[[caption-width:283:The use of the word "gore" in the title is very, very appropriate.]]

In 2008, Yoshihiro Nishimura, fast making a name for himself amidst those the likes of Noboru Iguchi, Shinya Tsukamoto, Takashi Miike and Yudai Yamaguchi (and like them, probably more so abroad in the west than in Japan itself), decided to break ahead from being a mere artist of gore effects and take the reins of a film all of his own.

'''''Tokyo Gore Police''''' ('''東京残酷警察''' '''''Tōkyō Zankoku Keisatsu''''') was the result.

It is TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture. Tokyo has became a cyberpunk dystopia with a privatized police force, where blades for cutting one's wrists are advertised on television and civilians can partake in the execution of prisoners via remote control from their homes. Going around murdering prostitutes is a mad scientist called "Key Man", who has created a race of mutants called "Engineers" whose [[BodyHorror injuries immediately transform into bio-mechanical weapons]]. By resurrecting those he murders as Engineers, Key Man is amassing himself a small army. The police officers are finding themselves hard pressed to deal with Key Man and his mutants.

One such police officer is DarkActionGirl Ruka, whose habits regarding her wrists would put [[FanFic/MyImmortal Ebony Dark'ness Dementia Raven Way to shame]]. Ruka has been such a soul since her father was assassinated on the day the police were privatized many years ago. She now seeks to find her father's killer so that she might avenge him.

What ensues is almost two hours-worth of decapitation, dismemberment, disembowelment, katana, [[ChainsawGood chainsaw duels]], penises that double as guns, vagina monsters that eat people, breasts that squirt acid and people propelling themselves into the air with spouts of blood among other things. And then, Ruka discovers that [[spoiler:the one who murdered her father is the Key Man's father]]... [[{{Gorn}} Let us just say that the word "Gore" isn't in the title for the hell of it]].

-----
This film provides examples of:

* BMovie
* BlackComedy
* BloodyHilarious
* '''BodyHorror''': ''Like you wouldn't believe.''
* ChainsawGood: A chainsaw duel is always fine. But how about when a movie ''opens'' with one?
* [[TheChikan Chikan]]: Ruka encounters one in the subway. He may find himself having to use a [[IncrediblyLamePun hands-off]] approach to his perversion soon.
* CrapsackWorld
* DarkActionGirl
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin
* ExploitationFilm
* ForeignQueasine: in the subway scene an extra is seen eating live bugs.
* GagPenis: One police officer [[spoiler:is turned into an Engineer after having his penis bitten off. Guess which part of his body becomes a rather huge "weapon"]].
* '''''{{Gorn}}''''': Well ''duh''!
* HighPressureBlood: It makes ''KillBill'' look like an amateur.
* LovecraftianSuperpower: The Engineers.
* MaleFrontalNudity: Er... kind of. There's a fake-looking severed penis, a blood-squirting stump, and shortly after, a shotgun dong.
* OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank: Honestly, just how much blood do these people have?
* PoliceBrutality
* RocketJump - Ruka's introductory battle
* {{Seppuku}}: One of the fake commercials in the film discourages this, in a strong bit of irony considering everything else in the movie.
* SpiritualSuccessor: To ''Film/TheMachineGirl'' and ''Meatball Machine''.
* ShoutOut: The final showdown bears more than a passing resemblance to the final battle between Amuro and Char in ''MobileSuitGundam''. "''The legs are just for decoration''", indeed...
* VaginaDentata: More like ''Vagina Crocodilia''.
* YouKilledMyFather
* {{Zettai Ryouiki}}: Certainly featured by Ruka on the promotional artwork and DVD cover. However, in the movie itself it tends to lack the stockings.

* BiggusDickus One police officer [[spoiler:is turned into an Engineer after having his penis bitten off. Guess which part of his body becomes a rather huge "weapon"]].



* ExecutiveMeddling: Lead actress Eihi Shiina was recommended by the US production company funding the movie due to the prior success of her movie {{Audition}} for the English market. [[TropesAreNotBad She actually does really well in it.]]
