place. Under the circumstances, Kyoraku, a mad scientist, creates a female ninja mechanical doll. Equipped with 11 types of built-in weapons, the ninja doll is infused with the souls of eleven of her fallen sisters and she uses their combined power to take down anyone who stands in the way. The ninja doll will not die even if she is slashed by a sword or shot by a gun she is virtually indestructible on her quest to save humanity.

From the creator of "Tokyo Gore Police" and "Machine Girl", Yoshihiro Nishimura joins director/writer Kengo Kaji (Ultra-Seven X) as action director in this latest GORE-RIFFIC Japanese spectacle "SAMURAI PRINCESS" (aka. Devil Princess). One thing I have to say is that this film is NOT for everyone and is aimed at a very specific audience namely those who love Japanese "grind house" cinema and Gore-hounds. It stars J-AV stars Aino Kishi as the heroine and Mihiro Taniguchi (Cruel Restaurant) as the villainess--so do I have your attention yet?!

In an unknown place and an unknown time, when the creation of mechas (human-like androids) are outlawed by both the laws of Buddha and the Shogun; a pair of mad killers (played by Kentarou Shimazu and Mihiro) enhanced by mysticism and machinery are committing rape and murder throughout the land for the sake of making macabre art. Among their victims are Godohimo (Aino Kishi), who after her other 11 friends are raped and killed, is left for dead. Godohimo is found by a mad scientist called Kyoraku (Mituru Karahashi) who excels in making human-like machines and a kind-hearted Buddhist nun. Godohimo is resurrected in a new body made up of the body parts of her dead friends and their souls to hunt down and exact revenge on those responsible. Joined by a mysterious stranger named Gekko (Dai Mizuno), Godohimo is now known as "Samurai Princess"; a half-human, half-machine tech-warrior bent on revenge...

The film's plot is a tad uninspired and quite frankly pretty straightforward. "Samurai Princess" is a film about revenge and redemption. It also carries the elements of atonement and regret; coupled with a hint of mysticism.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only for hardcore fans and those looking for MST3K fun December 23, 2009
Format:DVD
Allow me to be the voice of reason on this movie. It sucks. Ignoring the passion for certain genres and objectively looking at a really bad movie is difficult. Most watch this sort of movie because there is genuine appreciation for the source and the style. Unfortunately, this movie lacks a lot of the latter, despite the former.

The quick synopsis gives us a mad scientist, with the help of a nun and two horrible actresses who speak in unison, finds a beautiful young girl who witnessed the rape, murder, and dismemberment of her eleven friends. Discovered at the bottom of a grisly pile of bloody body parts, her friends' body parts, she's in bad shape. With a desire for revenge, the girl asks the scientist to transform her into what amounts to a modern Japanese Frankenstein, a mixture of her girlfriends' body parts and bizarre attachments, making her mostly human, but wholly Mecha: an outlawed combination of human and machine.

Both gore and action are ubiquitous, but done so poorly they are hardly entertaining. This film obviously had a low budget, because the gore looks like tomato juice, and the excuses for body parts are not worth mentioning. Additionally hamstringing this movie is the acting, or lack thereof. A cast of Keanu Reeves, Hayden Christiansen, and the kids from Twilight would put together a more moving performance. I'm talking wooden and outrageous overacting, with nearly nothing in between.

It is an absolute must to not only be a hardcore fan of this stuff, but also a forgiving movie critic to fight through the entire movie. There is just too much bad going on for any of the good to stand out. If you must watch this, heed this recommendation: drink a little beforehand and use it as an opportunity to crack jokes, MST3K style. Otherwise, you'll want to turn it off before the groan-worthy end with the mangled combination of Barbie Doll and He Man figurine that will remind you of the doll nightmare from Toy Story (trust me).

3.0 out of 5 stars Middle of the road. November 24, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Kengo Kaji directs without much style in this wanna be Machine Girl / Tokyo Gore Police offering. I love these type of gore filled, silly and wacky Japanese horror flicks and though this film has some of the same crew as the films I mentioned above, it really is a weak offering to this genre. Aino Kishi who plays the samurai princess lacks the charisma to hold the film up and play the lead and the characters in this movie lack depth and background, so you really don't feel or care for any of the characters or can't even relate as you can to Tokyo Gore Police and Machine Girl. It just lacks the fun and energy that this genre offers. I am not sure if it is because of the obvious low budget, amateur acting/directing, god-awful costumes or what, but I can give the movie a lot of credit for some good old fashioned prop special effects and gore - well done and fun to watch. I think if this came out prior to the release of Machine Girl and GOre Police I would have liked it much more, but it seems to me like a step back and can only say it is okay at best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Horror meets Samurai March 22, 2011
Format:DVD
This is one of the best new-breed samurai films out there on the market today. It combines spectacular choreograph, using swords and guns, with a very bizarre storyline. For the new-breed of samurai films, this is a must see. Though it is not for everyone.

This film combines action with a lot of Japanese style horror. This is a warning because if your are a fan of the old school of samurai film, or you are looking to see the sexy girl on the DVD cover, you will probably shut this movie off about ten or fifteen minutes in. The girl doesn't wear the costume on the cover and there is a lot of blood.

If you are a fan of horror films, particularly Japanese horror films, then this one is for you.

In many way this film is reminiscent of the old Japanese low-budget horror films that came out during the 1970's. I am sure the directors Yoshihiro Nishimura, who is probably most well know for his film Tokyo Gore Police, and Kengo Kaji did this on purpose, because there is obviously a large budget behind this film. They just make the movie look like a low-budget horror movie. The combination of these two elements, budget and unique gore storyline really work for this movie.

If you like blood, if you horror, if you like samurai action, then watch this DVD.
