Critic Reviews for Tetsuo: The Bullet Man
The results should please fans eager for another helping of science-fiction body horror, but despite the addition of an American lead and English dialogue, there is little to draw in first-time viewers...
The backstory satisfies a certain urge to know but lacks the gonzo mystery and waking nightmare horror of the original...
Audience Reviews for Tetsuo: The Bullet Man
It's really not a terrible movie but it's definitely way into retarded territory. The delivery of every single line is so bad and the shaky cam and even the whole plot and the way it's dished out is all so stupid. It's like either people in this movie can act, or they can speak English well but no one is capable of both. This is a common problem with Japanese cinema. Japanese people love English and all things foreign so the director shoots everything in English knowing that no one is going to understand it anyway. everyone is just reading the subtitles so the unnatural delivery of the lines and just how stupid they sound evades Japanese audiences. I guess they can save money by not hiring actual capable actors. The only thing i can say is i was never bored and the scenes where Anthony goes nuts are really cool. Also the sounds and music were good. If you can find a compilation video of just the fighting scenes, that would be worth watching, but even that is mostly filled with bad costume/make up special effects and shaky cam.
A man with "android DNA" turns into a metal monster when he gets angry. Pointless b-movie styled remake of an underground classic that turns surrealism into silliness.
Sadly, I was quite disappointed in this one, the first Tsukamoto film that's ever garnered that reaction. It wasn't just the poor line delivery and questionable dialogue, it just seemed that Tsukamoto had nothing new to add to the series. Still, I did like it, he simply cannot fail with keeping a film's visuals and pacing engaging, but I was hoping for so much more.
