Movie Info

Buried in books and a quiet life, Ken Kaneki is all but dead to the world in an age where flesh-eating ghouls live among us. But when his only chance for survival is an organ donation that turns him into a ghoul-human hybrid, he finds sanctuary at Anteiku - a café run by the people he once considered monsters. Targeted by anti-ghoul forces, this safe house is up against a hunger more sickening than their own. When their most innocent members are threatened by humanity's taste for vengeance, Kaneki will risk life and limb to protect the very world that changed his own.

Stylishly decorated and generating all-important sympathy for a character living precariously in two worlds, director Kentaro Hagiwara's feature debut gets the drama right but is let down by visual effects that are sometimes unconvincing.

Thus... the film ends up being a Japanese and teenage nephew of Cronenberg's version of The Fly. [Full review in Spanish]

The effects are a bit ropey, but everything else is just slick enough for a franchise.

Tokyo Ghoul definitely captures the spirit of the manga and fans are likely to enjoy it. For all its imperfections, it's a likeable film with plenty of energy and verve.

A beautiful but flawed adaptation.

Audience Reviews for Tokyo Ghoul (Tôkyô gûru)


Hollow and shallow, Tokyo Ghoul fails to bring a cinematic interpretation of its source material, instead bringing to life an uninspiring story that boasts no structure and simply goes on until the screen fades to black. This is a film that will be frustrating to watch if a fan and will be unsucessful to lure in new fans.
