The Machine girl (2008)
From Imdb: Ami is a typical college girl. She’s bright, friendly, popular and athletic, with nothing to set her apart from other girls her age other than the fact that she is an orphan, left to care for her younger brother after her father committed suicide after being falsely accused of murder. But while there is tragedy in their past, the siblings’ future looks good, except for one thing. Ami’s brother has racked up a considerable debt to another boy at school, and that boy just happens to be the heir to a clan of vicious ninja-yakuza. Ami’s brother can’t pay, violence breaks out and in the course of trying to avenge her brother, Ami is captured by the clan. They torture her and hack her arm right off. Ami escapes, barely alive, and is taken in by the owners of a machine shop who build her a customized, bullet-spewing arm. From that point, the quest for revenge is on in earnest
The Machine Girl is a 2008 japanese movie directed by Noboru Iguchi. For some reason that is unknown to me, it keeps getting compared to Shaun of the Dead.. i really didn’t see it. And believe me, i tried hard, since Shaun of the Dead is just brilliant and knowing there was a movie out there just as good but with japanese schoolgirls (in uniforms!!) making a mess of blood and guts, was the best thing i had heard in a long time.
So definitely no, if you’re looking for smart sarcasm and real jokes, you’re not gonna like this. On the other side though.. come on guys! It’s a japanese schoogirl (in uniform!!!!!) with a mechanical arm shooting bullets and creating copious amounts of gore!! If you ask me, that is still amazing. Plus i don’t think you really need the smart plot to enjoy upskirt shots of a hot young killing machine.
or do you?
