Critic Reviews for Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky
If you can handle the torrent of grisly violence, you'll find yourself royally entertained by this Hong Kong actioner.
A rather astonishing, starkly stylized blood flood set inside a privatized prison.
A wild martial arts feature that combines a prison movie setting with the sort of gore effects one normally finds in a horror film.
Gore galore but not much more.
You should have been running to the video store before you got to this sentence.
Audience Reviews for Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky
It may be a grateful attempt at being a visually advanced film at its time (which could be humorous and entertaining once you really get to think about it) the film does no good and ends up looking like a parody, or rather a slapstick of a martial arts film. Ricky-oh: the Story of Ricky is just as predictable and effortless as the effects and misdirections portrayed in the film. 1/5
Absurdly over the top violence plus hilariously ridiculous dramatization and the result is quite a fun movie
