In the PG-13 version, the murder of two children, three scenes of female topless nudity, a scene of cocaine use, all bloody impact wounds, a scene that implies fellatio and a woman being eaten by a tiger are censored or removed completely. They can be seen in the unrated director's cut. See more »
OK. This is not great cinema. This is not what you would define as a classic.
But for a B movie, it is A+
Like Toxie (The Toxic Adventure), Troma has once again created a character that is likeable and fun, yet this one is a bit of a jerk too. Still, I think that's what's so endearing about the character.
Basically, A bumbling cop accidentally receives the powers of the Kabuki, and has to fight "The Evil One". Lots of silliness. A bit of Troma trademark unneeded nudity (they love showing breasts whenever they can) and some worm eating. Get rid of that part, and it could be a fun series, and I would love to see a series of this. I think it's designed for a short-run TV series that would quickly develop a cult following. The character lends itself to short stories very well. Perhaps a Saturday Morning cartoon (like Toxie did).
Again, it's not great cinema, but it's a silly ride.
