Product Description

Blu-Ray pressing. A beautiful woman is actually an instrument of violent revenge in this blood-spattered action story from Japan. In ancient Japan, people live side-by-side with mechanical human replicas, created by rogue inventors, which have suddenly and dangerously gone mad, leaving a remarkable trail of carnage in their wake. Desperate to avenge the killings and restore order, one of the inventors creates an especially powerful robot from the remains of a beautiful princess, who was murdered along with her friends by one of the androids. The mechanically enhanced princess (Aino Kishi) is equipped with eleven deadly weapons, and she's sent out to do battle alongside a human warrior who has a musical instrument so loud it can be used to destroy his enemies.

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.

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.

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).

Wow... I love martial arts movies especially Asian ones where the martial are superb ... but SERIOUSLY! This movie was so bad ... If I could get a refund I would ask for it. Bad plot, even worse acting, and the best .... the absolute WORST special effects.

Samurai-Purincesu: Gedo-hime (Kengo Kaji, 2009)

The runaway success of 2006's The Machine Girl kicked off a thriving cottage industry in ultra-violent cute-cyborg-girl revenge movies in Japan. To be blunt, the majority of them suck. Samurai-Purincesu: Gedo-hime, released in the west with the much simpler title Samurai Princess, is no exception. You probably knew this if you're a pornhound, since the title role is played by Aino Kishi, who's much better known for her efforts in such timeless classics as Kinky Asian Schoolgirl and Lovely Asian Sensuous Teen Nurse. This flick doesn't ask her to do much acting, though she was probably happy with the change in pace of getting to leave her clothing on for more than two minutes at a stretch.

There is a plot, or at least, a plot is set up: Our samurai princess and her eleven friends are kidnapped, repeatedly raped, brutalized, etc. until all of them save our main character are dead, at which point a mad scientist transfers the eleven souls of her friends into our main character and turns her into a half-human, half-robot killing machine. Cue large amounts of violence and enough fake blood to drown a horse. And once the swords start slashing and the blood starts flying, who needs a plot?

Well, me, for one. One of the things that made The Machine Girl so much fun is that it's got a plot. And real characters. Yes, there's a great deal of over-the-top comedic violence, but it's all in service to the story, whereas here it's gore for gore's sake. There's nothing to latch onto for the viewer, and all we're left with is a movie so gratuitous that, if you make the mistake of watching it, it will have likely faded from your memory by the time it's finished. ½
