When metal-worshipping fanatics abduct his son, a father unleashes his dormant destructive power, as his naked rage transforms the once-feeble flesh into a grisly symbiosis of metal and tissue. Who dares to defy the ultimate body-hammer?
Three years after the Metal Fetishist's nightmarish transformation in Tetsuo: The Iron Man (1989), the ordinary salaryman, Taniguchi Tomoo, sees his world crumble when fanatic metal-worshipping skinheads abduct his only son. Forced to unleash his dormant destructive power, Tomoo will finally embrace the cathartic effect of the ultimate metamorphosis, as his naked rage transforms the once-feeble flesh into a grisly symbiosis of hard metal and soft tissue. Who dares to stand in the way of the ultimate body-hammer?Written by
Crazy as you could expect, but less than the predecessor.
I just have finished watching the movie. It is visceral and crazy as I expected but is not like the first one. Tetsuo: The Iron Man was an experimental movie. This one is less experimental with a more traditional storytelling. It is visible the movement to give a clear plot, which seems not reasonable because this style of movie is just for cult followers, anime fans or people interested in Japanese underground cinema. The same ones who would watch it with or without a clear plot.
Summarizing: The first movie was shocking and disturbing. This one is just eccentric when compared with its predecessor. Not recommended for normal audiences, maybe for anime fans. Think this movie as an anime. It is easier to enjoy it.
