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
Great movie, its fun, its funny, its entertaining. It has comedy, 3 pretty girls, action, blood and sex appeal.
Watching the Iguchi movies, I always feel that the producers and directors are having fun while making the movies. This fun translates into the scenes and movies. This movies is not an exception, some of the comedic elements are hilarious - The Astro Boy scene is a laugh!!.
The action in the movie is quite well done as well. The rampage by Rin in part 1 is very well done. The director knows how to frame the shots to actually make it look like fights.
The acting by the 3 leads is solid, these girls shows an earnestness and professionalism in their roles, no bad B movie acting here. The bad guys are caricatures, the main baddie reminds me of the lead singer from Dead or Alive one of those 80s androgynous pop bands.
The sex appeal - one of the sexiest scenes I have seen in awhile. Thats with both girls fully clothed from neck to toe standing up!!.
