Colour me bad - Tetsuo II: Body Hammer review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
17/03/2009

I still remain disappointed by this sequel to the original Tetsuo. Whereas the first managed a dramatic impact marrying man and machine into a new form of Mecha. Tetsuo 2 only adds colour to the equation with a bigger budget, in search of more mainstream horror. Some may have found the original too gritty, constrained by a low budget and dreary vision. However the black and white images really worked well with Tsukamoto-san's bodily disfigurements. Seeing everything here in vivid colour with more emphasis on the modifications and changes, diminishes Tetsuo as a whole. It was no surprise that Tsukamoto-san moved onto other projects after completing this. Tetsuo III remains an impossibility, thanks to this release.
