A Japanese school girl lives a normal life. She has good friends. A loving family. That is until the Yakuza come along. I ask you, is there any normal Japanese scenario that isn't messed up by those lousy Yakuza? The Yakuza take everything away from her, including half her arm. She survives the ordeal and now, of course, she wants to say she's sorry for getting cross with the Yakuza. Maybe bake some cookies or make them a nice pie. No, screw that! She wants revenge. The worst kind of revenge, because there are some nice kinds that people rarely talk about. So she puts a machine gun on her arm and starts mowing down people like they were blades of grass. But that's not what makes this trailer cool. Okay, well maybe it makes it kind of cool. But I would like to point out a few things in particular that may make this the greatest movie ever created.
There is something called tempura here. It looks as if The Machine Girl has stuck her arm in some flour, rolled it around in some breading and then deep fried it for a bit. As a fan of tempura, I have to say that this looks kind of awesome. I'm guessing that she probably used her tempura arm as a distraction. She flashed it, made the guy hungry for her tempura arm and then she threw scalding water on his face. Because really, how could you not see the scalding water coming?
But tempura is just an appetizer here for the main course. And the main course is human sushi. Yeah, you heard that right. Human sushi. That's some real hatred there. It's not enough to kill the guy. You're going to cut off his fingers, fix them up on a nice bed of rice, wrap it in some seaweed and make the guy eat his own fingers. With no wasabi. Is there no end to the cruelty that The Machine Girl can posses?
Then there's the flying guillotine. Because a stationary guillotine is just not scary enough. Why not attach it to a chain and be good enough that you can throw it so that it locks on top of someone's head and then pulls it right off. That. Is. What. I'm. Talking. About.
And there is also a little something I like to call the drill bra. It's a drill and it's a bra. It gives proper support as it grinds flesh into something revealing meatloaf.
Finally, here's something I can file under in-all-my-years-I've-never-seen-that-before. It looks as if The Machine Girl is shooting a guy so many times that his flesh is coming off his face revealing nothing but skull and eyeballs. From a movie that just rips heads off at will, I appreciate that they avoided the standard just blow the head right off path and instead took some pride in their violence and paid some attention to detail. This scene was not lost on this viewer.
I have no idea when The Machine Girl comes out, but I'm guessing it will probably get select markets first and then it only makes sense that this kind of movie get a general release around Christmas. You know, for the family.
