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
One of the biggest cinematic disappointments of my life
In 2008, Noburu Iguchi delivered one of the greatest gore-flicks of the century....The Machine Girl, when i heard that Noburu Iguchi was involved in the direction of Robo-geisha, i was excited, finally i could see something cool and gory like The Machine Girl....again !
The trailer looked spectacular and weird, there was no doubt: Robo-geisha would be epic like The Machine Girl, unfortunately, the actual movie is a whole different story.
Unfortunately, there is not much gore and most of it is CGI (and in one scene, someone gets shot and the "blood" looks like a bunch of red dots added with a computer), as the story progress, the movie gets boring than ever.
The movie also features the worst use of repeated stock-footage (in the "Geisha-truck" scene), it's even worse than Godzilla Vs Megalon ! The
only thing good about this movie ? Asami (the red-headed chick from The Machine Girl), returns as one of the girls with the Tengu mask (the big nosed mask).
