One of the craziest movies i've ever seen. violence pumped up to 10, weird creatures left and right and a plot that twists and turns. A must watch for horror and Japanese film enthusiasts everywhere.

If you've seen The Machine Girl then you'll know what to expect, some extreme mist of that red stream we identify none-other-then blood and gore and plenty of it for your viewing pleasure. Yoshihiro Nishimura had only directed one film credited to him (Speakerman: The Boo) before his NR (Not Rated) Tokyo Gore Police came to be, the rest of the films he worked on were in the makeup department/Special Effects area, so I was a bit iffy if his second directorial motion picture would be any good seeing that his talents are strongest in structure and production. Nevertheless, with some great teamwork from co-writer Kengo Kaji (Uzumaki) and an added taste of commercials utilized in 1987's RoboCop and 1997's Starship Troopers, putting something together was minimal enough for him to concentrate more on the gore.

In general, this is a comically fine film to watch in an abnormal sense and definitely worth the price of admission. Shiina portrays her character fittingly without the reminder of the tortures "Asami Yamakazaki" (main character from Audition), performed her radical fight scenes well-crafted by Tak Sakaguchi (Versus) and fits right in with the entire mind-boggling massacre. This can all be looked over while the first time viewing it is about whom gets chopped up and how it happens.

Wild, over-the-top and extremely violent.

"Tokyo Gore Police" is insane. This is one of the most twisted, disgusting and totally engrossing films I've seen in a while. I loved it.

Dismembered body parts. Fountains of blood. Weird mutations that grow out of wounds. Psychotic sexual fantasies. Some girl who tries to do sword fights with a katana. A deranged privatised police force. etc.

That's pretty much what's you'll get to see throughout the movie. If you're expecting a story that even remotely makes sense, you overestimate this film. It just...... lacks some of the basic elements of storytelling.

The whole film seems like the vision of a psychopath having a bad LSD trip. Because some of the scenes are so completely surreal you've got to give the creators some credit, I believe this film deserves a 1. But for lack of a basic storyline, it would not feel right to give it any higher vote.

The use of gore is insanely present here and it is all Tokyo Gore Police is about. TGP shows you all gore and only gore. Forget about a plot, character traits, or anything that is not painted red with blood. Only gore is necessary!

Shock value, shock value, and more shock value. Gagged a few times and was just ready for it to finish.

In a world of engineers, it's up to the privatized police to stop those who have been genetically modified. Meanwhile, our protagonist is out to avenge her father. I'm a big fan of Machine Girl and a few other Splatter films and this was a film that I have put off for a long time. It's fetish, it's gore, and it has a very Grindhouse feel to it. I loved the scenes at the club with a lot of out of the box latex by Japanese designer Kurage, and the whole Crocodile mouth scene there. It does lag a little bit in the overall beginning of the film under a bit too much exposition, but when it wants to ramp up the ridiculous factor, it really goes for it and Tokyo Gore Police was a very fun film. grade: C+

The plot is kinda lackluster and the acting is only sometimes good, but sometimes I just really need some of TGP's special brand of body horror to cheer me up. Four stars for all the smiles.

Trigger warning: explicit self-harm.

Insanely gross and engrossing.

This is one of the most ridiculous, silly, gratuitously bloody movies I've ever seen. It's awesome. Go watch it!

When it comes to Body Horror Cronenberg's got nothing over Yoshihiro Nishimura!

The title alone pretty much says it. Set in Japan, involving the police and last but not least gore by the bocketload! Never since i saw Braindead for the first time have i ever thought I would see a film that was any gorier, but trust me i just have!! I think the filmmakers were pretty self-aware and just wanted to make the goriest film ever, in which i would say they succeeded. Only recommended for gore hounds though. Any normal moviegoer sould probaly stay away, since it's, well very gory.

Sam Raimi (Army of Darkness) meets Peter Jackson (Dead Alive) meets David Cronenberg (any of his movies dealing with technology and flesh mutilation) meets Shinya Tsukamoto (Tetsuo: The Iron Man) and a whole slew of other previous movies based in senseless over-the-top gore with unique killers and heroes. Sounds good but I found this to be as disengaging and boring as possible. Nishimura's direction here is also at fault for going along the more grim and dramatic route (instead of focusing on comedy/satire) with overused cinematic styles such as slow motion build-ups to less than stellar action sequences alongside a rather boring narrative partially lifted from Blade Runner. I see no draw here when all the previous movies mentioned in this review are far more engaging, entertaining and well-made. A total waste of time, when this is getting good reviews from my fellow gorehounds I must face the reality that the genre is far past its prime.

Eihi Shiina, that freakish girl from Audition, stars as a sword-wielding agent of death in Tokyo Gore Police, a B-movie of epic proportions. Strange and unnecessarily violent, Yoshihiro Nishimura's dystopian futuristic horror packs in a lot of tongue in cheek humour and a sexy heroine you can't help but route for.

Crazy and mind blowing fun.

This movie is the reigning champion of J-Splatter.

Well its certainly gory that's for damn sure, I've never seen so much fake watery looking blood. It literately explodes from the screen into your face! fountains and streams of gushing blood at every turn.

The films instantly conjures thoughts of 'Robocop' and 'Starship Troopers' as we are introduced to little news flashes or adverts showing thick dark humour laced with heavy doses of satire. A privatised police force that 'protects' Tokyo against the threat of 'engineers' (self mutated insane berserker criminals).

There's such a colourful blend of genres here its hard to pin down really, think 'Kill Bill' with quirky fantasy and horror. The plot is bizarre and chock full of fetish and kink, rubber bound ladies and femme fatales, a real pleasure for all alternatives out there. Add a crazy mix of down right blatant B-movie effects alongside some pretty good gore effects combined with ingenious camera angles and surreal visions.

I liked the futuristic Japanese police with their black samurai suits and many of the nightmarish mutant engineers are fun to see in action. Lots of katana face splitting and body popping with a man who shoots eyeballs from little cannon extensions in his eye sockets to a girl who's lower half becomes a gaping alligator-esque maw.

Its totally comicbook or manga I guess with so much blood it becomes funny rather than scary but that's the idea really. Not vicious more screwball really but with some nice slick visuals at times, bizarre imagination and many memorable moments. I think I can see where Tarantino looks to for inspiration or is it vice versa? loved the limbless pet gimp.
