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.

By The Matrix Fan VINE VOICE on 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.

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!

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.

This is a second runner up from Cutie Honey for being ridiculously entertaining. It is Manga/Anime Live-Action at it's prime. As I said in the Cutie Honey review, I'm not really much of an Anime/Manga buff, but I was thoroughly entertained the whole time. This is a psycho-sicko-delica-imagination-trip!

I'll start this off by saying that this movie is absolutely ridiculous! And I also have to say that I mean this in the best possible way! I have brought this movie to watch with several different groups of friends and it's a hit each time. It's a perfect blend of action, humor, gore, and craziness! One sister hates the other and keeps getting cybernetic upgrades to outdo the other. The other sister loves her and just wants her approval. One insane choice after another leads to assassinations and nonstop action culminating in one of the weirdest finales I think I've ever seen in a movie. You have to give this a try. You won't regret it!
