I picked this film up at the one, and only, horror convention that has happened here in New Orleans since we moved here almost seven years ago. You would think that New Orleans would have more horror stuff but mostly it's just lame Anne Rice shit. Anyway, Tokyo Zombie has been on my to-watch list even prior to owning it. I just never had the chance to get a copy of it until then, and then it sat on my shelf since then as well.

comics ever again.
Tokyo Zombie felt like I was watching a Japanese game show. There were a lot of moments where the humor tried to be too absurd and you're expected to laugh along but it just didn't reach me. The only solid comparisons I could give would be if you take Kung-Fu Hustle and put the Three Stooges as the main characters.
Now that I've said that, I'm okay with Tokyo Zombie, but that's it. Just okay. I'm concerned that I came into this expecting something else though so rather than complain about how this wasn't what I wanted I'm just going to say that I plan to revisit this again at another point and give it a fair shot now that I know what I'm getting into. So I'm going to do something different here and I'm going to suspend my rating of this film. In the future I will re-watch it and give it an honest go.
