Review

Bloody good! --New York Post

Strap yourselves in, boys
and girls, because things are
about to get very, very bloody
and very, very strange. --Twitch

Best Asian Film --Fantasia Film Festival

Product Description

In the near future, the Tokyo Police Corporation
is locked in a bloody war with the engineers,
genetically modified super-criminals who can
bio-fuse their open wounds with weapons,
turning self-mutilation into a combat form. Ruka
is now the top 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 to destroy the homicidal mutants
and avenge her father s death.

3.0 out of 5 stars Another flawed Media-Blasters blu-ray April 20, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Tokyo Gore Police is a fun movie - it's one of the recent "over the top, super-gore" films coming out of Japan (Machine Girl, Mutant Girls Squad, Robo-Geisha, Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl, Meatball Machine, Samurai Princess, Hard Revenge Milly), and I think the names should be enough to tell you that these aren't going to be high-class art films. These movies are generally made on a lower budget, with a focus on trying to "top" the other movies in terms of craziness, and Tokyo Gore Police does a good job at that. If you've seen Kill Bill, these movies are over the top in a similar way as the Crazy 88's fight sequence in the first movie - blood splattering and parts flying everywhere. If you liked that, these movies are for you. If you didn't, just move on now.

For more information on this movie, I would suggest reading some of the reviews from the DVD page: Tokyo Gore Police. It's a love-it-or-hate-it type of movie.

I loved it - even bought 3 different versions of it, and that's part of where my problem is.

Media Blasters/Tokyo Shock have been releasing multiple versions of these films, each with numerous problems (usually release a movie-only version, following it up a couple months later with a Movie+Extras version (in the case of Tokyo Gore Police, a 2nd disc of short films), and then either a 3rd release (Movie+Extras+More Extras.. or a Blu-Ray)). Machine Girl is getting a total of 4 releases, this Blu-Ray is Tokyo Gore Police's 3rd release and it seems like a step back.

The most obvious problem is that this is listed as a 2-disc set on the back of the case, featuring the extras: TOKYO GORE POLICE SHORT FILM COLLECTION, ORIGINAL TRAILER, OPENING DIGEST.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tokyo Gore Police 1.5 review September 16, 2010
Format:DVD
I'll start off by saying I loved Tokyo Gore Police. I wrote a review for that in the "Tokyo Gore Police" DVD section.

However, Tokyo Shock has re-released it with a bonus disc of follow-up short films, calling it "Tokyo Gore Police 1.5". I actually looked all over for more information on it and came up empty. Hopefully if you're in the same situation, this review will help.

I will say that I'm very annoyed with Tokyo Shock's marketing of these.. they release a title, sell them and then a couple months later re-release it with bonus content, basically "screwing" anyone who purchased it previously. They released 3 versions of "Machine Girl" and 2 of "Tokyo Gore Police" so far (generally doubling in price over the previous release). Since there are no special features on Tokyo Gore Police, I can imagine them releasing that a third time as well.

But for more info on TGP, check out the reviews on that DVDs page: Tokyo Gore Police

TGP 1.5 is the same disc as before, but now includes a second disc of "follow-up short films, extending the TGP Cinematic experience".. I don't know about that, but that's how they market it. It's basically a disc of ~45 minutes worth of short films (and a recap of the TGP movie). These are all very low-budget short films (a few minutes each) or commercials, and not of the same standard the movie was made with. I didn't enjoy these nearly as much as I had wanted to, and will likely not re-watch them. I can honestly not recommend anyone who had already purchased the previous release to "upgrade" to this (as I did), and for those purchasing for the first time, it's up to you whether the 1.5 bonus disc is worth about double the cost of the film itself.

Format:DVD
From the producers of "Machine Girl" and "Death Trance" comes a film that is so outrageously bizarre, full of "pink" violence, blood-splattering horror effects, TRULY bizarre characters, that will definitely make some people stop the film, others will cheer, but no one can deny that the film is brilliant in a very different and original way. If you think you are ready for "TOKYO GORE POLICE" then you have another think coming. Once you see the film's opening act of dismembered full frontal nudity with lots of blood and gore, you may get the idea that you are in for something very unusual. So, Do I have your attention yet??

In a far distant future, Tokyo's police force have been privatized and they are locked in constant combat with a group of genetically enhanced killers called "Engineers". These genetically modified super-murderers can bio-infuse their open wounds with weapons, turning self-mutilation into combat form. Ruka (Eihi Shiina, Audition) is the daughter of the police chief's murdered right-hand man, is now the police corporation's top engineer hunter. With cold-blooded efficiency, she cuts through the psychotic engineers and leaves them very dead. Nothing can keep her from her duty, that is until she encounters a mysterious engineer called the "key man" and she learns the truth behind her father's death.

"Tokyo Gore Police" is the directorial debut of Yoshihiro Nishimura, the same man who is responsible for the effects and make up for "Machine Girl", the man had brainstormed with Sion Sono for "Strange Circus", and if those two films are any indication, you can imagine just how outrageous and chaotic this film can get. I am at a lost for words, this film had left me almost speechless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Twisted into a Straight Great
Sick. Some pixelating censorship in one part, but, this is a must own. Look for the blu ray cheap that has no editing. Do research if serious.

A Gory and disturbing film about fascist cops and killer mutants in future Japan. A movie that is hard to describe and not for the weak.
