Mutant Girls Squad Blu-ray

Posted March 19, 2012 03:04 PM by Josh Katz

Well Go USAIn May, Well Go USA will bring Mutant Girls Squad to Blu-ray. This action-horror-comedy focuses on five genetically-advanced young women who band together, using their mutant powers to defeat an evil prime minister.

From Well Go USA's official synopsis:

"Rin (Yumi Sugimoto, Engine Squadron Go-onger) has always felt like an outcast among her classmates and peers, and as she's about to turn sixteen, she finds out why - while her mother (Maiko Ito, Shall We Dance?) is human, her dad (Kanji Tsuda, Audition) is a Hiruko, a race of mutant creatures whose bodies transform themselves in strange ways and can sprout weapons at will. Defense Minister Koshimizu (Naoto Takenaka, Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence) has launched a crusade to eliminate the Hirukos in the name of public safety, but Rin's father tells her of an underground Hiruko alliance who are fighting for their right to survive, and after the death of her parents, Rin makes her way to a training camp for young Hirukos. Rin, who now has long blades where her fingers used to be, teams up with fellow teenage warriors Rei (Yűko Takayama, Rescue Wings), Yoshie (Suzuka Morita, Samurai Squadron Shinkenger), Sachie (Cay Izumi, Tokyo Gore Police), and Chiako (Naoi Nagano, RoboGeisha), all of whom have unique bodily weapons of their own, as they set out to take down Koshimizu."

While the technical specifications are still unknown for Well Go USA's Blu-ray/DVD combo pack, the disc features a number of bonus supplements, such as:
  • Two behind-the-scenes featurettes:
  • - Opening Day
    - The Making of Mutant Girls Squad
  • Interviews with filmmakers
  • Short film: "Yoshi Zero"
Mutant Girls Squad streets on May 22nd.

Note: Some material in the following trailer is NSFW.

Who is the poor guy who has to write copy for these fourth tier garbage releases? I may be speaking out of turn, but I don't think the Blu-ray community would suffer too much if the straight to disc movies didn't have a writeup.

@Boothill Gunslinger:

So Well Go USA bringing foreign movies to us, exactly as they were presented overseas is a bad thing? You'd rather they remake and cast new characters to make it an American version? Your logic is simply ludicrous, IMO. Not speaking for everyone, but the majority of posts I see here are against them making an American version of Oldboy and a live action adaptation of Akira, but getting a smaller-scale film and doing the same is perfectly fine? Assuming you would agree with the aforementioned statement, you negated your own logic and now your argument is invalid.

Not saying America is completely incompetent of successfully remaking an overseas film-- I loved 2002's The Ring, and actually just bought it a few hours ago on Blu-ray-- but looking at the received history in the critic's and public's eyes, it's not a good one.

Appreciate and thank Well Go USA for bringing the original movie to us for the ones who want to see it to enjoy. I personally won't have interest in this, but love other films this great company has brought us, much like 2009's The Man From Nowhere, which I recommend to most people at my workplace because it's similarities to 2008's Taken with Liam Neeson, but it's deeper focus on characters and plot, IMO. I really enjoyed both films, don't get me wrong, but as far as emotional ties, I prefer Man From Nowhere because I felt something true for the characters because of the extra time they spent showing character interaction.

To each his own, I suppose.
