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...
There is plenty of Tsukamoto's trademark zaniness on display, our hero's transformation into metal soldier of justice (and revenge) just as weird and as badass as many probably hope it would be.
Audience Reviews for Tetsuo: The Bullet Man
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.
I'm always happy to have new Shinya to watch, especially Tetsuo films. Alas, this one actually explains a bit too much, giving the three films a semblance of plot and connection, which actually takes away from the fun. Those looking for Shinya's usual over the top cyber antics will not be disappointed.
