Tôkyô zankoku keisatsu – TOKYO GORE POLICE – The Dungeon Review!

tokyo gore police poster‘Tokyo Gore Police’ has been on my radar for a long time now. It became available for rental in February, and I should be slapped silly for waiting this long to see it! It delivers everything its title says it will and much more! Its greatest feature, without a doubt, is its creatively brilliant and grotesque mutations! Every freaking one is an absolute wonder to behold!

Ruka’s father, a cop against the privatization of the police force, is assissinated before her eyes. Fast forward to the future and Ruka is now a highly skilled “engineer hunter” with the newly privatized Tokyo Police Force. The engineers are a group of super criminals who grow horrific fleshy weapons in place of missing limbs. Through a path of bloody showers and gory massacres Ruka will learn much about herself and who was responsible for her fathers death.

The above picture is one of the many spectacular mutations in ‘Tokyo Gore Police’. I can’t say enough about the awesome effects in this film. The spurting blood is copious and in one of its many cool scenes Ruka puts up her parasol tostill from tokyo gore police 1 protect herself from the blood shower. Lovely! Although Ruka’s weapon of choice is the sword there are many creative deaths thanks to the strange mutated appendages including, biting, shooting, and chainsawing. Although not a new idea, I really enjoyed the satirical commercial segments. They definitely add their own delightful twist
to the concept. I particularly enjoyed the enthusiastic schoolgirls advertising designer box cutters exclaiming “They’re cute!” When your action is as high energy and over the top as it is in this one, making your non-action sequences interesting can be a challenge. The only real issue was the downtime. Some of these scenes are a bit dull and they mess with the pacing. The film would have benefitted from tightening the story up or simply shaving off minutes from the runtime. Awesome mutants, gore, arterial spraying blood showers, and one super intense and determined Japanese woman make for an ass kicking good time! I look forward to an insanely mutated army of engineers battling the Tokyo Police Force in the sequel! Loads and loads of fun! Highly recommended!

    I don’t personally know anyone who didn’t like this movie, including my girlfriend who isn’t the biggest of gore fans. I’ve seen this one quite a few times and I’m looking forward to Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl next month.

    I’m really loving these over the top gore flicks out of Japan and hope the trend continues on and on. Of course after this one Machine Girl is recommended, unless you’ve already seen it! After that you’ll have to keep your eyes open for VG vs. FG. Let’s hope it makes the rounds sooner than later.

      It would have been great to have seen TGP with a crowd! I couldn’t be more envious of you getting to see VG vs. FG on the big screen!

      I’ve seen machine girl a couple of times but it was before my blogging days. I should re-watch that one and do up a review!

    I’ll make sure to write up a big impressive review for VG vs. FG! The only thing that sucks about it is having to wait. A friend of mine has a brother living in Japan and he’s always sending info on these flicks months and months before I hear anything about them. The waiting to find them is horrible! HAHA!

    It seems the line of over the top gore is always trying to top itself so I’m hyped to see VG vs. FG and see if they top TGP. I’m also dying to find out what is next in the line of gore flicks.

  3. Seeing TGP with a crowd would be amazing, wish I had the opportunity as well. I’m glad you enjoyed this film. Its a fun little ride and it definetely shows that asian filmmakers have a hell of a lot more imagination than US filmmakers. Some of the mutations even made me flinch a little bit lol. I’ll have to check out Bangkok Zombie Crisis’ as well, your review really intrigued me.
