First off, TETSUO 2 is far superior to the original. Although I still liked them both, I have to say I was far more impressed with this one than THE IRONMAN. Why? Well the story & plot for one, it seemed to make a lot more sense this time around with a short glimpse into both men's past. All questions asked after viewing the original, I think were answered in this one. The only problem I have with this one is that I think he should of kept it in Black & White.
All comparisons aside, basically to explain this movie in any logical sense is absurd. But what the heck; If you took a boiling pot of water, threw in an episode of the INCREDIBLE HULK, added a tablespoon of A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, and mix it with generous portions of THE TERMINATOR, you would have TETSUO 2: BODY HAMMER. A hyper-kinetic, yeah that's the word, stylish sci-fi movie done in the tradition of Japanimation, only its real-life.
