Storyline

Yoshie, the younger and ill-treated sister of a renowned Geisha, is discovered to have natural strength and fighting ability. She's recruited into an army of Geisha assassins by the rich and powerful owner of a steel-works, Kageno. During training large (and interesting) parts of their bodies are altered into weaponry directly linked to their brains. Yoshie soon realizes that Kagenos real plan is to have his robotic castle throw a new and very powerful nuclear bomb into the centre of Fuji-san, effectively destroying Japan entirely. With the help of other 'Kageno defectors', she sets out to stop him and his Tengu warriors. Written by kwedgwood@gmail.com

Quirky for quirky's sake.
27 December 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Sigh, another Japanese film about half robot / half human assassins that shoot throwing stars from their various body parts and have sword fights in school uniforms. That must be the third one this week! I'm for any excuse that gets hot young nubile chicks in school uniforms killing people in over the top ridiculous ways; but this all seems so calculated and forced.

Quirky for quirky's sake if you will.

There was a scene in True Lies where Arnold Schwarzenegger's character had to translate the demands of terrorists to Jamie Lee Curtis's character. He started with the 'We'll rain down fire upon a new city each day' and as the soapbox preaching grew a little 'samey' he mumbled 'we're tough, we're badasses, blah, blah, blah, blah, blahhh'.

Robogeisha's speech would go 'We Japanese can be a crazy filmmaking breed, get ready for young chicks doing outlandish stuff with unique and wacky plot developments you'll never see coming! We're quirky, we're zany, blah, blah, blah, blah, blahhh.' What they truly meant would be: 'You know, the usual crackpot Japanese style that was momentarily popular overseas when it was new, but damn are we milking it for all it's worth with increasingly lazy and uninspired look at us techniques'.

Final Rating – 4.5 / 10. If the title is enough reason to watch then by all means check this out. Just know that by me saying this is no 'Big Tits Zombie' isn't necessarily a compliment to BTZ.
