Audience Reviews for Meatball Machine

Bizarre Japanese cyber-punk gore-fest with a bit of tragi-romance thrown in. Despite the obvious low-budget it's got some crazy and oddly impressive make-up effects and visuals... and of course lots of OTT bloody moments. It's a great effort but not a great film but manages to provide an entertaining and original film as much as its budget allowed and has helped kick-start a new wave of Japanese splatter movies.

Alien parasites infect human hosts and morph their bodies into fighting machines who then fight each other--will a couple of sweet, shy young lovers each get infected and be forced to battle to the death? Interesting premise and high gore level, but the focus on (admittedly cool) FX and style at the expense of story makes it ultimately unfulfilling.

Awesome in oh so many ways. Forget the comparisons to Tetsuo, who gives a shit and those complaints are just by people who love to complain about anything. If you're a fan of over the top, no holds barred, weirdo movies this should make your day. A mixture of all types of genres and there is never a dull moment. Highly recommended.
