Film Review: Machine Girl
Take a look at that still! Now you know what you are getting yourself into... a straight up, over the top, take no prisoners BLOODBATH OF A MOVIE! I loved it! If you are into this type of cinema and don't know about The Machine Girl, then you are in for a fun time. This film is in the same flavor as the classic gory ninja films from the 70's such as Duel to the Death. You may be reminded of The Story of Ricky-O as well.
The story follows the path a young girl name Ami takes to avenge the death of her brother by some seriously messed up yakuza. The real kicker is that she replaces her cut off arm with a machine gun (hence the name)! You may be reminded of Robert Rodriguez's Planet Terror, and rightfully so. Don't call this off simply due to the similarity. It's different, extremely entertaining, and hilarious.
Some of my favorite moments were when an arm gets tempura fried and the drill bra. If any of that sounds like something you would be into, then go rent this film NOW!
all I have to say is.... come on sequel!
