Noboru Iguchi, Yoshihiro Nishimura, and Tak Sakaguchi’s ludicrously absurd action epic “Mutant Girls Squad” was one of my favorite films of 2010, though it has remained elusive to North American movie-goers who were born without an all-region DVD player. What is this world coming to, I ask? Thankfully, the folks over at Well Go USA are preparing to unleash this insanely enjoyable motion picture upon the United States of America this May. No word yet if the disc will contain the related short flick “Yoshie Zero”. Dear God, I certainly hope so.
Can’t remember this one? Here’s a refresher course:
Sugimoto plays Rin, a bullied teenager who discovers her arm has mutated into a razor-sharp weapon on her 16th birthday. A shadow government organization immediately begins hunting her down, slaughtering her parents in the process, but Rin is saved in the nick of time by a super-powered being called “Hiruko”. Soon, mutants from all over Japan are gathered together and begin militant training to overthrow the government. Meanwhile, Rin is fitted with a special iron mask and begins her life as a “battle girl”, utilizing both her mutant powers and acrobatic abilities to fight against mutant-hunting special forces.
You can pick up a copy of “Mutant Girls Squad” on DVD and Blu-ray on May 22nd, 2011. To help generate some interest in the flick, a super cool trailer has been carefully embedded below for maximum enjoyment. It’s sure to blow your tender minds.
