Full Metal Yakuza (1997)



Full Metal Gokudô is a japanese action and science fiction film directed by Takashi Miike. It was written by Itaru Era and based on a story by Hiroki Yamaguchi. Originally released in Japan's direct-to-video market (V-Cinema), the film has gained more popularity because of the reputation of its controversial director. Shot on digital video and produced on a tiny budget, Full Metal Yakuza (aka Full Metal Gokudô) is hardly one of Takashi Miike’s most important films, but it’s an entertaining-enough slice of sci-fi trash. The biggest influence here is of course Robocop – emotionally fragile man-machine seeking vengeance from those who turned him cyborg. But unlike the hero of Full Metal Yakuza, Robocop wasn’t endowed with a huge cock, nor was he told to hold a hand to his head and sing a Russian ballad whenever he was feeling over-emotional. This is one of Miike’s most overtly comic films – the pre-cyborg Kensuke is a bumbling oaf, while Hiraga is a super-camp self-proclaimed genius who seems to have only created his robot for a bit of company. Best of all is the technique that he teaches Kensuke to protect his head in combat, a hilarious mincing girly-skip that causes much confusion amongst his foes.
