Electric Dragon 80.000 V

Overview

Following up on his exuberant Gojoe, which featured an ear-splitting soundtrack and a seizure-inducing editing style, veteran indie director Sogo Ishii spins this bizarre cyberpunk action flick about rock & roll and electricity.

Overview

Following up on his exuberant Gojoe, which featured an ear-splitting soundtrack and a seizure-inducing editing style, veteran indie director Sogo Ishii spins this bizarre cyberpunk action flick about rock & roll and electricity. Ryuganji Morison (Tadanobu Asano) has two loves in his life -- electricity and lizards. As a child, he was struck by a bolt of lightning, rendering him a human battery of sorts. As a result, he can play the electric guitar with freakish intensity and speed. In his quieter moments, he tends his plethora of reptilian companions in a run-down apartment. Raiden Butsuzo (Masaotshi Nagase) was similarly struck down by a bolt of lightning, leaving half his face horribly scarred, which he covers with a metal mask of the Buddha. Raiden -- who works as an electrician by day and a nefarious crime avenger by night using a variety of exotic high-tech gear -- takes a dim view of Morison, whom he views as a potential rival. When Morison returns home to find his beloved lizards fried, he vows revenge. Soon, Tokyo's power grid blows as the two human sparkplugs power up for their final battle.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jonathan Crow
Sogo Ishii's hyperkinetic opus is loud, fast, and gleefully over the top, recalling such vintage Shinya Tsukamoto efforts as Tetsuo: Iron Man. Both films are shot in black-and-white, feature breakneck editing, and concern themes of urban dwellers evolving into something not quite human. But as similar as the two films may be in terms of aesthetics and running time, Electric Dragon drags in spite of its trim, 50-minute length. Asano's character spends far too long mucking around in the bowels of Tokyo rather than battling his adversary. In spite of this, Ishii fashions some brilliantly weird imagery, wildly inventive sequences, and pungent narration such as "He conducts electricity! He talks to lizards! He's the man!" -- delivered in a manner that would sound at home inside a boxing ring. This film was screened at the 2001 Toronto Film Festival as a part of the Midnight Madness program.
