More of a companion piece to Tetsuo: The Iron Man than a sequel, Tetsuo II: Body Hammer sees director Shinya Tsukamoto's disturbing vision of a world populated by man-machines explode into a stunning color interpretation.

The life of a Japanese businessman is turned upside down when his son is kidnapped by mysterious and brooding figures. Soon he is lured into the jaws of a strange experiment where his rage turns to violence as the manifestation of his anger transforms his body into a killing machine.

As unique and compelling as its predecessor, Tetsuo II mixes awesome violence with darkly surreal imagery to create a visual experience that will leave you breathless.

 The tetsuo project lives on

| | See all isopropophlex's reviews (28)

Tetsuo II is a "re-imagining" of Tetsuo - taking the same concepts from the awesome first movie (which sits in pride of place in my collection next to this movie) and moving them into a different context.

Filmed in colour but with shifted hues and lighting, the concept at the heart of Tetsuo remains, but the story turns to higher conspiracy, and the transformation more through the manipulation of pure fury.

Although improvements are made on the visual aspects of the movie as well as the plot, the film doesn't quite feel the same for its shift into another context, and has a cooler feel throughout. It's still an excellent movie standalone or not, and should be bought at the same time as the first movie to complement it, I feel like its predecessor just can't be overshadowed.
