You generally don't win Academy Awards for movies which feature lines like "She has a machine gun in her ass!", but there are other rewards, like creating the funniest midnight movie ever.
We saw the trailer for this a few months back while watching another fillm and knew that we HAD to see it.
Mindless fun, but I think they made the mistake of trying to develpe the story line way too much. It wasn't really necesary as they appeal here is seeing robogeisha in action.
Too much (weak) story and not enough action! But still fun - in a completely ridiculous way.
Waaaay over the top film aimed at the same audience that enjoyed Machine Girl and Tokyo Gore Police, though this time it's a bit lighter in tone. Fun to see how creatively the team stretches the budget.
"Who am I? Am I a robot? A geisha? Even I don't know the answer...either now or in the past."
This movie is insane. Even compared to similar Japanese movies, it's still in a class by itself. I understand that one wouldn't expect a movie called RoboGeisha to be a thoughtful, artsy mood-piece, but, wow. "Perversely imaginative" is a good descriptive phrase that comes to mind.
That weirdness doesn't deliver a good flick, though. A lot of those campy, ridiculous Japanese movies are a blast to watch, but Robo-Geisha is basically a constant stream of randomness and gore, with little real entertainment factor. You'll go WTF and chuckle at some of the oddities that are thrown at you (like the giant castle/robot doing "the robot"), but a lot of things that are intended to be awesome or campy, instead come off as just dumb. Beyond the appeal of seeing what absurdity will show up on screen next, there's not a lot to recommend about this one. Watch Machine Girl instead.
The 'ass-sword' may be a difficult weapon to master but the 'breast milk from hell' can be used with only minimal training and practice. Of course nothing is as deadly as fried shrimp to the eyes... All of this begs the question, "Why did I rent this?"
