Over the top in every way possible.
15 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I went into this with not necessarily high expectations, but I had been looking forward to it since I'd been keeping up with trailers and clips when they were released. It looked ridiculous and like it was going to be a lot of fun. The problem though was that I feel like I wound up biting off more than I could chew. The film was ridiculous, but way more than I was expecting. This movie is over the top in every sense of the phrase. The gore is outlandish, the acting is overdone, and the storyline is completely ridiculous. I went in wanting this to be a fun gore fest and walked out with an unexpected helping or two of cheese.

Machine Girl isn't completely horrible. It's still pretty entertaining. While the acting is overdone, it's pretty humorous at times. The fact that blood sprays in every direction for several minutes in just about every other scene in the film is entertaining in itself. There are several scenes in the film that are so over the top and so ludicrous that you can't help but laugh.

If you don't take this film too seriously, you may have some fun with it. It's like they knew ahead of time that this film couldn't be serious and took full advantage of it while they were making it. The movie is worth watching for some of the fight scenes alone as they're some of the bloodiest I've ever seen.
