Movie Info

A teenage girl shows the mob who's boss in this over-the-top blend of action, horror, and comedy. Ami (Minase Yashiro) is a seemingly ordinary Japanese schoolgirl who refuses to turn a blind eye when thugs at her school subject her little brother to needless cruelty. Ami retaliates against the vicious kids and their folks, which turns out to be a dangerous decision when she discovers some of them are connected to local gangsters. Ami is kidnapped by strong-arm men whose intimidation tactics include cutting off one of her arms, but Ami refuses to let the criminals go unpunished. With the help of a mechanic sympathetic to her cause, Ami's arm is replaced with a high-caliber machine gun, and she is transformed into a single-minded killing machine in a school uniform. Kataude mashin garu (aka The Machine Girl) also stars Asami Kentaro Shimazu and Taro Suwa. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Outlandish Japanese (where else?) gore-fest about a high school girl on a quest for revenge against the boys responsibe for the death of her young brother - the ring leader of which just happens to be the son of a sadistic Yakuza boss. It's completely OTT and tongue-in-cheek with some awesomely brutal death scenes, some of which are hilarious! And things get even more explosively blood-soaked when the heroine gets a modified machine gun to fit on to her newly severed arm - the result of a nasty Yakuza torture session. Very entertaining and never a dull moment rolls by, but of course it's an aquired taste and not for everyone. Didn't quite find it as good as "Tokyo Gore Police", but gore hounds can't go wrong with this one.

    low budget at times and it shows, but theres certainly a lot of gore on show, with some exiting sequences, and ways they die, not as cool as it thinks it is, and some hammy acting on show, but it does its job, and entertaining to watch,

    Wonderful. Definitely fits the label: So bad it's good. A must see.
