  1. Gothic And Lolita Psycho is a fun, comic book style action revenge film(sort of a low-rent Kill Bill without Tarantino's genius, of course; but if you feel like killing an hour and a half with a cute actress(Rina Akiyama-voted best butt in Japan a few years ago) this Japanese revenge blood and dismemberment fest is a thrill a minute.

    After witnessing her mother's killing, Yuki(Akiyama) spends her time seeking revenge on the bad guys with well choreographed fight scenes and a cool black leather outfit. The only disappointment is no nudity, only much blood spouting from necks, arms & legs and every imaginable body part. Someone should have advised director Go Ohara of Ms. Akiyama,s best asset(pun intended); even so the ride is worth it.

  2. If you are looking for a film that has a lot of plot development, develops characters really well and has a story that makes you think then please skip this film. It does none of these things, what it does do is move by quickly from one fight to the next with a bit of back story here and there to fill in the blanks a bit. Not entirely as I was still clueless about a couple of things at the end of this one. The story is simple, a girl whose mother was killed by a strange quintet of people clad in black robes is out for revenge against said individuals. The thing that sets her apart from the normal revenge seeking girl is her choice of attire and weapon. She dresses in a Gothic Lolita outfit and uses various parasols as her weaponry. You get to see her do her thing right off the bat as she raids a gambling den and proceeds to really decimate all of those within seeking the strange mistress of the place. I was thinking at this point that we would get this scene then have a whole lot of flashbacks detailing her change to this psycho goth, but we only get a small picture and then she is off to a school to take care of her next target. Good action, I enjoyed the fight scenes better in this one than in other films of this type such as Vampire Girl versus Frankenstein Girl, Machine Girl and Tokyo Gore Police. The gore is about the same as those films, I still give the edge to this one cause it moved by so quickly was not crammed with a bunch of back story on her transformation and it did not have those strange bits of humor such as wrist cutting. While it does poke fun at things, the odd humor does not get placed front and center. My main complaints is that you really do not get enough of an idea why the girl's mother was killed in the first place. Also, while her outfit was cute I was hoping to see more outfits than just the one. Overall, I found it to be a nice bloody and fast moving revenge action/horror film.

  3. The film opens to spaghetti being eaten with an emphasis on the slurping while smoking a cigarette with one's hair grazing the spaghetti. This is at gambling den, where poor people are being tortured or murdered at the amusement of the rich. The camera meanders from one wretched scene to the next until it focuses on two well-to-do criminals who are gambling over odd versus even for the roll of two dice. The winner gets to shoot three tied up victims. After this is completed, the 'loser' gets upset, and the woman who rules the roost calls for her bouncers to settle things down unless the two parties shut up. One party leaves, while the other braces for confrontation.

    Yuki, dressed in Goth style, arrives and beats the nonsense out of everyone except the gambling den owner, whom she decapitates. After the bloodbath, Yuki goes home to her paraplegic father, who had been giving prayers at a small indoor shrine. Miraculously, Yuki's clothes have no blood splatter or spaghetti sauce on them. Yuki burns a card that symbolizes her opponent in her recent victory.

    There are a number of filler segments, sometimes in flashbacks.

    The spaghetti segment at the start. It certainly justified the death of the spaghetti eater and any of his cohorts, but it did not advance the plot or deepen character development.

    There's the segment about the chemistry teacher who wants to demonstrate telekinesis on a spoon, but sends wind up the girls' skirts instead.

    Anything involving the nonsense character Elle. There were four of these. The worst was when Yuki and Elle have guns drawn at point blank range, and they don't fire. Elle takes a phone call, which goes on and on. Sure. Yuki tries to break Elle's neck. Takes forever. Both Yuki and Elle have unlimited numbers of bullets in their guns.

    The laughing of her fifth opponent went on ad nauseam.

    Ridiculous fight scenes:

    The mob fight scene in the gambling den. Yuki spins with her umbrella and defeats/knocks down a dozen larger attackers with knives, swords, and the like. Yuki kills target number one, but that took three, perhaps four, seconds.

    Yuki versus chemistry teacher, mop versus umbrella. After a bit he showed he could fly; still, it was a mop versus an umbrella. In the middle of the fight, he stops to comb the mop's hair. This was one of the persons who killed Yuki's mother. She did not really pursue the question of why he did it, or whether his allies posed further threat. This was target number two.

    Seven guys in a fight club decide to beat up a man with no training whatsoever. Yuki challenges them. They yell for a while, then use their bodies to form English letters. Then they form a character with the group, and say, 'We are kamikaze!' With that sort of introduction, how serious could this group be? Grunting and her umbrella seem to be enough for her to prevail. Absurd. Actually, this should be under 'filler segments.' This goes on and on. The amusing part was that their victim was the one she came to kill, Yuki's target number three.

    Yuki's fights with Elle, her victim number four. This was about as credible as the mid-level opponent fights in the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Whereas fully trained men who each have 50 to 70 pounds of muscle on Yuki cannot defeat Yuki, the diminutive child Elle (a lightweight well under five feet tall) wounds Yuki and narrowly missed killing her. This is the ultimate foulness of this movie. It embraces the unlikely or the impossible. Rather, it seems to insist on it, and rejoice in it. Yuki and Elle fire well over 50 bullets at each other in the second fight…and land zero of them.

    This continues for another 25 or so minutes. It does not get better.

  4. What can I tell about this flick. It's a typical Japanese flick but in the new way. This one do has a story but there isn't that much going on except a few flash backs and a lot of fighting scenes. The credits on the sleeve did mention the new attraction Asami but she's maybe for 2 minutes in this flick. On the other hand they tease you with Rina Akiyama who has won the Best Buttocks Award 2007. Guess she asks to much to show it.

    I found it an average flick with the last fight having something special. Suddenly the flick moves into some kind of possessed flick with devils and monsters. Still, it's full of sputtering wounds, Japanese style. No nudity whatsoever. I have seen so many of those kind of flicks the last months with humour and gore that I can't tell which one was different from the other one. Only for the lovers of the new Japanese horror but for me, old school was much better.
