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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
