Machine Girl Review
Written by: Ophelia
Yikes! This movie is bad. Of course, I didn't exactly have high hopes, it is a movie about a girl with a machine gun attached to her severed arm. But as much as I want to recommend this movie as a piece of farce, I just can't. Ami, is a young, athletic pretty girl who is responsible for her younger brother after their parents commited suicide. Her brother, however, isn't doing a good job of looking after himself and after getting mixed up with the local Yakuza gang, gets killed.
Ami, devastated and alone, now seeks answers, but ends up having her arm cut off by the Yakuza. She then seeks refuge with owners of a machine shop, whose son was also killed by the gang. The husband builds her a machine gun arm to defeat the evil-doers, while the tough-as-nails wife, agrees to train Ami in martial arts and pair up with her in fighting the Yakuza. The gore in this movie is low-budget and obvious, the acting and dialogue is terrible and the outfits look like they came from a local fitness depot. (Ninjas in pink jogging outfits are featured here) I laughed throughout the entire first half of the film at the absurdity of it all and then towards the second half, began to wonder when it would all wrap up.
The only real redeeming feature of this flick, are the weapons-Naturally the machine gun arm, but other implements, like drill bras and modified throwing stars, are cool and imaginative. Anyways, if you're VERY bored and/or drunk(I wish I was when I watched this), then you might be moderately entertained, otherwise, you should skip this movie.
