Plot
You may not realize just how gratuitous gore can get until you’ve seen Tokyo Gore Police. There’s blood gushing every other scene. Ten minutes in, you know you’ve stumbled upon something special. It is written, filmed, and edited like an anime, with a hectic camera, extreme lighting, and saturated colors. The pacing intensifies and never really slows down.
The film is a mix of ancient and modern Japanese culture. Cyborgs, cyberpunks, samurais, mutants; costume designers left nothing to chance. The make-up and prosthetic never cease to amaze. I’ve never seen blood so fluid, but that comes with the territory, I guess. Director Yoshihiro Nishimura has a singular way to depict violence and to make fight scenes enthralling.
The writers are cynical, ironic, and sarcastic. The commentary exists but isn’t dense, so you’re really in for a sensational no-brainer. There are massive Dutch angles, zooms, and stuff they tell you to avoid in film school. Shows what they know! Tokyo Gore Police is not for everyone, but at least it’s unique and it doesn’t rehash clichés. It’s grotesque, disgusting, and kind of stupid.
