Assault Girls

 (2009)

Assault Girls Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

Ghost in the Shell director Oshii Mamoru takes on live-action for the first time in eight years with the sci-fi action film Assault Girls. A continuation of his shorts in the omnibus films Kill and Shin Onna Tachiguishi Retsuden, Assault Girls stars hot young actresses Kikuchi Rinko (Babel), Saeki Hinako (Trick), and Kuroki Meisa (Crows Zero) as three butt-kicking warriors in a post-apocalyptic future. Fans of the director will immediately recognize his traits: deliberate pacing, cerebral storytelling, and a haunting score by Kawai Kenji. Similar to Miike Takashi's Sukiyaki Western Django, Oshii decided to shoot most of Assault Girls in English - a major challenge to his stars (and possibly to his viewers).

For more about Assault Girls and the Assault Girls Blu-ray release, see Assault Girls Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Assault Girls Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Anyone expecting the visual mastery Oshii has shown repeatedly in earlier works is going to be sorely disappointed by Assault Girls' AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. Is this the fault of the Blu-ray? Probably not. Oshii has shot this film on HD video, probably for budgetary reasons, and so we get that smooth textureless appearance that lacks depth and seems to place everything squarely in a two dimensional, shiny flat environment. There is next to no color in this film, obviously by design. Therefore, when we do get brief flashes of outrageous color, like the red-orange dress or the similarly colored snail shell, it seems like a visual breath of fresh air, to mix metaphors. The image is overly soft most of the time and the CGI elements are extremely basic. The overall pallor that this film offers is too uniform to ever generate even "stylistic" interest.


Assault Girls Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Though you'll see the audio specs describe the soundtrack as being Japanese, both the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and the Dolby Digital 2.0 tracks are mostly in English. Oshii gets around this seeming discrepancy by having one of the frankly completely arbitrary "rules" of the virtual game be that "native" languages (in this case Japanese) can't be spoken during the game. That means we get all of the major characters, obviously native Japanese speakers, sputtering semi-English for the bulk of the film. There is one brief sequence in Japanese toward the end of the film. Be that as it may, the lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track is certainly going to be loved by any of you who favor LFE. This is one of the most relentlessly "thumpy" soundtracks in recent memory, with aggressive low frequencies emanating from the subwoofer for virtually the entire film, by virtue of either Kenjii Kawai's pulsating score, or any number of roars from the sand whales or shots from various weapons to bring them down. The sound effects are fairly impressively splayed over the surround channels, but dialogue is almost always squarely front and center. This isn't an overly expressive Kawai score, relegated mostly to heavy bass work that may tend to annoy some listeners after a while. Fidelity is very good to excellent, with a definitely robust low end that will set the floorboards vibrating.
