After watching this movie, I must say that it is exactly what I expected. A Japanese B-movie with a weak story, lackluster acting, lots of swordfighting and hot Japanese chicks. Its almost like they made a movie so they can showcase a bikini-wearing babe swinging a katana. But you can’t fault the producers of this movie for that ‘cos they based this movie on a video game. And that is exactly what you have here. Lots of zombies to kill with a big boss fight at the end. Somewhere in the middle though, the movie explains a little bit of the back story for the lead character Aya (Eri Otoguro), her sidekick Katsuji and their traveling companion Reiko (Manami Hashimoto) and why they’re out killing zombies. Like duh! Do you really need a reason to kill zombies?
The movie isn’t just R-rated for the gratuitous violence, fake blood and cheesy special effects but also for a nude topless scene. Too bad it doesn’t involve Aya or her companion Reiko but some no-name girl extra who did a love scene with an equally no-name guy extra before they get attacked by zombies. After which, they become zombies too. Nice touch.
It’s hard to say what type of audience the producers are aiming for for this movie. Is it the gamers or the B-movie watchers? Or maybe both. So, if you liked Jap B-movies such as Princess Blade or Machine Girl, then this movie is for you. But if you like good, beautifully choreographed action movies with sword-fighting chicks in them like Hero, House of Flying Daggers or even So Close, then better look elsewhere.
Otherwise, if all you want to see is the gorgeous Eri Otoguro in a two-piece red bikini showing off her hot bod, then by all means watch this movie… or just view/ drool over her pics here. Your choice.
