Even genre fans will probably be disappointed with this one., 21 January 2011
Author: lewiskendell from United States

"Who am I? Am I a robot? A geisha? Even I don't know the answer...either now or in the past."

This movie is insane. Even compared to similar Japanese movies, it's still in a class by itself. I understand that one wouldn't expect a movie called RoboGeisha to be a thoughtful, artsy mood-piece, but, wow. "Perversely imaginative" is a good descriptive phrase that comes to mind. 

That weirdness doesn't deliver a good flick, though. A lot of those campy, ridiculous Japanese movies are a blast to watch, but Robo-Geisha is basically a constant stream of randomness and gore, with little real entertainment factor. You'll go WTF and chuckle at some of the oddities that are thrown at you (like the giant castle/robot doing "the robot"), but a lot of things that are intended to be awesome or campy, instead come off as just dumb. Beyond the appeal of seeing what absurdity will show up on screen next, there's not a lot to recommend about this one. Watch Machine Girl instead.
