Storyline

On her sixteenth birthday, Rin (Yumi Sugimoto), a bullied, timid schoolgirl witnesses her parents killed by fearful, anti-mutant humans. Rins dormant mutant abilities are awakened and she is driven away from her hometown by an angry mob. She meets other mutants called 'Hiruko', and teams up with Rei (Yuko Takayama), a hardarse, rebellious type, and Yoshie (Suzuka Morita), a cute nurse who is conflicted about killing humans. Tak Sakaguchi plays Kasagari, an evil mutant who has an impotent sword growing out of his stomach. Originally trained by Kasagari, the three girls turn against him and his drive to turn Japan into a human-free zone and must fight him and his other loyal mutant minions. In the tradition of 'Machine Girl' and 'Tokyo Gore Police'. Written by kwedgwood@hotmail.com

Over the Top: Power Rangers Meets Texas Chainsaw
27 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is a typical "tongue and cheek" Japanese satire of X-Men. The film features ridiculous governmental soldiers wearing nose cannons, borderline offensive content that may not be suitable for everybody. The type of silly effects, when a body gets a head or limb chopped off, 10 gallons of vivid red blood issues from the wound.

The story is absurd in the extreme, when the protagonist Rin has her 16th birthday, she not only discovers she is a mutant but both her parents are murdered by the government! This alone is a prime example of how silly and elaborate the story quickly becomes. I guess one could draw a comparison to Peter Parker getting bit by a spider and his Uncle being shot all at once. It would seem that not only is it a requirement to have superpowers one must also have a super tragedy to re-examine their part in the universe. Rin in this aspect is no exception, with people from her home town wanting to skin her and mount her on display at the local mall. Then meeting a weird group of girls led by a slightly demonic kabuki figure.

Lots of cheesy effects, blood, guts, and gore, makes this movie a laugh riot. The boss fights are very confusing with the viewer wondering who they should be cheering on to victory. With weapons like an ass chainsaw and boob swords this is not a family friendly film. I viewed this subtitled on Netflix this month.
